Perhaps the ugliest thing ever January 14, 2009

Last September, I was on my way to the grocery store, minding my own business as I passed my neighborhood “hipster hangout” corner. (If you don’t know what a Hipster is click here. The Hipster culture is alive and thriving in Philly). I saw three young folks standing outside a cafe, but paid no mind to their juvenile twaddle. As I strode by, my eyes fell upon the ugliest shoes I had ever seen in my life. They were so bad I literally did a double-take.

I had wanted to post a blog entry on these shoes ever since. Yet, I felt as if I couldn’t ever find the words to accurately describe the horrendousness, and needed a photo to accompany. 

Since that day, I have been searching Google Images for pictures of said shoes. I’ve tried every combination of words I thought possible to summon these shoes’ likeness, but I had no avail. This quest created some sort of monster, and now in my downtime I like to type in “ugly shoes” and see what disasters pop up. Today I did just that, and browsed through the pages.

My search has come to an end… I have finally found a nearly identical facsimile:



Are these not some of the ugliest shoes you have ever seen?

I don’t know what it is with fashion this year, but the open toe boot thing needs to go.

And someone should tell fashion designers ankle boots and flip-flops do not make aesthetically pleasing portmanteaus. Apparently, this style is called the Bootie Sandal. I call it Ugly on a Foot.



P.S. If you are looking to kill some time on the internet, try typing “ugly shoes” into Google images. I promise it is a good time. Just beware, for it can be addicting.

    Yes you are right.

    I’m wondering how you wear them.
    What happens when you stand up?
    Footware for the lounging couch potato, I guess.

  3. Perhaps the following links will provide some further insight into the functionality of these shoes, as well as various angles:
