marc-jacobs-weird.jpgForgive me for presenting you with an ugger like this so early on in the week, when you've probably barely eased yourself out of slippers and into your flatties just yet. But the alternative wouls be letting a design error like this one pass by without comment, and we couldn't possibly allow that!

Having twigged that the desert boot is a good style to play with at the moment, Marc Jacobs has 'tweaked' the look by adding a heel that owes more to a piano stool than anything you'd normally wear on your feet. The heel in itself is rather interesting - but it doesn't sit right on the chunky platform, which would look equally fab with a similarly chunky heel. Or have I got it all wrong, and am missing the genius of these strangely discordant shoes?

£515 at Colette.
