I think they're ugly and bulky, and I am disappointed that so many people have taken to them just because of their presence on fashion blogs.
I only saw them on 2 fashion blogs. They gave me a new outlook on the shoes. I never really gave it much thought before, but I have always seen them as a goth trend - the fashion bloggers just shed a new light on them (more fashion than goth). The so many people who might like them now since viewing a fashion blog, probably feel the same way I do. Even then, I agree with John_M.. I doubt they will catch on.
That's exactly how I thought of it. Never say never. The pair I ordered from TUK came today and they are absolutely amazing. They are soo comfortable. I wore them to my last class today and already I've gotten many compliments. currently my favorite pair of shoes by far.
Well... in regards to not being feminine, they are actually more unisex than feminine. And like most femmes tell me when there are shoes that aren't feminine or cute... they (creepers) aren't supposed to be feminine or cute. I'm sure you're not going to see shoes like these on Kate Moss or anybody, or at the most premier fashion shows.
