A recent thread on the YLF forum labeled the $1,795 designer boots on the left below the “ugliest perversion of fashion ever made”. They certainly aren’t my style, but I can appreciate their edgy, daring, dramatic, gothic and grungy appeal. They look impeccably made, which for the price is the least you should expect.

On the right is what I would call an ugly shoe. Their five and a half inch stiletto heel looks like a weapon. The brand is called “Promiscuous” and this particular style has been labeled “Flirtatious”. It is described as an “overpoweringly sexy platform”. Somehow, I wouldn’t feel particularly alluring if I wore these. Do they scare you too?
