The Daily Kick: A Word from Plumcake

Filed under: Shoes — Miss Plumcake @ 7:00 am

Gold Givenchy Sandals



  1. Mark my words. You will see someone pair this with either a jumpsuit or harem pants.

  2. Methinks someone is chasing the ruble? Oh Givenchy, how the mighty have fallen.

  3. Is someone going to a Halloween party as Prometheus?

  4. ChloeMirielle – Agreed, and they probably will have escaped from Area 51. Honestly, are those things even wearable by human feet?

  5. When I first looked at that picture I assumed they were cheapy shoes you could buy as part of your video vixen Halloween costume. No, those are serious money. Who?? Why??

  6. ChloeMireille, I wouldn’t be surprised in the least. In fact, I’ll raise you and say they’ll show up on a harem jumpsuit.

    Evie, I think you’re right. It’s a damn shame what happened to Givenchy; it’s been a hot mess for years. Hubert is turning in his well-tailored grave.

    Jojokaffe –more like “Ho”metheus

    Catherine, I’m sure they’re beautifully made, but that doesn’t mean they’re not uggo in extremis.

  7. Definitely aiming for the Russian Hoochie-Mamma on her shopping excursion to Paris! Extra points for matching it to lame’ capri leggings and a leopard print chiffon top!

  8. I have small feet, and I still think I’d look like a Clydesdale in those.

  9. Susan, one of the Russian professors at my college actually *owned* that outfit. Swear.

    She also painted her purse dog’s nails frosty pink and dressed it in a matching leather bomber jacket. Ah, memories…

  10. Ugh. I can think of so many other things to do with $950. Those are just… yuck.

  11. Beyond the yuck factor (which itself is beyond words), these are impossible to walk in or even stand in. Where do your toes rest? How do you stand in shoes whose soles have no horizontal part? And why would you pay $950 for such horrors?
