if shoes could kill

Now, I am a lot like many women. I love shoes. I also love a bargain, which means shopping in stores like TJ Maxx and Marshall's. This is a dangerous combination because I have this little agreement with myself. If I find shoes that I like and they fit me, I can buy them. This might sound crazy until I tell you that I wear a size 11 (on the wide side) so the chances of me finding shoes anywhere that I like and that fit me are slim to none. I do, however, stick my feet in many  shoes in the process. (Kinda like a Cinderella story, huh?)

I own a lot of black shoes. This is for three reasons: 1. I wear black most days, 2. they match everything and 3. they disguise the actual length of my feet. (Have you ever seen a size 11 foot in white pumps? Not an attractive sight.) My current favorites are a pair of black ballerina flats and a pair of black patent leather loafers.

I recently came across the website If Shoes Could Kill.  This site is outrageous.  I can appreciate high fashion and every woman worth her salt has a pair of CFM pumps somewhere in her closet (even if she never walks in them), but these shoes take the cake!  Here are a few of the most over-the-top pairs.

And a couple of pairs by "real" designers.  (Wonder if Carrie Bradshaw would wear these?)


Thank you Balenciaga.

Ditto, Christian Louboutin


  1. Those are just GROSS! Ew, who would wear shoes covered in hair?

  2. I am awfully creeped out by pretty much every pair. OMG - I can never find a shoes either I am a 10 bordering on is amazingly difficult!

  3. that third pair looks like a mans foot... yikes.

  4. These shoes really would kill--me.

  5. I have a lot of black shoes too! I didn't realize how many until I read your post and it got me counting. :)
    Those shoes are quite amazing.

  6. Oops, forgot to wish you a Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

  7. Oh my gosh. This is so funny! And a little scary! Wow! The pair with the hamsters in it is too crazy for words!

  8. Well CLEARLY the Balenciaga were meant to be in the Transformer movies. No? Those are jaw dropping but... maybe not in a good way?


    Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day!

  9. I think that not only would Carrie Bradshaw wear them, but she would pull them off SPLEDIDLY!
    As for the rest...we'll leave those up to Samantha (have you seen the gold pantsed, shoulder spiked outfits in the new trailer?!?!)

  10. ugh...those double ones with the hair are pretty foul. they give me the creeps...

  11. Everyone of those would make me fall, without a doubt. Though I'm digging the clear stripper shoes with the mice in them.

    Lots of yummy love,
    Alex aka Ma What's for Dinner

  12. Those are some seriously crazy shoes....I love creativity but sometimes they go abit over top hahaha...but saying that if I had all the money in the world I am sure I would have some hidden crazies too
