Ugly Shoe of the Week: Chie Mihara
What's going on here? The sales blurb describes these shoes as 'very unusual' which to me smacks of someone desperately trying to come up with a description that doesn't include the words 'clodhopping' or 'dreary'. Juxtaposing materials can make for great footwear, but I'm not a fan of leather and suede in close proximity like this. If it was a stretchy fabric (as I'd initially thought) then I can see how you could create a shapely and practical shoe, but the combination here isn't doing it for me.
However, if you are someone who's 'acquired' the taste for styles like these, you can bag yourself a pair at Farfetch for £235.
