HI I'm new here (from the netherlands)
Well these are the shoes that are really hot at the moment in Holland.
They are called tabi shoes or just split toe shoes

The firts ones are from Irregular Choice
The other ones are from Okoloko

And i love them both

What do you think of the split toe shoes and are they also popular in your country/city?

Nike also had a line with the split toe.
One of my design teachers used to wear a cute orange pair.
Not for me though.

No way! i strongly dislike them because they make your feet look distorted lol
I have seen those shoes in Schuh and the toe shape looks funny indeed.

A while ago, I wanted a pair of those split toe nikes... Nike Air Rifts.. like Leyla and Sugo up there ^^^^
I never got them because he made fun of them saying they looked like goat feet.

and yea.. I guess he's kinda right.. they do look like a hoof.

Irregular Choice have so many of these. I like theirs, but probably because they remind me of little hearts.

I actually think they're rather cute. But then, I'm biased towards Irregular Choice...
