LOOK: These odd-looking ‘cloven toe’ pumps may trigger dirty minds

July 26th, 2018

Today in the weird side of fashion: A new trend is making everyone take a double look.

A pair of flesh-colored pumps from French fashion house Maison Margiela worth $825 (PhP 47,411.76) and described as “cloven toe” are the newest item that make us question why fashion go this far sometimes. It’s also described as “eye-catching” and “both sculptural and modern”. Surely, wearing this will make catch other people’s attention—or make them ask what the heck are you wearing.

The odd-looking pumps splits the big toe from the rest when you wear it—making it look more like a “camel toe” for some especially with its color.

It’s now deemed as the new ugly shoe trend and we totally understand why!

Oh dear. Ugly has a new name – "Cloven Toe Pumps". I cannot unsee this. https://t.co/5AlEybxhrd
