controversial Balenciaga shoes

I was utterly speechless when I saw this pair sandals by (who else?) Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga. What’s he thinking? It’s either love it or hate it but you can hardly wear it out unlike any other sandals. It reminds me of Lego and bicycles? The price tag: a whooping $4175 but if you are a Balenciaga fan and wanted to get this pair sandals, be prepared to shop for a new range of clothes to match with it. On the other hand, details-wise, you’ve got to praise Ghesquiere’s creativity and innovations because I guess only him will think of designing something that looks like it belongs to outerspace (last season’s sandals actually resembled a tank). Nice work though, the sandals have definitely made another historical statement for this label.

    i love these shoes! they remind me more of a crayola box barfing on a snowboarding boot, then legos. And I use the term ‘barfing’ with strange affection.
    The lust for these also rivals iheartfashion’s. Now, if I had $4000…
