Freak-Shoe Friday: Zanotti Puts a Sock in it for Thakoon

I start my Friday quite upset. Why am I so distraught, you ask? Well, last week it was my love Kirkwood & today it's my Italian shoe designer love Giuseppe Zanotti, now both featured in a Freak-Shoe Friday post. I am perplexed; are the high-end designer Gods becoming unhinged, or have they been keeping unsound, distasteful company?

I mean, come on now, what IS this footwear item? It's incongruous & puzzling. The light wood stacked heel & peep-toe scream summer, whereas the wool sock & shearling trip scream winter. Not a fan of sock-boots for the most part, this creation just depresses me even more as Zanotti (with his usually delicate shoe creative hands) took part in designing them. For Thakoon. Usually so refined & chic in character are his shoes. Could Thakoon be the problem?

Either way, it's not a been a popular item, so I'm guessing a lot of you are with me on this one. That's probably why it's 70% off at ShopBop

That is all.

Couldn't agree with you more. This is just weird.
