Ugly Shoe Winner!

So exciting! The winner of the ugly shoe contest is Katie. It was a very difficult choice! There were so many ugly shoes to choose from, but these shoes just seemed to scream, "Fuck You! My shoes are a modern weapon so get out of my way!" And I thought to myself, what could be worse than ugliness paired with sheer rudeness? Plus, I have been seeing a lot of these spiky nightmares and I want to register my OPPOSITION right here and now.

However, if you MUST have them, you can find them here.

Congratulations, Katie! I know this honor means everything to you. How will you ever top such an achievement? It will be hard, but I urge you to try because a life without goals and ambitions is a sad life indeed. Well done!

And what has Katie won? My copy of the book Death Comes to Pemberly by PD James, which I had such high hopes for but really found kind of uninteresting. But maybe you'll like it more, Katie! Email me your address at mail@margaretfinnegan.com and I will send it right out to you!

as long as no goldfish were killed in the making of that shoe, I'd like to purchase a pair. Size 11 please.

Katie, that sounds like a crap prize. Tell her you want the Pride & Prejudice video.

No kidding it's a crap prize, but those are crappy-looking shoes.

Margaret, if Katie refuses to send you her mailing address don't worry, I have it.

I can't even see how that's a shoe. How is that a shoe? For people with bound feet? What if you trip? You could impale yourself and die! Hemophiliacs should NOT purchase this shoe. But people who wish to throw shoes at obtuse US Presidents might want to invest, at least in one.

Congrats to Katie! You found the perfect punk-glitter self-defense shoes. They could be used as a murder weapon in one of PD James's mysteries.

Katie said...

What a riot to win! I like your characterization of these shoes as both ugly AND rude. I'm not sure how I'll ever top this honor, but I'll put my best foot forward and hope to walk away a winner in some other endeavor. The PD James book sounds interesting (and if it gets dull I'll pop in my P&P DVD and distract myself with the dreamy Mr. Collins). I'll be in touch. Thanks for a fun contest!

Congratulations, Katie. At least you can add this to your resume--honors and awards and all. (I am jealous because I really wanted to win.)

Hands down. I wonder, are those Louboutins? Alexander Mcqueens?
(ugliest shoes ever, lobster claws that Lady Gaga wears in Bad Romance)
Jimmy Choos? I took some shots at a Louboutin shop, but forgot to send them!!!

Fun post, fun comments, and I'm so happy for Katie!

Congrats to Katie! That is quite an honor.

So Margaret, you've been seeing a lot of these? You mean strutting around South Pas? That would be something.
