Is This a Tribute?

This typically ugly “hiker wedge bootie” by Jeffrey Campbell is called Dammit. I have to wonder if it’s their way of rewarding me for tirelessly spreading the joy of the Jeffrey Campbell aesthetic around the world.

However! If   this piece of shit is a tribute to Sister Wolf, I reject it, with all due appreciation.

They can do much, much better, as we know all too well. For example:

Dammit is right! It’s like they didn’t even try!

    was a woman 30 years ago hanging around bloomingdales who all day screamed ‘cerebral palsy, cerebral palsy’. she had shoes just like these.

    i kinda like those and kinda hate them. i don’t know how the fuck i’d walk around in them all day and NOT break my damn ankles.

  3. Hammie says:

    What do call those people who dress up as animal mascots and have sex with other animal mascots? These shoes are for them.

    Hideous, all of them.

    Good luck with hiking wearing these. Jeffrey Campbell and LF (whoever/whatever it is) should try for a few hours, preferably in a hilly terrain.
    Ugly beyond words!

    i can sort of handle the ones they named after you (i think they named it after you.) but that cow-cowboy-wedge-peep toed, oh god why peep toe-decoratively stitched travesty is doing damage to my throat. because i can’t scream and laugh at the same time.
    even when i come across a really nice pair of jeffrey campbell shoes i can’t bring myself to buy them because of your posts. i want to vote with my dollar. i won’t support design like this. occupy jeffrey campbell.

    Dear Sister,
    I humbly beg to differ.
    The second selection is NOT much better, no matter how you look at it.
    They are all hideous and totally unflattering to the female (or male) body.
    No correspondence will be entered into!

  8. Sister Wolf says:

    kate – Occupy Jeffrey Campbell. You have my vote for propaganda minister. Genius.

    Andra – By better, I mean More Repulsive! That is the JC aesthetic. The Jackson Pollock-looking shoe is a masterpiece.

  9. Sister Wolf says:

    Hammie – Plushies and Furries, and don’t pretend you haven’t been to all the conventions.

  10. sulky kitten says:

    If this is their “Hiker” I’d hate to see their version of “Orthopedic”. Or does it come with leg braces? Now I’m fucking mad!

  11. Ann says:

    That shoe is SO a tribute. We need to draft a letter from your attorneys and demand royalties from the sales of those bad boys.

  12. andrea says:

    Hahahahaha- littlebadwolf! I remember the cerebral palsy lady with the shoes in front of Bloomingdales 30 years ago! When I saw those Acne platform ankle boots from a couple of years ago, they reminded me of her! These are the same. I was hysterical when i read your comment!

    I used to work at a costume shop that rented a lot of costumes out to furry conventions. There are some ugly ugly stories. I am really glad i did not have any thing to do with rental costumes or laundry.

    Urgh. My eyeeeees.

  15. CR says:

    Sister, I have a question. Am I still allowed to make a comment about Jane or are those days long gone? I didn’t want to bring something up if you’re over it but I’m dying to share. And yes, those shoes are totally a tribute. The spelling is the key!

  16. Sister Wolf says:

    CR – OF course, please share with the whole class!

    littlebadwolf and andrea – I’m so jealous. Are there photos of this special lady??

  17. Marky says:

    More proof that Sister Wolf is one of the main players in the world of fashion. Tavi who?

  18. Aja says:

    I really REALLY hope that’s for you. xoxo.
