Blahnik Tonic. Stupid Sandal Alert!

May 27, 2008 • Accessories


I usually love Jil Sander‘s shoes, but I have to say (and I’m sure most podiatrists will agree) this sandal is just really stupid! Ouch, ouch, ouch!

I can’t decide what part of this design would hurt the most…the tiny strap in the front, the "invisible" or "negative" arch support, or the ankle strap? I guess if you could have someone carry you around, you could wear these sandals!

By the way…I didn’t say they aren’t beautiful and sculptural, just that they are stupid!

Get ’em at Barneys. If you dare.
