Taking Jungle Fever To A New Level

What is going ON here? These shoes make my head hurt (and my eyes bleed). You have heel, you have a myriad of straps (just THINK of the tan lines), and you have that god awful snake print, and there's that "nifty" weaving down the front (which actually makes it look like there's a friggin snake on your foot-- sexy kinda...ew.)

Looks like somone over at Dolce Vita got a little strap-happy. And none of them are even functional. The entry to this shoe?

A zipper. Of course!

Net Worth

Can't decide if you want to wear strappy stilettos or just throw on some fishnets? Well good thing Emilio Pucci designed this with you in mind. And he has the balls to call it a boot. My first exposure to boots was cowgirl boots & paddock boots (used for equestrian sports). These are most certainly not boots.
That stiletto is 5 1/4" tall, but the whimsical copywriter who describes these uglies wants you to know that the platform toe makes it feel like "only" 3 1/2!

But the best part about these? They cost over a thousand fucking dollars. Yeah. These shoes are listed at $1,165.00 on Zappos. That's balls, Emilio Pucci. Serious balls.

Bootie Sandals

Ok seriously.

What. The hell.

I was first introduced to the Bootie Sandal when Sugar Shoes sent me an email blast entitled "BOOTY SANDALS". Excuse me? I imagined something pretty damn heinous. And I really hope someone in copyediting got a serious smack on the wrists. Preferably with one of these ugly shoes. They aren't even that cheap. The featured "Ghostdance" style at the top of the page will run you $54.99 plus an additional $5.95 in shipping. It comes in 2 other colors, if you dare.If fringe isn't your thing, you can pick up the "Navajo Mosaic Floral" for $44.99 (plus shipping). There are a couple of other equally terrible versions of the Navajo as well.

It has since come to my attention through the magic of Google-Fu that Sugar Shoes is not the only brand making these abominations. My mind: boggled.
