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!
