    I recently discovered a new brand of shoes to add to my collection, called Zota. Anyone else heard of them? They primarily cater to the current trend of pointed-toe shoes. They have a website, but the majority of styles I've purchased and seen in stores are not shown on the website. Here it is:

    They seem to run $50-150 depending on style and retailer. Based on my experience, the slip-on styles run one size small.

    Ooo lala, looks like real tiger, horsehair, and rainforest scraps. Are the soles made of wood too?

    What bothers me is that there is a whole subculture of people who find these things attractive. The look like painted bricks.

    Is this one a serious request? If so, I can only imagine I'll be lynched by the rest of the members should I post more pictures.

    Well those are the ones I like (should our feet not be destroying the ecosystem, too?) but did anyone take a look at the more plain styles on the Zota webpage? Those are the styles that do not interest me, so I have no idea if they're hot or not.

    Sorry, but many of the shoes on the site look poorly made, plasticy in finish, and unattractive in design and execution. I find the flat wide shape of the toe box particularly unappealing. The more exotic ones in your closet are not better, IMHO.
