Whisky Tango Foxtrot?

Okay campers, let’s play a little game.

This is the >Best of All pump from Irregular Choice:

I’m going to need to know what situation YOU would choose in order for these uh, interesting, kicks to be appropriate.
Put it in the comments. I’ll select my favorite next week. The winner earns my praise, adulation and the right to NEVER EVER have to wear these lurex assaults on all things good, tasteful and true.


  1. I actually think I’d just wear those on a normal day to the office, with black slacks, a matching purple sweater, and my peacock feather headband. Those are awesome looking shoes! I’m not one to drool ove shoes, but I’m drooling over these.

  2. Clueless tribute performance.

    Comment by Leah — December 16, 2011 @ 2:59 pm

  3. A costume party where I’m going as a Bowie groupie from 1974.

  4. These shoes would be perfect for a party at Sir Elton John’s house. He would then find them so fabulous, he would invite me to sing with him.

  5. Why, to go with this outfit, of course:

    It’s all part of the theme, see?

  6. I am a late 30’s corporate gothy type with a navy blue bob. I would wear these with a chic black dress to our company holiday party! I think they would be appropriate for a situation where wearing the holiday decorations is likely…

  7. Jennifer K took my response. These are so drool worthy that I’d wear them to the grocery store and laundromat as well as a night at the opera.

  8. There’s only one time and place you could get away with a shoe like that, and that is Mardi Gras. It’s even got the purple, green, and gold already.

    Comment by Gina — December 16, 2011 @ 3:10 pm

  9. With my best chiton, to the consecration of the new temple to Hera.

    Comment by TeleriB — December 16, 2011 @ 3:10 pm

  10. I just delivered a lecture on peacock imagery in the decorative arts last month. Those would have been perfect, and by “perfect,” I mean HAHAHAHAHAHA ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

    Comment by harri p. — December 16, 2011 @ 3:11 pm

  11. “All right, Agent 009, we’re sending you back in time to 1974, where you’ll be undercover as a stripper drag queen in Haight-Ashbury.”

  12. Evil supervillain is holding my cat hostage in his hollow-volcano lair, demands that I appear in public in these or he will vaporize the shoe floor at Barneys. I slip them on and stroll through Saint Hippolyta’s home for the completely blind, then burn them and sterilize everything they touched with a 20% bleach solution, just to be sure.

  13. I’d create a burlesque routine around those shoes – something like the Plump Peacock? Obviously there would be disco involved and lots and lots of peacock feathers.

    Comment by Melissa — December 16, 2011 @ 3:32 pm

  14. They would have been perfect for the Mummers parade…

    Comment by Kimks — December 16, 2011 @ 3:33 pm

  15. the Zookeeper’s Disco Ball, of course.

    Comment by rebecca — December 16, 2011 @ 4:00 pm

  16. It’s a trick question. There is literally no time or place, real or fantasy, in which these are acceptable.

    Comment by Rachel — December 16, 2011 @ 4:18 pm

  17. Annnd Gina took my answer. Mardi Gras party attender (or float rider).

    Comment by ChurchMom — December 16, 2011 @ 4:36 pm

  18. I’m going with the Royal Ornithological Society’s fundraiser to support the opening of the latest exhibit (Feathers in Fashion), for which party the theme is Disco Masquerade. Dancing queen…! Those shoes are just the beginning!

    Comment by Rebekka — December 16, 2011 @ 6:01 pm

  19. Two options: 1. Special Guest Judge on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” because that’s the only place fab-u-lous enough for them or 2. They would have been awesome for my Lady Miss Kier Hallowe’en costume of a few years ago! Note: actual Lady in the pic)

    Comment by Alynda — December 16, 2011 @ 7:17 pm

  20. If they come in a big enough size, as part of one’s Huggy Bear Halloween costume. (Original Starsky and Hutch reference for the win!)

