Look on my shoes, ye mighty, and puke
The Manolo, he normally has the most exquisite of tastes, but this is more than anyone should have to look at.
I can't help but think that this shoe would be massively improved by losing that cluster of petrified jelly beans around the vamp, and it might save a couple bucks off the $765 price. Lindsay Beyerstein suggests that Katherine Harris might own three pair of these, which strikes me as unlikely: nobody with vision correctable to the minimum acceptable for a driver's license would buy even two pair of these. (To make this look even bearable, you have to have legs that go on for days, presumably drawing the eyes away from the shoes. )Posted at 7:52 AM to Rag Trade
