So I've been trying to be more fashion forward with my clothes lately, mismatching styles and trends and flipping things on their head. Working out well, but I was yet to take it to my shoe collection. Then I saw these on wheredidyougetthat blog and I really loved them:

With the metal mirror they make a really interesting shape, a cutout. Like here: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4060/4396418058_fb7b6b5f3c_o.jpg
At first I couldn't figure them out, and then I realized the metal acted like a mirror.

I personally think that shoes can make or break the feel of an outfit, so I felt this pair would send quite a message. None of my friends seem to understand them, though, and often I don't listen to people around me about fashion but my warning light is going on when absolutely no one likes them.

Lovely ladies, what is your opinion? Please help!

At first glance I thought nay but when you look at it with an outfit, it looks great!!!!

My feet are too small so they'd look really awkward for me, but if you don't have small feet, I say GO FOR IT! :love: I'd love to be able to pull off chunky shoes like that!!

I felt the same. Without the outfit, they seemed ihhh but when I saw them dressed I fell in love. Thanks for the feedback!

I know that this is an older thread, but I just wanted to chime in about how wearable these particular shoes are. I don't have the Clinics, but I do have the X-On, which are pretty much the Mary Jane version. They're ridiculously comfortable and they really do add an edge to even the simplest outfit.

Also, I love that blogger--Karen--because she has similar taste in shoes as I do and almost always manages to make them work, no matter how out there.
