It is just a cheap shoe and I think that Trompe de Monde is stating that with one adjective. When you compare it to a shoe that actually looks nice, i.e. the one in the picture attached, or even the Allen Edmonds Strand which would be in between the two, you then see how the quality and elegance is lacking in the original shoe in question
