Crochet Frog Sock Heels: Ugly or Interesting?

My friend Simone over at skinnydip.ca is always thinking of ShoeTease when ugly shoes cross her path (wait a sec…is that a good thing)? Just the other week, she forwarded me this amazingly bizarre frog high heel from Pinterest. It’s a shoe. But if you look closely, it’s really a sock.
