Though I audibly gasped upon seeing this pair of Kei Kagami¬†shoes, they’re actually kind of ugly. But this design, which looks slightly lopsided and very awkward by itself, probably transforms into the most beautiful of specimens when placed on a foot.

A 4-inch heel is covered by an ankle shield, held in place by screws and attached to the laces with, well, laces. Leather everything, and it looks buttery soft if my eyes aren’t playing tricks. Sometimes ugly is beautiful. Get your weird on for $774.95 at

I stole my first pair of platforms from the Spice Bus in 1997 when Anglophilia was all the rage. Collector of vintage bags, vinyl and kitchen appliances. My dream of becoming a butcher is momentarily on hiatus so I can teach you how to wear muumuus and apply false eyelashes. Follow me on Twitter @CrystlMeatballs.
