Veal with a heel
Shoewawa picked this as their Ugly Shoe of the Week, and it is indeed hideous: "[Marc Jacobs has] taken it upon himself to spit on the very name of poor little calves. Made literally from calf hair, this is the designer equivalent of a farmyard petting zoo; and while I'm usually not averse to leather footwear, this pair just about makes me cry." And if the appearance doesn't bring tears, the price tag will: $998.95 at Zappos Couture, which describes them as "fierce and a bit funky." If you say so, Zapp.
Addendum: I showed these (well, the picture anyway) to Trini; she found them to have no redeeming social value.Posted at 8:33 PM to Rag Trade
