  • Is it a shoe?
  • If not, what is it?

Ready, let’s play!

    Great big licorice allsort. Which I lurve. (the candy, not these. Unless they are candy.)

    It’s a shoe! Or two shoes. Heinous ones.

    Rocking shoe, not walking shoe.

    Dadaist sculture?

    Based on the appearance of wood grain on the inside, I’m going to go with a poorly designed art deco salad bowl.

    Clearly this is the wee boat that the Owl and the Pussycat rowed out to sea!

    Yes. It’s a shoe. Only Lady Gaga would wear it though.

    I think technically there are TWO shoes, so the answer to “Is it A shoe?” would be no.

    At least, there are two of whatever they are. I have been rereading Sir Arthur Conan Doyle so I’ll go with the place to store your pipe tobacco. Though those don’t really look like Persian slippers either.

    Don’t be ridiculous, no shoe designer in their right mind would come up with that.

    Would they?

    No, it’s a rocking cradle for tiny gnome babies.

    It’s a bobsled for the team from Brunei.

    Cat toy.

    It is a shoe, but one only a Killer Klown would wear. (The K, as I was recently informed, indicates extra evil.)

    FUGLY shoe.

    Plummy–please take up the cause of bringing back the Louis heel please.

    It’s a shoe all right. I’m trying to figure out if it’s a Robert Clergerie shoe (cause he does those kinds of wedge soled shoes) paying a weird homage to an early Ferragamo sandal made during the fascist era–and if that’s supposed to have any relevance to the political situation today.

    But I wouldn’t wear ’em.

    It’s a shoe encased in new tri-color carbonite, for all your long-haul preservation needs!

    Worried that the dodgy smuggler sort of moving company you’ve hired won’t take adequate care of your expensive shoe collection? Dip them in our patent-pending tri-color carbonite to fully wrap them in a sturdy protective shell that can survive bangs, scratches, and the freezing vacuum of space.

    Call today!

    It’s a penny-farthing boat.

    It is a sculpture of a bunch of bananas, by Picasso.

    Actually…I think they’re kind of…nifty. I’m sure I would break my ankles in them but I could fantasize about wearing them.

    An ottoman, in the waiting area of the snobby hair salon my Mom used to frequent in the 60s.
