A sharp-eyed reader sent me to this shoe, which looks like it’s trying to run away.
Run, Gucci goat-hair slipper, run as fast as you can!
You know what, the poor thing is dead. Too late.
[These} slippers are one of the most talked-about designs from Alessandro Michele’s debut runway collection. They’re finished with the label’s signature gold horsebit, nestled in the floor-sweeping honey-colored strands that also line the shoe.
The floor-sweeping honey-colored strands of a dead goat is what I see here but let’s try another view.
Now, with feet inside, you can see how these little critters will keep you company all day long, with floaty dresses as well as casual jeans, according to the editor’s styling tips. If they start to get smelly, just blame the goats. If your friends and associates don’t gasp in envy at your edgy taxidermy-driven style, you can show them your receipt for $15,000 and say. “Now what, bitch?”
Sadly, that figure is Hong Kong dollars, so in fact the price is a bargain at only around $1,900 USD.
In France or Russia, these shoes might have sparked a revolution. Here in the US, we just roll our eyes and go off to bed with murder in our hearts.
