For its spring 2010 collection Prada unveiled these chandelier-inspired shoes. Take a gander:
We're throwing the floor open for opinions as always, but we just can't keep our mouths shut on this one. While there is a certain fabulosity to the idea, the end result just looks ridiculous to us. Worse (and we rarely say this about shoes) they look downright dangerous; a potential lawsuit in shoe form.
Even if we ignore the massive impracticality of these shoes, we can't forgive that truly horrible visible strip of velcro in the strap. Miuccia , what were you thinking, honey? She always likes to bring something new to the table with her shoe designs but this is just way too silly.
And on a more general note, can we just say to the collective fashion community: STOP TRYING TO REINVENT THE SHOE. It's not gonna happen, bitches. For the past several years, the shoes have been getting increasingly heavy and bizarre-looking with each passing season. Fashionistas might coo over them for a season or two but we all know the basic pump, mule, and slingback are always going to come back in style and always have a place in most women's closets.
