We warned you about those fugly lace-up flats that top designers such as Christian Louboutin, Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui and Jill Sander are unveiling for fall—and now, we regret to inform you, they've arrived at Urban Outfitters.
Sure, we know people who could pull these off, but those people are special. Much more special than we will ever be. So no. No, we will not let these shoes touch our toes.
We advise you do the same...or, if you think you can rock this look, send us a pic and prove it! (We won't hold our breath.)
AAAAAAAHHHHHH!!! I can honestly say that my boyfriend would leave me if I tried to wear those.
hey - those look like my Easy Spirits from the 90's (which i would never wear now). if a shoe is mucho ugly, it has to be comfortable to be ok to wear. these don't look like they have any support or soles to speak of. Ugly + Uncomfortable = Unwearable.
These shoes are super ugly, but I have to give it to Urban Outfitters for cutting a deal with Project Runway designer Jay McCarroll. I love his fun, funky, futuristic sportswear. Can't wait to see his stuff in stores. I hope the deal is still on.
Smart move on Urban's part for sure! Seems like they've been scooping up talent at lightning speed lately...Alex & Chloe, for example.
