Designer Dis: Manolo, What the Eff?

Just because SJP & Co. wear Manolos does not mean that any one in their RIGHT MIND would even consider wearing something called a "Sneaker Slingback."

This abomination is $785.  It is described lovingly in the Neiman catalogue as a "blue denim and white leather lace-up pump."

Let's just stop right there and discuss what's wrong with this statement, mmmkay?  Denim belongs nowhere NEAR any shoe over $30.  And a lace-up pump?  Are you FREAKING KIDDING ME?! And any shoe whose description- and exact likeness- I could just as easily find at Payless isn't getting more than $24.99 from me.  And these wouldn't get a dime- to say they are hideous would be such a gross understatement and I don't want to insult you.

Let's just say that Manolo is going to have to do something pretty damn spectacular to win me back. 

(Thanks, SNevins, for smuggling me the Neiman catalogue and pointing out this revolting excuse for a shoe.)
