Stella McCartney Mutant Birken-Heels Monster

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, perhaps it is time for the Manolo to revive the Gallery of the Horrors

These are not just the simple Birkenstocks-which-have-mated-with-stilettos-thus-violating-all-that-is-holy , but rather the pleather Birkenstocks-meets-the-stilettos, and not just made-from-faux-leather Birken-stilettos, but also the $625 fake leather, mutant Birken-heels.

Meanwhile, back on planet Earth, $625 American dollars can get you these….

Jimmy Choo Suave Satin Sandals

The Jimmy Choo Suave Satin Sandals, with almost enough change left over to buy these…

Of the course, the Manolo would never object to paying this much for beautiful shoes. But for ugly shoes which pay homage to the crunchy granola shoes for pretentious peasants, and which are made of petroleum by-products? Never!

    Saw these on net-a-porter a few days ago and just about had a heart attack!




  2. Sarah Says:

    I was going to say the birken-stiletto was someone’s idea of a joke, but it appears that, sadly, they are all too serious. What is this world coming to??




  3. Christine Says:

    Oh yes, straight to the Gallery of the Horrors!




  4. Vicki Says:

    Quel horror! Looks like a Dr. Scholl-Moreau hybrid.




  5. Jenne Says:

    I hate to say it, but my general experience has been Stella McCartney=tacky. Remember the Oscar dress she designed for Kate Hudson?

    Yes to the Gallery of Horrors with them!




  7. texasexile Says:

    Is there a basement in the Gallery of Horrors? If so, these belong there.




  8. Letizia Sung Says:

    Dios mio! Off with their heads! I mean heals.




  9. Lisa Says:

    GAAAAHHH!!!

    The Rainebeaux, she weeps profusely…and may need the therapy (regular and retail)!

    Uh, add my vote for Gallery of the Horrors. *goes off to look at bunnies*




  11. daisyj Says:

    I am trying, and failing, to figure out where one might be expected to wear these. A black-tie sit-in? The gala opening of a new Whole Foods? To your second job as Gaia “Hot Mama” Earth, the eco-friendly stripper?




  12. LaHolandaisa Says:

    Sheeeshhh some sizes have sold out… what a crazy world!




  13. ChaChaHeels Says:

    Shut up, Stella McCartney.




  14. Miss Sixty Spring Summer Says:

    So so wrong. 625 dollars for this type of stuff?
