    You can pack snacks to go! Low-cal whole grain in left foot, nutritious nuts in the right.

  2. Mims Mimsington Says:

    Oh dear!! It’s a cross between ballerinas, platforms and clear-soled drag queen heels…

  3. karla Says:

    I’ll never forget a pair of shoes I saw when I was a kid: Very high clear plastic platforms with goldfish inside the heels.

    I bet you could fit a fish in these, too, and dang if I’m not willing to try it.

  4. deja pseu Says:

    Only one word will suffice: FUGLY!

  5. Texasexile Says:

    Unspeakably ugly. My Prada shod feet are recoiling in horror.
    Manolo, these belong in the Gallery of the Horrors.

  6. Anne Says:

    OMG, those are beyond hideous. I’d better call my therapist before I start having flashbacks to the “Jellies” pumps my mother bought me in high school.

  7. tigg Says:

    Look at the straps! If they’re digging in that much for someone so skinny, what about those of us who tend towards the zaftig?

  8. willow Says:

    I dunno. There’s something pretty and graceful about the lines of the sole (from the side) that I like. I can’t imagine wearing them, though; the material (lucite, is it?) is just weird. They look space-agey to me, or trendy, and not entirely comfortable.

  9. willow Says:

    I just followed the link! OMG – she’s actually partering with Tupperware for this line! LOL. Okay, I’m slow; now I get it!

  10. Wayne Says:

    Soon to be found on eBay within a few months…

  11. Cat Says:

    Wow, those straps are really digging into her feet! Ouch! I am usually a huge fan of the ballet-inspired shoe and/or the mary jane, but these… not so much.

  12. The Bloody Munchkin Says:

    Dude! Jellies! If those ever make a come back (especially in the scary aqua blue color), I’m ending my misery…

  13. CrankyBiscuit Says:

    While we disagreed on whether one should wear white shoes after Labor Day, I think we can all agree that these should be worn NEVER.

  14. jealous Says:

    I am strangely attracted to these.

  15. Lady Gloriana Says:

    tigg – nuff said

  16. catrandom Says:

    Eeek! Ugly, and dangerous-looking too. There doesn’t seem to be anything to keep one from sliding all over the place on those hard plastic soles. A small misstep on some carpeted stairs, and….

    And I wouldn’t let her walk on my hardwood floors, either!

  17. Rebecca Says:

    OMG. These are by far some of the ugliest I’ve seen. :(

  18. Kim Says:

    These shoes they are very…clear. Very clear. And wonderful for the vinaigrette-tossed salads.

  19. zippy Says:

    When the straps and soles are removed, they are really quite nice… lol

  20. a.m. Says:

    I don’t know what you guys are talking about, I LOVE these shoes! I mean, I don’t think I could walk in them, but how important is that really?

  21. desertwind Says:

    Do they burp when you walk?

  22. Texasexile Says:

    I don’t know whether they burp but there is no way that these will keep your feet fresh.

  23. NuggetMaven Says:

    Karla took my words/thoughts, precisely! The movie was “I’m gonna get you sucka.” Good times… goldfish… lol too funny. I thought the same thing.

  25. bigLarry Says:

    There is nothing attractive about these shoes. The tight strap reminds me of my grandmother, who was overweight, and insisted on shoes 2 sizes too small… So, altho feet don’t accumulate much fat, they managed to look bloated in her shoes for the last 15 years of her life. God bless Ethel. Hey! If anyone has a picture of the shoes with LIVE goldfish in the heels, PLEASE contact me! I might even send you $ for a pic. [email protected] ;Thankyou!

    Forget the tupperware…the guy in the background is wearing Birkenstock Ramses…not available in the US, but oh-so-cool!
