missoni-boots.jpgThese boots are from Missoni's latest footwear offering: a loud, proud pair of python-embellished creations with a crazy crochet-covered block heel. I think it's fair to say we've never seen anything like it, although I've a feeling I may have done (at the circus).

Missoni has never been a brand to shy away from strong colours, however, and while this is not entirely along their usual design lines, it's still quite in keeping with their commitment to shock and awe. Individual bits of the boot - like the interesting wave pattern on the heel and the woven-in gold strands on the laces are fun in themselves, but does it all hang together?
