I look at these (and think about who they came from, two great companies) and can’t help but think that when the designers were thinking about these, they were either incredibly drunk or just wanted to take the piss (have a joke), big time! The funniest thing is that they were actually being considered, having been made up for the A/W 2010 collaboration between Sperry & Band of Outsiders. Yet, thankfully, someone intelligent put the axe on production, and they never saw the light of day. Nevertheless, I just can’t help but feel that this was just a big joke, because I am quite fond of both of these companies and the majority of shoes that they do, especially when it’s done together, and simply cannot fathom them doing anything this ridiculous on a serious level. I mean, seriously, imagine a grown man walking down the street with these on? It would be just plain wrong, not only for the amount of fur on them, but for the sheer impracticality of them, but I guess that never stops anyone from doing anything, like making mega yachts that are one mile long and cost $2 billion/year just to maintain……what kind of world do we live in?????
