Oyl on troubled waters

Last time we took a look at Kobi Levi shoes, we saw what appeared to be a semi-conventional oxford with a wad of bubble gum for the heel. At the time, I warned that this was not the weirdest shoe Kobi Levi had ever come up with.

Donna sent me pictures of about a dozen of his styles, mostly due to my presumed status as Curator of the Weird Shoe Museum. (Actually, I thought these guys were doing that.) After staring in disbelief for several minutes, I decided that this one was the least incomprehensible:

Asked for comment, Popeye quipped, “It’s proven through history / That woman’s a mystery.”

    Have to admit that I love his work (although I don’t think I’d try to wear them).

    Those shoes look like cows. Yes, I realize they are shoes, but they still look like cows.
