Everyone hated all over these shoes. Someone even said "Balenciaga makes the worse shoes. period". Wow bitch- you better step off.
Or you risk being called fashion retarded.Personally, I love them. This is why Nicole Richie (thanks to her stylists and her fortunate position as rich-kid-default-celebrity which gives her the ability to shop all day) is a trendsetter and a fashionable figure (the word icon is used too liberally and usually inappropriately). People in this position are suppoed to take fashion risks- to look like everyday editorials or at least incorporate editorial-like creativity which is exactly what is happening here. People should appreciate instead of hate.
