    I have just had a post from the ' ABC Luxe ' website , to the effect that orthopaedic mules or sandals are going to be BIG BIG BIG this year , as Karl Lagerfeld is doing them for CHANEL , and CELINE has collaborated with SCHOLL on a similar style . :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Is this a continuation of the BIRKENSTOCK phenomenon of last summer ? ;) ;) ;)

    KIT :innocent:

    I saw the Celine one's at the store, and the first thing I said to my mom was "those look like Dr Scholl's"!! I just thought they were look-alikes, didn't know they were actual collaborations?

    Paul Frank sholls were HUGE last summer,
    so i just see this as a continuation, why not?
    they can look cute when worn in the right way (jeans etc)

    i will not wear them myself,
    sticking with fresh coloured french canvas espandilles,
    flat, heels, with and without ribbons (and edition keds/lacoste)

    i swore i would never wear a pair of birks, but when i ggot my t-straps last year...i have to say...they are adorable with a miniskirt...sort of like an alternative to a slouchy boot...a bit heavier than a thin soled sandal when you need that extra something...plus they are great when you have a day full of running around in the city... :ninja: :innocent:

    the CELINE sholls are really ugly. much thicker than the actual classic sholl and the buckle is so tacky on it.

    i like labels like sholl and birks to stay original with NO collaborating ;)

    Um...in the words of Summer from The OC:

    "Ew."

    I saw somewhere that moccasins are supposed to really big this year too. Again I shall say:

    "Ew."

    I'll stick to my flip flops and heels.

    I remember back in like 1997 when those Dr. Scholl's ones were all the rage and you could get irridescent ones :sick:.

    I wouldn't and couldn't wear them.

    No backless shoes.

    Wagh.

    hahaha..i remember in 1977 when they first came out and my mom had a pair... :innocent: around the same time as clogs and peasant/hippie style...and it's coming around again...

    i think they're cute, but i don't find them comfortable at all... :shock:

    just to add-i agree with leyla about the origins of the brand...
    to me, buying a designer version of scholl's or birks is like buying a knock-off...i'll stick with the original please... :flower:
