I wish I could wear creepers and thick crepe soles. When they're crafted with clean lines and classic materials of course. I'm not a fan of animal print inserts. Unfortunately as far as wearing this style of shoe goes I'm tall and skinny, my calves are built like tentpoles, and I have thin (wiry) ankles. One of the few examples where I actually wish I wasn't skinny so that I could wear an accessory. Oh well.
These creeper style shoes by Undercover caught my attention and inspired this dead-end tangent. Dr. Marten, an old high school favorite, has been taking advantage of high fashion interests in heavy soles for the past few years. They have produced some noteworthy collaborations with Yohji Yamamato and Raf Simons. The good: Yohji has produced some clear winners for men and women. The bad: While Raf has sent his models out in a wide range of creeper inspired shoes before, and many of those examples are desirable, nothing could posess me to slip into these mandal (man+sandal) versions(WTF were you thinking?!?).
