Stylist magazine's "Most Desired"

(30 Posts)

According to this week's Stylist magazine these shoes are desirable. I actually laughed out loud. They're hideous!!! Or AIBU? Should I fork out the £750 to look like my eccentric 80 yr old neighbour? According to Stylist you should "pair them with a floaty micro-floral print midi skirt or dress for an elegant summer wedding". grin

What's grin about it? I'm sure there are many people who think what you wear is hideous too.

I would never wear them, but don't sneer at people for what they want to wear. It's horrible.

That pairing also sounds fine, don't get the issue confused

These threads are horrible, so "lets sneer at the stupid fashion people".

It's a pair of shoes, I doubt op hurt their feelings.

I happen to think they look very comfortable. I imagine them to be very soothing to the foot.

I'm not sneering at fashion people, I'm sneering at those hideous shoes! grin

Could not be arsed with all those buckles though.

Love them. I'd prefer them in black, but they look great to me. I'm a bit of an eccentric neighbour type though ;)

Those shoes are fucking heinous.

Stylist is free so they must get paid to advertise this stuff. Also funny is the 'what we're craving' this week page - full of expensive, pointless stuff.

They are an abomination OP. YANBU.

I'd weat the inside shoes, but not the court shoes on the outside - it's like shoes for me and my mum in one pair! grin

would I buy them if I had a spare £750? Not unless the outer shoes are removable and I had more money than sense.

TooOldForGlitter Thu 03-Mar-16 15:50:43

Ugh, they are bloody awful.

There is nobody in the shoes *Portobello so it's only the inanimate object being sneered at....!

Destinysdaughter Thu 03-Mar-16 16:01:41

Ooh I saw those shoes in The Stylist and really liked them ! Wouldn't pay the ridiculous price they're asking tho.

Destinysdaughter Thu 03-Mar-16 16:04:20

However, I actually have these shoes, so not so dissimilar!

WilLiAmHerschel Thu 03-Mar-16 16:06:37

Those don't look quite so soft on the foot Destiny.

PrivatePike Thu 03-Mar-16 16:06:58

I love those shoes

PrivatePike Thu 03-Mar-16 16:07:40

The OP ones, not Destiny's ones (sorry Destiny!).

NNalreadyinuse Thu 03-Mar-16 16:10:26

Those shoes are minging. Anyone who pisses £750 up the wall to buy them has more money than sense and deserves to be criticised.

squoosh Thu 03-Mar-16 16:12:17

They're the kind of shoes Amy from Little Women would have given her eye teeth for.

I like fashion.

I also like laughing at fashion.

boredofchangingusernames Thu 03-Mar-16 16:12:57

Destiny I quite like them! Maybe it's the heel on the chanel ones that makes them so unappealing to me; they are just so low and clunky.

squoosh Thu 03-Mar-16 16:13:07

Do the buns come free with every purchase? In that case I may be persuaded.

PrivatePike Thu 03-Mar-16 16:13:34

Nope. So what if someone wants to spend £750 on some lovely shoes, what's it to you? Why on earth do they 'deserve to be criticised'?

PrivatePike Thu 03-Mar-16 16:14:50

I like the Amy March link!

boredofchangingusernames Thu 03-Mar-16 16:16:13

I certainly hope so Squoosh; if I parted with £750 for a pair of shoes I'd need a sugar fix to steady my nerves.

Cerseirys Thu 03-Mar-16 16:17:42

Weren't those shoes last seen at the court of Louis XIV?

squoosh Thu 03-Mar-16 16:19:31

That heel is very much in this season.

I'll be giving it a miss though.

..............until I think 'ah sure, just trying a pair on won't hurt'.
