A: "Brilliant!"

Haha, funniest today, I've always thought that that is the way hollywood/porn producers build up their movies!
I think those first shoes wouldn't look that awful without the tassels though, quite nice colour.

The thing about the first pair is that they hint at good taste. That makes them all the more perverse.

Question. Does the winner wear these shoes?

This Forum has an extremely knowledgeable and interested group of people concerning shoes.

Has anyone ever seen someone wearing a pair like this ridge-eyeball combo? I have not. But maybe, I don't travel in the right circles or watch the right TV channels.

For real. Has anyone seen someone wearing something like this? And if so, where?

While I've never seen any of these creepy crocodile shoes worn, I would consider buying a pair if I found them somewhere for a couple of dollars or less for wearing to an occasion such as a costume party. I don't hate them, but I can't help but to laugh when I look at them - they're a bit like Versace or clown shoes in that regard.

I have seen brightly colored alligator shoes like these in Harlem. NB: this is not intended as a racist comment, but is a statement of fact from my experience.

I think Steve Harvey is known for wearing them a lot too.

His range of shoes from incredibly ugly to really beautiful is outstanding.
Compare any of the boots with the Kiton Monks, that's like...Flavio Briatore in one of his 9999999999999999$ Billionaire Couture suits changing into something bespoke that would match manton's definition of conservative.
But the equilibrium seems to lie on the BC side in KB's wardrobe....

I hope they use cheap glue so that the upper separates from the sole. Would come in handy for a surprise "gator attack" at parties.

I would have lost it if Trogdor had indignantly replied, "That's my wife/sister/daughter you bastard!"

Kind of reminds me of this skit from the Australian version of Thank God You're Here when an explorer making a slideshow presentation to a London Society of gentlemen responds angrily to a question about a picture of an african tribal woman with an elongated lip. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eIVJ...elated&search=
