Steve Madden's "Bukled" = Ick

Let me just first say I'm a HUGE Steve Madden fan. I own tons of his shoes, including four versions of my favorite shoe, the lovely and delicate Loucee Pump. Yet I think every so often a designer stumbles, and this shoe called "Buckled" is evidence of this. I am all for pushing the envelope of fashion, but this is a clown shoe, pure and simple. Why? I must ask. Why stray from making stylish women's shoes, and create something like this? What IS this?

Am I overreacting? Thoughts?

Maybe I'm just crabby from another fruitless evening of searching for that ever-elusive black A-line skirt that haunts my very soul. I'm so tired of looking I'm about to give up. But then I get mad and keep looking even harder.

And then I see this shoe and I get really annoyed. Well, I better close the laptop for now. Nothing but bad vibes are coming from these fingers tonight!

Wow. In the world of footwear faux pas, these rank up there with the Great Manolo Blahnik/Timberland Stiletto Boot Incident of 2001.

Somewhere in the world a beautiful little ballet flat just went into shock.

Ugly... the only way I could ever imagine those being worn (and only if I was forced) is with all-black outfit.

Enjoy your shoe posts!
