"Just why?" applies to every single pair of shoes on this page IMHO.

Do people buy stuff that is so ugly?

Wow. Some of these are extremely ‘interesting ‘ . Hard to guess who their target audience might be.

PuntCuffin Mon 12-Mar-18 20:37:44

blush there are a couple there that I quite like in a sort of anti-style funky way that I wish I could pull off, but I am neither young enough nor old enough to get away with it.

HorseDentist Mon 12-Mar-18 20:40:30

Oh my mother would love these!cake

Herja Mon 12-Mar-18 20:40:54

There's 2 pairs there that I quite like...

Not enough to buy them, but like none the less.

I'm sure Pheobe in Friends had a pair like that.
She bought them from eBay thinking they belonged to the "late" Shania Twain smile

It’s the bright colours. I bet some would look ok in a soft grey leather or tan, but Red? Yellow? They’re awful. Plus, I’d spend the day constantly catching sight of my massive red feet.

calzone Mon 12-Mar-18 21:21:59

I actually quite like the yellow ones.

Ginkypig Mon 12-Mar-18 21:24:12

There are two or three of them I quite like but would only get them if I found them say on eBay with no bids type of cheap.

CruCru Mon 12-Mar-18 21:42:10

I like them, they’re rather Scandinavian. Plus yellow shoes go with everything.

RoseWhiteTips Mon 12-Mar-18 21:43:01

God-awful. 🤮

EnidButton Mon 12-Mar-18 23:50:44

I've got such a vivid image of the type of woman who wears them. grin She's very into homeopathy and crystals.

I like them, very hippy-granola.

Luckingfovely Tue 13-Mar-18 00:33:57

Totally agree.

Raven88 Tue 13-Mar-18 00:35:26

I would buy a couple of them I like to dress unusual sometimes. The red lace ups would be cute with a black skater dress and red lipstick.

CoolCarrie Tue 13-Mar-18 00:36:59

I like the Chinese style

ReggaetonLente Tue 13-Mar-18 00:38:13

Each to their own. Clothes are so personal, I don’t like to be unkind just because they aren’t my thing.

Onceuponatimethen Tue 13-Mar-18 00:49:18

I like some of those!

Ginkypig Tue 13-Mar-18 01:15:05

Enid if you saw me you'd more likely jump to rocker/goth than homeopathy and crystals grin

AntiHop Tue 13-Mar-18 01:17:21

I quite like some of them.

falang Tue 13-Mar-18 01:49:50

Horrid but my feet are constantly painful so like some because they look so comfortable. Would never buy though.

EnidButton Tue 13-Mar-18 02:17:34

Not even a bit of rose quartz Ginky?

grin

I would like the person who likes those shoes but I wouldn't like their shoes.

MrBloomsLeftVeg Tue 13-Mar-18 02:23:00

I'd wear most of them!
My look isn't particularly hippy, more dress as if I was drawn by a small child

lasttimeround Tue 13-Mar-18 08:29:42

Much of the pattern is too much. But I like the plain ones.

specialsubject Tue 13-Mar-18 09:20:58

Nearly as ugly as four inch heels, but not quite.
