Ugly shoes you love
Does anybody have shoes that you know are objectively ugly but you still love them and think that they are so ugly/crazy/oldfashioned that they actually work? Shoes so wrong that they might be right?
I feel that some of my shoes tend or tended to flirt with that category so i would love to see if anybody has similar "problems". Post pics if you have them.

(i searched for a similar topic but couldnt find any, sorry if a thread like this one already exsists)

I actually found the pic through another fashionspot thread about trends you regret. Mine look like these but they also have red in them. I get why they are so ugly and nobody would want to wear them but I dunno. I feel cool in them.

I know they are dodgy as hell, actually, i know they are wrong but i like to wear them because i feel naughty and kind of rebellious in them. cant help it.

CROCS! especially in the summer/early spring, when everyone is walking around moaning and groaning about the blisters from their favourite pair of sandals/flip-flops, then i just whip on my super bright turquoise crocs and strut around thinking 'haters gonna hate'

A friend of mine has told me that he has seen a girl in crocs who looked sexy.
Don't know if I can believe him.

Some of the shoes I like have the potential of being considered ugly by some, but the looks those people go for basically have nothing to do with what I want to look like.

^ i strongly support your decision to wear confy shoes and not care about what others think ,the discussion and topic however were ment to be about shoes we think work in some weird way and can be esteticaly acceptable and we kind of like them even though we know theyre not conventionaly pretty shoes. Do you think your crocs work if worn the rigt way? If so, please do post a pic

CROCS! i really don't care how many people hate them and go on and on about how they're 'the ugliest shoes on the planet', they're so bloody comfy i'll definitely be the last one laughing as you moan about your painful blisters :p

I see now that the topic name might be misleading, but like i said before, it was meant to be about conventionally ugly shoes that you somehow like aesthetically and you like what they bring in to the outfit, not ugly shoes you love to wear because theyre comfy but you still find them ugly. (I dont resent anybody for wearing crocs and i fully support everybody who decides to wear them but lets not make this in to an I- wear-crocs-confession thread unless you really think you can make them work in an outfit or you really like them aesthetically )

i LOVE the idea of this thread...



i can think of a couple of people who should be posting most of their closet in this thread...
the problem is...they really don't think the shoes are ugly...
even if most other people do...
they are just blinded by the ugly into thinking that they are super cool...
it's so odd...
and no amount of explaining is going to get them to admit that their shoes are just fug...
