Comics Shoes: Stylin’ or Stupid?

Food for thought: Comics shoes.

FANBOYS: If your girlfriend showed up sporting these, what would you do? Multiple choice options after the jump!

Would you be:

A) CHARMED by both the shoes and the gesture — your girlfriend is so supportive of your passion!
B) DISMISSIVE of the lettering — the designer has nothing on Todd Klein
C) SEXUALLY AROUSED, though you’d never tell her
D) SEXUALLY AROUSED, and planning to ask her to wear them next time you get busy
E) HORRIFIED to learn they cost $598. You could have spent that money on books!

FANGIRLS: If you saw them for 50% off, would you be:

A) REACHING for your wallet
B)
DISMISSIVE of the artwork — the designer has nothing on Keith Haring
C) INSPIRED: You’re going to paint your Docs just like that!
D) SURE your boyfriend would find them sexually arousing. Maybe once you paint your Docs, you’ll wear them next time you get busy
E) DISGUSTED by the internalized misogyny that leads women to hobble around on teetering platforms
F) HORRIFIED to learn they cost $299. You could spend that money on books!

I HOPE YOUR ANSWERS led you to important insights about yourself. If not, you can apply the same questions to these cute wedgies by Angeline Tournier. Personally, I think they’re more fun than the ones above. (Those are Betty & Veronica strips, FYI.)comics-wedges-angeline-tournier

    I thought the Betty & Veronica shoes were cute, though I wouldn’t wear them myself. (I might wear a necktie with a Betty & Veronica print, however…)

    Well, I can’t say stupid, because I own a pair of shoes that are painted in super bright colors, with comic-style lettering on them. Except they’re not comics, they’re just Italian words.
