Wherein Style Spy Cowers in Terror

Someone explain these shoes to me:

(Balenciaga -- Balenciaga!!! Oh, the mind reels! Oh, the heartbreak!!-- Fall 2007)

I don't understand them. I don't like them. They hurt my feelings. They frighten me. They are the hideous bastard offspring of the unholy coupling of a ski boot and a plastic stripper shoe. They should never have been allowed to see the light of day. They are dangerous abominations of nature. What were they thinking?? Didn't any of these people read Frankenstein???

No good can come of this...

I find them fascinating. I could stare at them for hours.

Suzy -- but do you want to wear them??

The bottom pair looks like a cross between heels and a snowboard. And I wonder how long it takes to put that top pair on. Either way, you know *I* won't be wearing them!

Absolutely NOT! :-)

I confess, with no small amount of horror, that I'm fascinated by the darker pair. As sculpture, they're very interesting. As footware, I wouldn't even want to guess.
