    HI I'm new here (from the netherlands) :flower:
    Well these are the shoes that are really hot at the moment in Holland.
    They are called tabi shoes :ninja: 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.

    they're interesting, I guess? a little morbid for me... are they supposed to be more comfortable?

    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.

    There was an AMAZING pair of tabi boots on the Office website this summer. Black canvas, knee-high, with a design on the side of the calf reminiscent of Hokusai's "The Great Wave at Kanagawa." They were so wonderful. I wish I had them. :cry:

    The shoes that purple posted looked quite cute because the top looked like the top part of a heart and with the red and ribbon it ties it together quite well. Pun not intended of course. But the rest look a little camel-lish.

    The remind me of Johnny The Homocidal Maniac's cloven-hoof devil boots. Jhonen Vazquez was way ahead of his time.
