Distorted Mary-Jane or convoluted boot. However you describe Miuccia Prada’s fall boot–shown with practically every look at her fall show Thursday–they are certainly statement making. For one, they cling to the calf, so this boot is not going to be for every woman. Secondly, their patchworked elements–the suede, snakeskin and glitter–can be a bit intense. Third, note the snub-nosed toe and the bulbous curve heel. Talk about a lot going on, no? It’ll be interesting to see how they are translated into stores come August, but no doubt there will be a customer for these. In black with python, the boots are actually quite chic and almost Mod like. What do you think? Shoe Snob or Shoe Slob?
