Manolo says, adding the whimsical numbers to the ugly shoes does not make them pretty.

    This shoe, it appears to have been sculpted from the remains of the Wellington boot.

  2. Kourtney Says:

    I once saw an incredibly-ugly-yet-somewhat-charming rooster thong that was done by campers. Sadly, these completely lack the charm….

  3. gidget bananas Says:

    Oh lord, those shoes are enough to make an entire generation of women math-adverse.

  4. Martha Says:

    If only they’d stuck a “pi” symbol on the toe, it would have been fetching…

  5. Miss China Paws Says:

    The things humans put on their feet.
    We cats are so much more sophisticated.

  6. tiptoe Says:

    The Green/Yellow are $151.99, but the Brown/Pink are only $99.98. A bargain!


  7. Lori Says:

    The five is on the pair of hideous pink tennis shoes my father bought for me around 1982. They were so ugly I changed out of them as soon as I got to school. Fifty-year-old men shouldn’t shop for teenage girls.

    This was exactly my first though. Rubber rain pumps. Perhaps they were invented by the same person that thought up the high heeled sneaker. Save me!! =shudder=

  9. e Says:

    Indeed it doesn’t. The 5 was so traumatized by being part of that ghastly concoction that it ran away. That’s my theory, anyway.

  10. Anonymous Says:

    Maybe for Sesame Street…. which number is missing kids?

  11. deja pseu Says:

    Damn, those are ugly. Even a dog wouldn’t chew those unless you smeared bacon fat all over ’em.

  12. The Jen Says:

    Hasselhoff quit drinking?

  13. Lela Says:

    There was an 18 wheeler truck on jack lifts, wonder where his tires went???

  14. Phyllis Says:

    Is the “5”…maybe represented by the toes of the wearer? Still a wierd shoe though.

  15. Jennifer Says:

    uhck, $151! Those shoes are aweful looking.

  16. Solly Says:

    The shoes they are to wear while completing the sudoku.

  17. Anonymous Says:

    More importantly, where’s the fourth?

  18. Dora Long Says:

    Could the lawyer of the Manolo not perhaps file an injunction against this horror on the basis of grave mortal offense to the general public?

  19. debutaunt Says:

    I truly believe these shoes are instant birth control.

    *off to tell my OBGYN*

  20. miss tango Says:

    What is this?? Prisoner Numbers for women serving time for Fashion Crimes?

  21. Martha Says:

    I REALLY like these shoes… where can I get a pair?
