I am a shoes girl, I openly have admitted this over and over again in my blog. I like wacky or edgy shoes that most people would find "weird". Despite this, I cannot get over how ugly these shoes are:

They just look, horrid no matter what colour they are in.

I truly understand the concept of the shoe. That the ruffle is an embellishment to give the shoe a bit of "catch the eye" when they would otherwise be very plain. It just does not look quite right to me and when you see the embellishment on a flat sandal:

It just looks even worse. It looks like you have ruffled hobbit feet. Just say no to ruffled hobbit feet.
I understand this style is very popular at the moment, especially in the wedge style. I am just not understanding why since they will quickly become dated in look and are not the best looking shoes, or the most interesting, out there. If you want to be daring with shoes, go full out daring and not "watered down ruffle" daring.
I just cannot get behind this style at all. It just screams "Walmart Chic". Yes, I will be passing on this footwear trend and drooling over shoes like these instead:
