Browsing Next for some fairly plain black heels and came across these monstrosities. Am I missing something? Why, just why?

Gorgeous grin

I Like them!

They look like the hooves of a show pony.

Yes they do look like pony hooves and yes £85 is way too much but I'd buy them if they were 30 quid 😀

They certainly don't do anything for me but whatever floats your boat I suppose

I think Next is starting to go the way of M&S in terms of the frumpy and bizarre confused

You'd want to have soft heels or / and a Soap and Glory foot file or similar smile

HowardMoonsJazzTrumpet Fri 13-Jan-17 19:08:08

There's a lot going on there, design-wise isn't there?

Shoes reached peak fugly years ago. Those are indeed shocking but I see worse everywhere I go.

85 Great British Pounds Sterling?! Sweet Jesus..

See this is just the kind of fashion weirdness that hurts my brain...
is it hot enough for open toed sandals or is it cold enough for boots?

Fuzzypeggy Fri 13-Jan-17 19:29:17

I used to think so too rick but peep toe boots have been around for several years now and I've just got used to seeing them. Fine for a night out imo

ThroughThickAndThin01 Fri 13-Jan-17 19:30:13

They're fine! What's wrong with them?

GreenShadow Fri 13-Jan-17 19:51:18

Agree with you OP. They look awful. But then I'm Mrs Frump from Frumpville.

Amethyst81 Fri 13-Jan-17 21:50:51

Agree OP they are absurd and hideous! Who would pay £85 I wonder?

JournosAreLazy Fri 13-Jan-17 21:58:11

I can imagine Topshop stocking them and probably selling out. However they don't really seem right for most of Next's customer base or target audience. Plus they look a bit cheap for £85. Ridiculous price.

i like them

Poodle paws grin but I have seen worse.

They're the bastard offspring of a shoeboot and a cold shoulder top

Lules Sat 14-Jan-17 01:51:37

See I have plenty of mainly young mainly student friends who would wear them. Yes I think they're ugly but I don't think it's aimed at me.

EddieStobbart Sat 14-Jan-17 01:53:22

Have come to conclusion I don't "get" most clothes on high street and if it's a trendy shop (so not Next) it's completely beyond me - big fluffy acrylic jumper and calf length pleated skirt in Top Shop window, nope, I don't understand, even the mannequin looks frumpsville shit.
