Would You Wear It? Erdem Floral Print Ankle Boots from Nicholas Kirkwood

Nicholas Kirkwood Erdam Floral-Print Cotton Ankle Boots

Manolo says, here is the cotton, floral-print, ankle boots, the Erdem from Nicholas Kirkwood.

Here is the second angle, showing Lucite floating heel feature/thingy/whatzit.

Erdem Cotton Floral-Print Ankle Boot from Nicholas Kirkwood

On the one of the hands, it is like the modern architectural thought-experiment that has gone awry. (Lucite! Flowers! Block!) On the other of the hands, it is both arresting and fun, which is the difficult combination to manage.

So, dearest internet friend, if the money were not the objection…would you wear it?

    I love the bootie, but not the heel. I completely love the floral thing that’s going on with shoes lately. Lucite heels, I just can’t, no.

    I SO WOULD! Love the heel and the interesting and not too girly floral print. Normally floral prints make me want to vomit but this is just plain gorgeous.

    Floral in a boot is hard to wear, but, YES, most definitely I would wear and rock these boots like crazy!!!

    It is a sculpture, but in my opinion this is a totally unwalkable design. I think it would be very, very difficult for anyone to walk in these. Stomp – up/down, up/down – maybe, but walk through from toe, through arch to heel? I doubt it.

    Love the boot. Hate the heel.

    I would love to see a “build an outfit” challenge with these…

    Love the heel (especially if it were actually a walkable height, maybe 2.5 inches). But I hate the print – it looks like an artist’s palette threw up on it, especially with those big grey splotches. Maybe if it were a more traditional floral.

      Yes, but then I’ve always liked how my palettes looked. Smeary with intriguing flashes of color. These would be right up my alley style-wise, but comfort, I don’t know. Maybe for lounging out at night, if I did that.

    No. I don’t like them.

    Interesting concept from a purely aesthetic stantpoint, but with that heel, not an ice cube’s chance in hell.

    Love the paint, hate the heel, hate the price ($1,595) even more.

  11. Jo August 28, 2012 at 4:31 pm #

    That’s a no from me. They look cheap to my eyes. Fair enough if you likes ‘em tho, just mind your ankles! :)

  12. Amynae August 28, 2012 at 5:38 pm #

    Nope. Would laugh at my friends lovingly and shake my head if they wore them.

    But the pattern on the boot itself is lovely, and would totally rock out on some hi-top Chucks. Now those, you would have to pry off my cold, dead feet.

      I think, with a little experimentation, you might be able to customize your own Chucks to something similar.

    Hideous.

  14. Livia August 28, 2012 at 7:30 pm #

    Money is always the objection, but if they were a gift, I would totally wear them! With great happiness. At every possible occasion.

    What a good idea, Klee! I had almost forgotten that our dear Manolo used to host build-the-outfit contests (and award prizes, for that matter.) This shoe would certainly be an interesting challenge; I’d love to see what people come up with.

    Only if the heels lit up when I took each step.

  17. Jezebella August 29, 2012 at 1:15 pm #

    Ms. ChaCha, you have turned my thinking around on these shoes completely. I would also wear them if they lit up.

    And Amynae, hell to the yes. Those would be some fierce Chucks!!

  18. Rosemary August 29, 2012 at 4:29 pm #

    Love the shoes. Of course I would wear them, as long as: they didn’t kill my feet or my budget. I would prance around like the cat that ate the canary!!

    Much love from England,

    Of course I would wear it. The plexiglass heel is amazing and the Erdem floral print would refresh any outfit… I would wear them with an LBD from day to night.

    If someone gave me those as a gift, I would exchange them for a Roland Mouret dress.
