Ugly Shoe of the Week: Comme des Garcons

As Shoeperwoman observes, there’s been a disturbing spate of ‘footwear with faces’ recently but in the case of these rather upsetting ‘toe’ shoes by Comme des Garcons, the designer has at least got a basic grasp of anatomy.

My problem with these shoes and indeed any that emphasise the toes is that toes really aren’t a part of the body I particularly want to celebrate. Vivienne Westwood just about gets away with it in her kooky animal-toe bondage boots, but the toes here don’t look particularly healthy, and get in the way of what would otherwise be a highly wearable style. Well, chacun sa route
