Designer Kobi Levi came up with these outrageous shoes guaranteed to cause mass WTF looks on the street. So, if you’re wearing one of these pairs of shoes on the street and you hear a loud crash, pat yourself on the back for causing an accident. Anyway, I have to say these are super creative, especially the decapitated blow-up doll shoes in the second photo. I think I would actually wear the bubble gum heels. The dog shoes are out of the question just out of respect for Mr. Marmar and his posse. And the double boot must look freaky on. Reminds me of the cover of that Philip Starck book with the head on backwards on his own body. Freaky!

Check out these spiny, bony heels by DSquared ! This charters into Alexander McQueen territory. I think the black shoe and white heel makes it look weird… I think it would be cooler if it was all bone color or all black or all gold. Actually, gold would be pimpin’! This is when the ghetto in me comes out. I love gold and I don’t care what anyone says! Who cares if gold looks like you just picked it up from the corner pawn shop? Or if it looks like it belongs on an Arab sheikh’s toilet? It’s gold, right? There was a time when I didn’t like gold, then Flava Fav happened to me. Fight the Power!

Spats have made a comeback thanks to the Steampunk trend. Here are my 2 favorite Spat makers, Ashes & Empires ( the gothy ones) and  German designer, Maide (the Victorian ones). Spats are a great way to cover your cankle or disguise your fugliest shoes. I dig that. I was doing some intense research ( I googled ‘spats’) and found that they are still worn in the military around the world. I also found that molten metal pourers wear spats to keep the hot, liquid metal off their feet. My intense research also found that Johnny Depp in Benny and Joon wore them, as well. With those three pieces of information, there’s a joke in there somewhere… I just can’t find it right now.

The original French Punk , Jean Paul Gaultier has teamed with British combat boot maker, Dr. Marten. With laser -cut diamond holes on each side of the boot, it now matters what socks you’ll be wearing. I would with go hot pink socks! These 14 hole Doc’s will run about 300 Euros, which is probably $5,000 with all the inflation and the ‘obnoxious American’ tax. You know Europe probably has an ‘Obnoxious American’ tax by now. It’s been lowered since Obama took over, though. Kidding! I wish they had these boots in the mid -nineties when I would actually wear these. It’s funny, the Doc’s were worn by the punk anarchists and the conservatives wore Keds. I tell you-when in doubt, look at the shoes.

Two fashion things I hate in this world  (except for scrunchies and UGG boots) are sweatpants and khakis. Alexander Wang had a personal vendetta to make me cringe and vomit  when he designed his Spring 2010 collection. Why do I dislike these two hideously, inferior fabrics, you ask?

-Khaki’s remind me of frat boys wearing khaki’s. They also remind me of safari wear, which in turn reminds me of the movie,   Out of Africa and further spurs my memory to the time when  I was 7 and was forced to see this movie in a theater with my family. That was one expensive and uncomfortable nap. Scarred!

– Sweatpants reminds me of my tween, tomboy stage where I wore yellow Benetton sweatpants endlessly. It matched the family car- a yellow Toyota ( nefariously nicknamed the ‘Bina-Banana mobile’). Scarred, once again!

Stop this insanity!! Serenity now.

Nicholas Kirkwood’s furry ankle boots have a Planet of the Apes flair to them that I don’t think is attractive. There’s a lot of hairy fashions going around. Click here for a few…. Although, I haven’t seen the hairy fashions on the streets yet, I’m tempted to carry a bottle of Nair, just in case, and splash when needed. What they don’t tell you is that after a couple years, the hair becomes like this. Nasty!  While we’re on the subject….ever see a donkey with dreadlocks? Here’s one! These boots cost $1200…. Let me save you $1195 and glue some Yaki-braids to a pair of Payless boots…. really.
