These ridiculous ankle boots, made up of hundreds of conjoined, flat plastic discs, were created by Italian architect Gaetano Pesce for Brazilian brand, Melissa.
Now, I don't know what kind of crack Gaetano and Melissa were smoking when they came up with this idea, but I think I know which movie was playing in the background during the pipe-hitting/brainstorming session...
Can't say I really blame them.
I mean, I know that I always enjoy watching a heart-warming family film during my crack-sessions, due to the fact that is seems to ease my conscience, in a stupid, "moral balancing act" kinda way...
(... Jokes. Crack is wack. The sky is blue...)
Seriously though, all double-you-tee-effery aside, I must withhold moral judgment here, because these shiny, plastic babies really are pretty neat:
Plus, there's the additional, interactive bonus of being able to simply snip off the discs that line the edges of the shoe, effectively creating your own, customized piece of footwear!
Sure, you could argue that they're better left unisex, but I mean, really:
The guy who wears these?
Is a guy who wouldn't mind a little high heel action!
