How Cute is This Shoe?

Just kidding!

When I clicked to enlarge the picture, just to be sure I wasn’t hallucinating, I was momentarily nauseated. But I like the third bullet point in the description:   “Rat accent.”

    My terrier would have that rat off those ‘shoes’ before you could walk anywhere…….

    I actually think they’re pretty cute – I would totally have worn those when I was 19 or so. I like those little marc jacobs flats with the mouse faces too, though.

    The deadpan “rat accent” though is gold.

  3. I saw these on a lady who was probably in her mid-50s with cool hair and she looked awesome, true story. I’d wear them.

    I love how they describe the rubber as “odorless”, your feet certainly won’t be after pounding the street in them.

    Wellington boots are a fantastic invention. Shoes crafted from the same rubber, not so great. I detest those Westwood/Melissa pixie boots with the three gold orb buttons. They are far more of an abomination than these (even with a rat on them.)

    How truly Revolting. I hate and loathe rats real or plastic.

    I am weeping for the future.

  6. Romeo says:

    Do these come in men’s sizes? Because on my left foot I can only wear open-faced shoes due to a large rat-shaped growth, so with a little modification a pair of these would help me look normal in public.

  7. Sil says:

    If I ever wear rats on my feet, my mother will never talk to me again… and I would never pay 100 of any currency to wear rats. Come on. You get them for free in any city…

    That shoe is awesome.

    I would pay to see Carla Bruni-Sarkowsy
    port that shoe around over here.

    Some took a whole lot of mushrooms
    and came up with that shoe at the
    point of passing out.

    Thank you for letting me know
    that shoe exists in this, our world.

    Willard was a gross movie that does not need to be immortalized on my feet. My cat, however, would groove on these shoes.

  10. Sonia Luna says:

    Who thinks up these things?

  11. Dru says:

    UGH. Is anyone actually misguided enough to pay money for that?

    Re: rodents, Mickey Mouse is good (despite Disney Channel’s other live-action crap). Ditto Marc Jacobs’s mouse flats. But plastic rats on people’s feet… many hallucinogens did it take for the concerned shoe designer to come up with this?

  12. WendyB says:

    Rat accent = ratcent

  13. Ann says:

    There is no reason for that.

  14. Mia says:

    Rat accent should be the phrase (well…sort of) of the year!!!! And those shoes are incredibly BAD.

  15. patni says:

    Love ’em. I would wear them, and then go stamping on the feet of anyone with a marc jacobs mouse shoe. Rats beat mice. THe dead pan “rat accent” is classic.
    Although i re-read the description… They are plastic. a kind of pretty rat infested croc. eew. I don’t wear plastic shoes.

  16. Mark says:

    They look like the kind of trash one would get at a mall store like Hot Topic in somewhere like Tucson or Indianapolis.

  17. Pudfish says:

    Good grief! do they do a cockroach pair too?

  18. Cricket9 says:

    Pudfish, great minds think alike! I would wear them with a roach-patterned dress. Madagascar hissing cockroach, to be precise. Or maybe these ripped and tapped jeans by Margiela – you can see them on “KIngdom of Style”. Then I could go dumpster-diving to find all the marvellous stuff, as directed by frugan life blog. Really, the possibilities are endless…

  19. kate says:

    Clearly, lower-end luxury jelly shoes are not made for anyone who ever lived where there’s real rats. Personally, I find the petty annoyances and disgusting details of rich people even cuter! I’d like some divorce paper-paper crane flowers or some leftover liposuction fat cube beads on my Melissa shoes, please.

  20. hammie says:

    put up a clip of you talking with a “rat accent” either that or buy the shoe, chew the rat off and then put up a clip with you eating the rat. then return it (free postage?) Either works. xx

  21. TheShoeGirl says:

    I’d love to hear what a rat accent sounds like.

  22. Aja says:

    My grandmother hates rats so much, if I wore that shoe she’d be pissed and swear I did it just to scare her. I could just hear her saying “well isn’t that the most horrible thing . . .?”

  23. Rosee says:

    I like them, and I’d wear them. If I could afford them.

  24. theresa says:

    I like them.

  25. TheBadKate says:

    Oh, they’re odorless now? Melissas used to have what was described as a “bubblegum smell” (see this blog post on spotting counterfeits: which, when I encountered a shelf of Melissas in a Toronto shoe store, was more what I’d call “bubblegum via recycled Strawberry Shortcake doll left in a mouldy basement since the 80s” and nearly made me – honestly – throw up.

    I might wear a shoe with a rat on it, though.

  26. lizzifer says:

    Why are these called “Melissa”? Why not, “Oh Rats”, or something stupid like that?

  27. Natty says:

    Wow. Maybe they can launch a nice ballet pump with a slug or a turd or something on it too. Just a thought…

  28. Rob says:

    I could give a rat’s ass about this one…
