Bad choices

Now, I know that picking on Irregular Choice is kind of like shooting fish in a barrel. And yes, I do realize that the whole point of the company is create quirky and, *ahem*, distinctive shoes.

But sometimes I wonder if their designers have taken a few too many bong hits and drew up some shoes just to see if some misguided soul will buy them. It's entirely possible that they're sketching out a crazy pump with one hand and desperately clenching a fist to their mouth with the other in a futile effort to stifle hysterical laughter.

I mean, really. These shoes look like someone accidentally trod through a vat of Elmer's Glue and then proceeded to trample through the miscellaneous arts and crafts box at their toddler's preschool. And these boots...

Honestly, I don't even know what to say about these. Whatever these guys are smoking seems to be imparing both their jugement and their eyesight.

    but every once in a while they come up with something really cute and creative, you know? or maybe i've become the eclectic cat lady i always knew i could be, and some of their shoes look good to me alone.

    Oh I definitely agree that they do have some really fun styles. It's just that they often take it too far and ruin an otherwise nice pair of shoes with something like, say, lavender maribou.

    What is the deal with all the spat-type shoes? It's horrible! They are like hard, flat leg warmers. God deliver us.
