So, here’s a type of shoe that you don’t see every day, because it looks like it’s actually missing a piece there in the middle. See? See how there’s no arch? Well, according to Buzzfeed, the foot is supposed to rest comfortably like a rope bridge from toe to heel, making for a “perfect fit.”
The shoe was designed by Alvaro Gonzalez for Stuart Weitzman. And I’m sure that once it’s on, it looks very interesting, much like Lady Gaga‘s heel-less shoes once looked very interesting. But I can tell you that there is nothing in the world that could make me rock a shoe like this.
First of all, I don’t buy that it’s comfortable, even a little bit. It looks horrifically like your arch would just give way, causing irreparable damage to your bone structure and rendering you flat footed by the age of…say….35. Also, what if you stepped in a puddle or something? It seems like it would feel similar to getting snow down the wrist area of your jacket, where it just kind of rests there and is extremely cold because it’s in such a small, focused area of your body that it reminds you constantly that the rest of your body is nice and warm, while your wrist — or in this case, your arch — is cold and wet.
In other words, no thank you on these shoes. What do you think?
