    Over $1300 of the American dollars!!! Only the person with the more money than the brains would spend so much on shoes that look like the ugly stepchild of the Payless!

    Laugh at the price all you like, but it costs bucketloads of money to cultivate barnacles on a high heel.

    I think they’re perfect! If you are an over-bleached, over-tanned, 50-something who does nothing but spend your husband’s money on “self-improvement” and proposition cabana boys…

    Wow. I think this is the first pair of shoes I’ve ever seen that require you to get a bad boob job and a spray-on tan before wearing. Perhaps Zappos verifies that before mailing these out…

    hahahaha! all these comment are too clever. Will not the stocky heel cause the calf muscle to roll up into a tight little ball under the stockings? This happens to me & I detest it.

    Give me some play-dough & I will do much the same thing for $100 & an espresso martini..

    Where’s my Bedazzler?

    I think I can accomplish the same thing with the ultimate trashy device – the Bedazzler

    I would never wear anything like this, but I must admit that they probably look better when worn than they do in this photo. With feet inside them, the black spotty part disappears, and that instantly makes them far less grotesque. There’s something so achingly appealing about that shade of cyan. If only the heel were less lumpy bumpy. . .

    manolo has captured a moment before it has been erased from the memory of the zappos — oh, never mind.

    your link, it has shifted, but the shoes they are still in the gallery of the cavalli, which contains several other frightening looks. quite bristly, some of them. or tufty. I cannot quite bring myself to look long enough.
