    I was just in Neiman Marcus and they had these and several other equally "creative" Prada shoes that look like a cross between classic, mixed with moon shoes, mixed with out-there contemporary. One pair looked like BB black wing tips that had been dipped in bright yellow plastic about half way up.

    I don't know, add a little whipped cream and they would look delicious.

    I might like those Pradas if not for the sole.

    As much as I hate them, pretty smart of Prada. Cole haan nike air shoes have sold well. Celebs and kids wear sneakers with their suits, so this bastardization should appeal to them

    I like the idea and the look.

    People already MTO enough Tricker's in extreme peacocking colors and make-ups and this is not that much different. The only edge part of the shoes is the sole

    If I see someone wearing this, its a tell-tale of how stupid they are.

    Thanks Prada, for helping us quickly label the dumb ones.

    Does this mean Church's manufactures these? Prada bought them out if I recall.

    Correct. However, looking at those shoes, it seems Prada bought out Cole Haan as well.

    Just Google Prada men's shoes 2012. It makes the op pic look tame.

    I have a artsy friend who wears Prada shoes. The real wild stuff. Women approach him all the time to ask him "who makes your shoes"? He sort of looks away, somewhat indifferent and says,"Prada". They all kind of moan with envy. I think he is addicted to the attention they get him.

    If Prada doesn't float your boat then there is always Christian Louboutin.
