The Shoes you should NEVER Wear

alexander mcqueen shoes gaga

Oh look, let’s trot about in horse hooves that have been bedazzled? How about NO.

ShesSmart.com ladies, if I ever catch you wanting to wear a pair of these Alexander McQueen shoes (or knockoff’s) I’m giving myself permission to slap you silly! Not only are they unattractive, these are shoes that were so intimidating that models Abbey Lee Kershaw, Sasha Pivovarova and Natasha Poly (probably all famous, but I don’t really follow models too much)  all decided not to walk in McQueen’s show, lest they have to wear them and risk tripping. If you’re not Lady Gaga, you don’t need to be wearing these things which look like horse hooves! (Image from Grazia.)

See, those models were smart. You could twist your ankle so fast in shoes like these. And I guess the point isn’t just about these particular McQueen shoes – if you have a pair of shoes you’re considering buying but you’re thinking they’re dangerous and will be tough to walk in… you have to make the tough call and let them stay at the store.

As you know, Sophomore year of high school is a VERY important time in a young girl’s life. I went on a shopping trip before school started that year and came back with a pair of really gorgeous brown/wood Steve Madden platform pumps. They were sooo tres, tres cute. Everyone agreed!

I brought them home, even though I was unsure. And I practiced walking on the carpet. I really wanted to wear them for the first day of school.

But I kept having images of myself being jostled up and down the crowded stairwells, and toppling over because the shoes were kind of difficult to walk in. So I made that sad decision to return them. But it was for the best, because you can’t live down high school embarrassments easily. Especially now that there’s the Internet and your ‘friends’ might take pictures of the horrific event! It’s too dangerous out there to willingly put yourself in a situation that’s begging for chaos.
