The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

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. )

They don't look that bad to me... Of course I say that knowing full well that my big toe wouldn't fit inside those shoes.

I must point out here that both of you have legs that go on for days. (Which means that if you wear these, your eyes will be comparatively far from the actual shoes.)

The only woman whose overall looks would be improved by those shoes, already looks like a Salvador Dali painting.

My car cost less than those shoes. (actually my car cost less than one of those shoes)
