Riding Bootdals 5

Hey guys, check these out!

Super cute boots, right? Little wedge heels, a Bottega Veneta-esque basket weave along the sides, and the leather’s a great transition color for spring and fall.

You’re probably pretty invested in these boots now, right? These could be the boots you’ve been searching for. You want to see the front of these absolutely adorable boots.

Except, you don’t. Trust me.

Because they’re not boots. They’re a horrifying sandal/boot hybrid, perfect for those of you who have claustrophobic toes and perpetually cold calves, otherwise known as “Sweatyfeetclammycalfitis.”

Jeffrey Campbell’s shoes can be pretty out there, but these are just beyond. How does he think of this stuff? What made him look at a pair of riding boots and think, “Those would make adorable sandals?”

I can only hope that these were originally intended to be boots, but the sketches were sent to the manufacturer before they were completed – like in those Marshalls commercials where everyone in the fashion industry is apparently incapable of ordering the right amount of product.

That’s the explanation I’m going with, because otherwise these are just nonsensical hybrids that exist purely for the sake of creating “edgy” but hideously impractical shoes.

In other words, just your average pair of Jeffrey Campbells.

    My jaw literally dropped when I saw the front. I knew it was going to be bad but… there’s nothing on the top of the foot. And laces up the front. And… I can see Rihanna wearing these.

      Oh wow, I hadn’t even thought of the Rhianna angle, but you’re right. Although, I’m guessing she would modify them to have some insane high heel.

    I like them, they would be cute with a fishtail dress.

    But they look so comfortable. I can imagine these being Kim K’s maternity footwear of choice.

    Over the course of the last week, I’ve run into a series of issues with iOS 8. iOS 8 problems are prevalent amongst iPhone owners and I haven’t been immune to them.