    Comment by Wendy — December 16, 2011 @ 8:29 pm

  21. Elton John concert at Ceasar’s Palace in Vegas.

    Comment by Nichole — December 16, 2011 @ 8:42 pm

  22. I’d wear them to kick a Hunts Point procurer right in the kiwis, as a form of rough, retro justice.

    Comment by Camo — December 16, 2011 @ 9:14 pm

  23. While deflowering a drag queen……

    Comment by Thea — December 16, 2011 @ 11:31 pm

  24. When doing my Lady GaGa imitation.

    Comment by Michelle Evans — December 17, 2011 @ 12:51 am

  25. The only appropriate time to wear those shoes is to a 60s/70s theme party during which you’ll be tripping so hard you won’t even notice the loudness of your shoes.

    Comment by Foreveropera — December 17, 2011 @ 12:53 am

  26. When I need to keep my lady-pimp hand strong?

    Comment by evilsciencechick — December 17, 2011 @ 2:02 am

  27. I think these spectacular shoes are enough in and of themselves and should be worn with absolutely nothing at all, au naturale, in the buff, bare-ass naked if you will!

    Comment by Sally — December 17, 2011 @ 2:29 am

  28. Anywhere are badly styled, puffed up and talentless starlet would be paid to put on a beige patent leather “go with everything, look like a lemming” Louboutin pump.

    Comment by ChaChaHeels — December 17, 2011 @ 5:36 am

  29. Obviously, they are what I will wear to my interview to join the Space Vixens (, given that I will not have yet earned my Glitter Boots. Knowing that intergalactic awesomeness simply CANNOT be achieved without an enormous platform, some chunky heels and the ability to blind my opponents from a distance with shine, I will slip those puppies on my feet, revealing to my interviewer at the critical moment that the peacock feathers can also tickle confessions out of the most hardened of criminals. The rookie Space Vixen slot will be mine, and these will be retired to my under-red-satin-cover work.

  30. Why a funeral for a drag queen of course.

    Mind you, they might be a little tame for that…

    Comment by danielle — December 17, 2011 @ 7:35 am

  31. When planning a tawdry hook-up with a very very tall (and probably sight impaired)Pavophile.

    Comment by Madame Suggia — December 17, 2011 @ 9:52 am

  32. As I danced down the woodland paths as an exotic fairy at a rennisance festival.

    Comment by Lynn — December 17, 2011 @ 9:59 am

  33. My brief stint as Madam of a muppet brothel.Our slogan was “It’s not easy having blue…well you get the idea.”

    Comment by Madea — December 17, 2011 @ 2:34 pm

  34. As a guest at Kim Kardashian’s next wedding.

    Comment by SusanC — December 17, 2011 @ 4:20 pm

  35. SusanC FTW!

    Comment by Madame Suggia — December 17, 2011 @ 7:34 pm

  36. My brother-in-laws funeral – paired with a very. red. dress.

    Comment by Melissa — December 17, 2011 @ 11:50 pm

  37. They would be perfect for the next Guy Pierce and Hugo Weaving invite me to cross the Australian Desert in a big pink bus.

    Comment by bushpiglet — December 18, 2011 @ 11:20 am

  38. I could use some bookends…

    Comment by dcsurfergirl — December 19, 2011 @ 12:18 pm

  39. Rio carnival! Me on a float sambaing, wildly in a tiny bikini and a peacock feathered headdress while buff, oiled young men in peacock-feathered thongs gyrate wildly in time. The shoes will fit in quite nicely.

    Comment by retna — December 21, 2011 @ 11:57 pm

  40. May I just say that I love the enameled pin.
    Where to wear — New Orleans and Montrose, you would be the toast of Mardi Gras and whatever has replaced “disco Krogers” in Montrose.

    Comment by Susan — December 22, 2011 @ 10:08 am

  41. An intimate lunch at Paisley Park with (The Artist Formerly Known As) Prince. ‘Cause nothing spices up a Minnesota winter like peacock feathers, don’cha know? ;)

    Comment by lmfny — December 23, 2011 @ 1:49 am

  42. I would wear them on SOOOOUUUULLLL TRAIN!

    Comment by dcsurfergirl — December 27, 2011 @ 2:38 am

  43. I would totally rock these! The first place that popped in my head was to wear them on my weekly jaunt down to the Art Museum. Might as well look at art while wearing some :)
