Finally, a shoe that will be comfortable commuting but still not result in my pant hems dragging on the ground! Thank you Belle!!!!

This isn’t the worst idea I’ve ever heard…

Omg, tres chic. Buying thirty pairs. Do you think I could find a coordinating Vera?
April 1, 2013 9:31AM
Happy April Fools Belle 🙂
April 1, 2013 9:31AM
You almost tricked me for a minute and then I remembered… April Fools. Nice one.
April 1, 2013 9:37AM
What I REALLY want are UGGS with high heels… is that too much to ask?
April 1, 2013 9:51AM
Oh, Belle! You almost had me. I wonder if Uggs makes a version of these lovely shoes 😉
April 1, 2013 9:56AM
THANK goodness this was a joke 🙂
April 1, 2013 10:03AM
Wow! $640.00 to look like Luke Skywalker. Happy April Fools Day.
April 1, 2013 10:06AM
Oh thank God – I forgot about April Fools Day and was wondering if you were high! Very nice Belle…
April 1, 2013 10:31AM
I totally was fooled! I was so shocked at this post but once I checked the comments I was relieved….good one!

Slow clap. Well played.

I know some people who actually consider these “athletic” shoes, including online “fashion” games, etc. Waiting for a rise in broken and sprained ankles in 188.8.131.52……
April 1, 2013 11:00AM
Oh my gosh… before I read the other comments I was going to say “I just CANNOT get onboard with this trend” Happy April Fools indeed!

You know, I’ve seen so many other fashion bloggers wear these that it took me a few minutes to figure you that these aren’t really your style, Belle…!
April 1, 2013 12:01PM
*figure out. Although I still can’t figure out why someone would spent $670 on the Isabel Marants rather than get a really classy Choo or Louboutin on sale for that price!
April 1, 2013 12:14PM
Every few years, people try to make these high heeled sneakers a thing. Why?
April 1, 2013 12:39PM
Thanks god it’s April 1st….would’ve been concerned about you, belle!

That Corporette and Boardroom Belles both posted these are must haves makes this joke even sweeter.
@Rory: They miss the Spice Girls?

I’m kind of torn on them, even though they’re not my style, because I’ve seen a few bloggers really pull off the look. But it’s just not for me, I’d feel silly wearing them.

I wish I could have seen my own under-caffeinated expression when I opened CHS this morning. I was 100% puzzled and just wondering if it was an off day. Thanks SO much.

On the one hand, they are ugly. On the other hand, a coworker has a pair that are HOT pink and made by Ash. I hate to admit it but they didn’t look too bad. The ones you posted here, though, are fugly.
April 1, 2013 4:37PM
Ha! Happy April Fools Day, Belle. I was getting ready to reply to this post with a solid WTF, when I realized what day it was…
April 1, 2013 5:05PM
Oh, Belle! I audibly gasped when I saw this. This made my morning.
