    Good news for all you (two or three) lovers of spade soles, welts that run like boardwalks and that all-over ‘gunboat’ look (let’s change that to ‘air carrier’), Prada has answered your prayers in the current autumn/winter collection:

    I saw those in the window on 57th the other day.

    They did make me stop dead in my tracks.

    It's a shame because spade soles can look really good if they're done well. These most certainly are not done well.

    I actually felt those same shoes in the store.

    Keep reminding me of rubber galoshes (Swims) being fitted over a pair of oxford.

    I kept trying to peel those red bottom off.

    I saw them some times ago on NM website as pre-order. I think a bit(way) over the top.
    I quite like the look of this one ….. But can’t see myself ever wearing it.

    What is it with fashion brands and toe spring? All the shoes look like the have been worn hard and left without shoe trees. Those toe tips bulge up like an old clown's galosh.

    It really does look like someone put some swims on a pair of isshi's spade soles.

    At least passers-by had something handy with which to dig your grave. [​IMG]
