NASCAR Does Pucci

Allison by Nascar?  Manolo says, WTF?  Click!

Manolo says, last week the Manolo noted with perplexity the entry of the NASCAR to the ladies designer shoes market.

This week, the Manolo notes with dismay the Allison from NASCAR, the Pucci knock-off so blatant that the Manolo gasped when he saw it.

    Knockoff it is, but it’s horrible. I don’t think for a minute that Pucci would lower itself to that pathetic a level. NASCAR is banking on people’s bad taste here.

    In an alternate nightmarish universe this shoe would be the subject of a pamphlet. But instead of “The Consolation of the Shoes” it would be titled “The Vile Corruption of the Shoes”

    [speechless - not certain if in horror, disgust, both, or what]

    And the seatbelt clip with the checkered flags etched on it is a mess.

    I am a huge fan of all sports–> especially F1 and NASCAR. I would never, in all my days, wear anything as atrocious as the shoes from NASCAR. I’m not a whore. I’d sooner go bare foot in the pit lane than don these vile things. I think that NASCAR (and indeed most sports retailers) are trying to cash in on the quintessential bimbo buying these things to make sports more “female friendly”. What a load of crap. I went round Silverstone (UK F1 Grand Prix) two years ago in a lovely pair of Jimmy Choo’s (nearly broke my neck), but looked much more sophisticated than 99.9% of the general public. Manolo, you should design shoes for these people–> no doubt they’d be beautiful and not at all “red neck”. Excuse my lack of political correctness.

    Ugh, no one with any taste would be fooled. Those of the “red necks are welcome to them!

    Would Pucci use that style of heel with that shoe? I like to think “no”, Pucci would not combine the fabric with a pseudo-cowboy heel.

    How many NASCAR fans will even recognize this as a Pucci knock-off?

    Those are ugly as sin.

    It is funny, before I saw the text I thought “Those are really the ugliest Pucci shoes I have seen.” and I was surprised, but no more! It makes sense now. The colors are far too muddy to look as cheery as the bright Pucci palette.

    Those shoes hurt my feelings.

    I feel vaguely ill- I must recline on the chaise for an hour or two to regain my composure..

    As a fan of NASCAR I feel like I should apologize for the entire ladies shoe debacle.

    No, wait … you have to go to Zappos and look at ALL of the NASCAR shoes. In addition to these hideous pumps, there are PLATFORM fake Puccis! They are so grotesque, you can’t help but look!

    I don’t have a problem with NASCAR, but I do have a problem with these shoes. Them’s some seriously ugly hooker shoes.

    They’re dreadful. They are an abomination. Those shoes must be stopped (not to mention the people who even thought of NASCAR shoes for women).

    Can we rename? To just SCAR? As in SCARred for life?

    omg, did you see the teal, mustard, black and CLEAR Angie boot!?!?

    And if the beanie-weenies you made in your Dale Earnhardt Crock Pot spill onto the shoe, it will wipe clean!
