When bad things happen to good sneakers

By Mir

Listen, you know that I take my shoes very seriously, and so it is with utter earnestness that I feel the need to tell you that these shoes right here actually make the Baby Jesus cry. (The fact that they come in three different colors has rendered me completely speechless. I am just pointing and gesticulating now.)


  1. But at 45% off, they have to be bought! Kidding. Seriously. Kidding a lot.

  2. My sister-in-law would sooo wear those shoes. Yes, she is scary.

  3. Wow, the camo ones are particularly hideous. They’d make a great gag gift maybe. But only if you really disliked the person.

  4. Ohhh…I have to admit, I know a few people who would wear those shoes. I am pleased to report that I am not one of them.

  5. I must have misread it the first time, because I thought you LIKED these shoes. I opened it and said “Ew” aloud and really wondered about your taste Mir! LOL

  6. Those are scary, but Endless is an amazing shoe-etailer. They’re offering negative $5 OVERNIGHT shipping! I bought four pairs and they were here the very next day. Fantastic. 🙂

  7. Ew, those sure are fugly! 😉

  8. Oh, I get it. Baby Jesus is crying in a bad way, not in a good way.

  9. Baby Jesus is crying. Wow. Just… Wow.

  10. I just threw up a little.

  11. I think my eyes just fell out of my head. How horrible. ::shudders::

  12. How could endless betray us like this? How could they permit themselves to be associated with such fuglocity!?

  13. “I am just pointing and gesticulating now.” BWAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA!!! *wipes tear* Oh. My. I think I may have to use that one.

  14. I think those are Dorothy shoes on crack.

  15. Ew. I love shoes — but are these really shoes? They’re not sneakers. They’re not pumps. They’re — they’re scaring me, that’s what.

  16. I, like Melissa, took a double take at first thinking you liked them. I gotta quit trying to read blogs while holding a baby and settling fights between the 2 and 5 year olds. Oh wait! Then I’d never read blogs!!

  17. Daisy, we could call them “snumps”, but only because “peakers” sounds like some creepy guy looking in windows.

  18. Those are….the skankiest looking shoes I’ve ever seen.

    Nasty. And not in a good way.

  19. Trés ickimeaux.

  20. I couldn’t resist. I emailed this to all my gals. Reading their rsponses and those here have been the highlight of the last 24 hours! I think I dropped a pound or two just from giggling!

  21. My eyes! Ya gotta wonder about the person that designed those. What were they smokin’? yuk…

  22. Those babies wouldn’t even tempt me if I found them at Goodwill for 50 cents!

  23. Actually if you put these with a pair of cute “hippy” type jeans and a summer top, it would be very cute.

  24. Good grief, who designed those shoes? A 14-year-old girl on meth? But, you better believe there are a lot of women out there that think these are fabulous! No accounting for taste.

  25. I’m one of those weird people who think that jeans and heels do NOT mix – kind of like wearing sneakers with a dress – kind of mixing up the purpose. Jeans are for comfort (supposedly) and work… Heels are for going out….hmmm… but in this case mabye the jeans would cover these fugly shoes.
