What are the biggest footwear mistakes to make? We discuss five serious shoe errors and how to avoid them, from peep-toes worn with stockings to Crocs worn almost anywhere. Keep the fashion police at bay with our top tips

There seems to be a bit of a cult of ugly shoes at the moment: flatforms, deformed-looking Lady Gaga-style shoes, cloven hoof shoes, orthopedic things on the catwalk...one might even hypothesize that ugliness was a quality that designers were deliberately pursuing

We've seen some pretty 'offensive' specimens in our continuing mission to track down the world's most hideous shoes, but none have taken the ugly brief quite so literally as this one. What's worse, not only will their attitude shock you, the price tag might do

ASOS have a great shoe sale on at the moment: it's well worth a look, and gives you 40% off some of our favourite styles like the 'Hysteric' glitter platform. However it's also got some shockers in the mix, and let's just say we can see how this style ended up

Ugly shoes fall into many categories: too clunky, too much embellishment, ugly colour clash, inbalance of materials. This offender falls mainly into that last category: fun fur and electric blue simply don't mix, it seems, and they also suffer from that ridiculous

This week's ugly shoe is an interesting one: we're just not remotely sure where Opening Ceremony's designers were going with it. 'Colour clash' is a key trend for autumn/winter 2012, but why would you seriously put ice grey and orange together? It just doesn't

We're sorry to have to break it to you, but the 'hiking style' flat sandals that made us all recoil in horror at Christopher Kanes's spring/summer show appear to have been somewhat on the money in terms of nailing the season's mood. It's going to be more than

Wedges are a funny beast: they can look great, and there's no doubt that they're on trend at the moment; a godsend for those of us who'll admit to liking a little comfort in our footwear. But they are also disturbingly easy to mess up without a strong design

We've got nothing against flowers on shoes here at Shoewawa: a little corsage here and there can look adorable, and even a full on flower print can work well in the right designer's hands. This style, however, has a pattern that looks like it would be far more

We love leopard print, and we love jewel tones. Put together, however, and the results are not pretty: just check out this bizarre style from Shelly's! There is way too much going on here, and the balance is totally out of whack: heels this chunky need to be

Just looking at these high heeled sandals from Topshop is making my feet ache. Having attempted a similar style at some point in the all-too recent past, I can personally attempt that rope is a very difficult look to pull off in footwear, especially if (as here)

Our eyes, our beautiful eyes! Until now, we're not aware of the ugly stick ever having gone within a mile of a Louboutin shoe, but this might just be one that slipped through the net. It's quite possible that it just needs better lighting, or looks great on the

Feathers on shoes are not a design featutre I've ever really warmed to, I have to admit. Feathers on clothing, yes, in small doses. Feathers on hats, hell yes. But the one place feathers should never be seen is on the feet. Even birds don't have feathers on

Office have named this ankle boot 'Kanned Heat', but to me they scream 'pimp boots'Open up the wardrobe of 60s dork-spy Austin Powers and you'll probably find this style taking pride of place.I'm sure an edgy celeb will pair them with skinny jeans and a vest
