Just a Fun and Crazy Shoe Lady!


Today is a 'weird shoe day'!

Celine Kiraro Sandals
by Croatian designer Ivana Omazic

Where to start?!!

I have been collecting photos of 'crazy' shoes for awhile. Let's have fun today!!

Louis Vuitton Daisy half-boot
monogram denim with Mongolian lamb wood, metal and leather

don't ask me what the 'thing' is on the back because I have no idea!!

Kaleidescope platforms

note the 'no heel'

I did check out fantasy shoes on etsy,
as well as weird shoes on google images!

faux fur pink shoes with a 6inch heel

'Mourning Cloak' by Winde Rienstra - 31 weird shoes you won't believe

[By the way....
are those zip ties???]

I found not only handmade creations, but some pretty funky vintage finds too!

Not only do the well known fashion designers have
Foot Fashion Faux Pas,
but there are some,
shall we say 'bizarre' and 'unique' shoe designers out there?
Current. Right now.
and selling these fantastical creations!

vintage cowboy boots custom adorned with...

croc-embossed leather with 6 inch platforms and spikes

Not to disparage anyone, but these just aren't my every-day,
go-to footwear...

Lame Platform Sandals

Prada leather tabi split toe sock 'sandals'

both from the Miuccia Spring runway

and yes, I think that first one really is a 'sandal'!

Here are some more 'funky' sandals...

from designer Tevas original white water rafter 1983
seen on the walkways Spring 2011

Okay, don't  you think those look like re-makes of 
a medical 'I broke-something-shoe'??!?

And that was the best foot model they could find???
Makes me think 'OUCH' just looking at it...

so named after the Dracula story, complete with real garlic cloves and a stake heel!
