Extra long shoes, good or bad?

ShinyMedia Footwear 4 Comments


I don’t understand it myself but ultra long shoes seem to be all the rage at the moment. I hate them, I think they look awful, kind of like the men’s equivalent of the ultra pointed heels that were around for women a couple of years ago. I much prefer the round toed lace-ups I wrote about a couple of days ago. Tell us what you think and leave comments, full product links after the jump.

  • Hmm… no. They’re not good are they? Unless you have weirdly long toes, perhaps…

  • Winklepickers are pretty cool (anything worn by Noel Fielding/Vince Noir has to be) but is that the same thing as a shoe that’s just really long…?!

  • Anything clothes-wise that is ordinarily used as a comedy prop is not a good idea.

    Ugh no, I can’t stand Camden poseurs who wear these with skinny black jeans, it looks so bad. Not a good look, lads!
