Prada just seriously surprised me. The label’s rendered me speechless, as a matter of fact. Note: this doesn’t count, because I am typing instead of talking. Honestly, if you were here, you’d see that I am totally unable to say a word out loud. Why? Simply put, it’s because of Prada’s Peep-Toe Platform Clogs ($524.99 at Saks). And oh, hey, P.S., these are also on sale; Saks has them marked down from $750. That is a really big difference.
The name of these shoes so does not give you enough of an idea of what they are. I mean, they’re camouflage, for goodness’ sake! Camouflage. Prada does camouflage. Oh em gee to the nth power.
That’s what first captured my attention. I can’t say it enough. Camouflage! I know military fashion is in right now. Heck, I was just talking about it. But … camouflage. Wow.
The print is actually haircalf, so that’s cool, right? And there is definitely a platform – it’s 2 inches, or 50 millimeters, high. And it needs to be, because otherwise the stacked heel is 6 inches, or 150 millimeters. With the platform, it is comparable to a 4 inch heel instead. The platform itself is wooden and, in my opinion, absolutely gorgeous against the camouflage print. They complement each other beautifully.
The calf hair fur comes from New Zealand.
My question: would you wear camouflage on your feet? I think these are adorable but I can’t help thinking about the real purpose of camouflage, and cannot think of any instance in which I would need to make my feet meld with nature.
