A conundrum in shoe form

Help me with something, if you please.

Can someone explain these shoes to me? I'm honestly baffled. I'm not sure whether these are boots, pumps, or victims of a vicious shark attack. Is it possible that they are a combination of all three?

What are these pump/boot hybrids called anyway? Poots? The designers at Bronx Shoes seem to be at a loss for a name as well, as they dubbed it simply "H3806." I think I'll just call it "ghastly."

    I would go with the shark attack.

    Looks like a shark attack to me too. HAHA. This is a shoe that you would see in a Gwen Stefani video. It's not for real life.

    It looks to me like some designer on acid is trying to sneak in the dreaded SPATS not so discreetly.

    I'm probably the only one who wouldn't mind a spat revival. At least it would be better than the whole Ugg trend.

    lmao... as soon as I saw it I thought, "Who took a bite out of these poor things!" As soon as you hear a name for these things, pass it on.

    I think these are cute. I'm going to call them D'Orsay Bootlets and I predict they will become a trend for Spring 2006. Unfortunately, I like to minimize my cankles, so I won't be wearing them when they do become the IT item.

    gabsmash- Well, with "Shoe Porn" I would probably get more hits, but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be my target readers. LOL
