Manolo says, Ayyyy! it is the hot-rodding Prada Tail Fin Wedge sandals! Clearly our muse Miuccia has had the very specific influence: the 1959 Cadillac, with the bullet taillights!
The Apotheosis of Tail Fin!
Manolo loves the shoes!
The Manolo knows Springsteen! Seriously cannot imagine wearing shoes like this, but they are striking. So striking, I can’t tell how I respond to them as shoes, but I do kind of like them as modern sculpture.
I’m with Sherry. One can’t help but stare at them, but I also think of them as something that should be on a pedestal, not on a foot. Sherry also picks the right adjective: They are indeed striking.
I love shoes like you!!
Love this pair – they look so cool! I don’t mind having them and rocking the trotters with a neon color bodycon! ; )
more shoes and outfits at my blog at http://apopofpurple.wordpress.com/ and do feel free to “like” me on facebook too!
If only these shoes had tiny concealed jetpacks, enabling the wearer to cruise along. Maybe a couple of inches off the ground, for extra effect!
I was thinking it would be cool just if little flames would shoot out of the “tail lights” with each step. Like kids’ blinking tennis shoes, only with fire.
I would absolutely wear these shoes.
