Ugly Shoe of the Week: Rick Owens' Basket Boots
What is going on with these boots? Rick Owens' triangular 'Basket' boots look a lot like something that Batman might wear, with a flat underside and raised leather 'wings' that conceal the laces. Since when did laces need to be 'concealed'?
It's a shame that there are no model shots showing what these boots look like when they're worn, as it's hard to imagine the effect. I think it might make the wearer look as if they were wearing flared trousers whenever the boots were on.
Then there's the madness of paying over £700 for what is essentially a pair of basketball shoes. Who exactly is this target wearer?
