Wear or Beware? Aquatic Bondage Booties by Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen's Aquatic Fantasy Booties


Often, fashion has much to do with fantasy and fetishes (especially in the realm of footwear). Well, Alexander McQueen's most recent showing during Paris Fashion Week seems to indicate lots of both, with a heaping dose of conceptualization. These booties seem inspired by a combination of bondage footwear (those shoes that put the foot at almost a 90 degree angle), the sea and... well... eggs (snakes and fish both hatch from them, you know). We're feeling the varied snake prints, though. So, what do you think? If you saw someone walking down the street in them would you give them a big up, or a Glamour black bar? Haute stuff or hot mess?

Those are very fetishy, but I kinda like them!! They would be hotter without that enormous platform though but totally unwearable!

I think I'd actually prefer them without that rounded mound on the bridge of the foot.
