"ACNE gives you a major style booster that lasts, it's a classic loafer modernized and taken to the next level".I'm sorry did something go wrong mid sentence there? Or was the person writing such a thing either a) blind b) high c) blind and high, because their statement couldn't be further from the truth.

If you had have asked me anytime before laying eyes on these if the gods at ACNE could do any wrong - my immediate answer would have been "absolutely, positively no". I mean after all you've seen the Pistol boot and I'm sure, like many before you, you had to wipe the long line of drool from your mouth afterwards and I'm sure you've seen their simple, yet achingly beautiful clothing as well. ACNE normally get it right every single time, but this time they got it oh so wrong

Don't get me wrong, I am all for different, innovative, look-at-me-i'm-pushing-the-boundaries-of-fashiondesigns, but there's that and then there's insanity. And I'm sorry but these fall directly under the latter category. I like loafer heels, take the Alexander Wang Anais Loafer pumpsfor example.  The consistent height and the seamless design make for a gorgeous shoe.

So how did ACNE get it so wrong? They took the loafer heel too far, tried too hard to be clever and made a shoe that was far too obvious. So instead of being left in awe from their craftsmanship, I'm left saying "we get it, you can make one type of shoe look like another. *slow clap* *bike horn*

Happy Tuesday, Ally, Have an awesome day! xoxox
