Cape Shoes? Sign Me Up

Leandra Medine | August 23, 2011

I’m not one to complain about the state of my shoe closet or even suggest that if I don’t have a pair my feet may castrate themselves which in turn will lead to my death via blood loss. Just kidding, don’t you know me? Come on, I’ve been writing love letters to you for over a year now. I’m Drama Queen 3000 when it comes to the happenings of territory south of the ankle. Now that said and processed I am sure you can imagine the palpitations that disrupted regular heart beat when I saw these:

Shoes? With capes? Holy smokes! If ever I wondered how I could layer my capes, I’m wildly happy, excited and honored to know Alexander Wang has mocked up the solution. And just here, when I thought he had certainly stroke my lady boner to a new capacity of woman wood…

Holy Kiki de Montparnasse! You look like an extra from that episode of Sex and the City when Carrie tries to lure good sex into her bedroom with Berger via furry shoe. Looking back now, I must admit, new footwear most likely is the only palpable solution in that type of situation. Funny that these are meant to arouse the male genitalia, you should have seen the look on my brother’s face when he walked passed my computer just a few moments ago. And for that only, I mandate this: I’ll take two, please.

    Those shoes, have capes. Wow. Just wow.

  • Stephen

    Superhero shoes. Amazing.


  • Helena

    I love the second shoes! I love it!!!

  • blue roses

    i feel like some psychoanalytic academic could examine the correlation between the cape, leather flap of the shoe and some type of foreskin loss mourning and fear in men. too much, too soon?

    cannot wait to see some pictures, asap.


    I need the Fabiana sandals in my life!!
    I bet super man is regretting HIS choice of a cape now!

    I really like the first ones, one of the most beautiful shoes I`ve seen lately. The second pair are not really my style, but I'd give a chance to the nude model.

  • Trips & Treasures

    funny !

    I love the metallic colors
    new post : my fall boots

  • indie.electronic.alternative.

    yea, these are wild. if he'd just make some freaking shoes without a 5 inch heel i'd be all over them. in the meantime, perhaps i'll purchase, never wear, but will frequently pet the fox fur pair. meow.

  • CupcakesOMG!

    omg, mariboo AND a shoe cape??? I'm dying. DYING! dead.


  • amyC

    I think A Wang's come out with a shoe with a rabbit foot cape? Something like that!


  • i am not a celebrity

    Wang. Dirty. Delish. WDD. What does it spell? That it's raining in London and I have cabin fever. Pretty shoes. What's next? a heel with a back-turned baseball cap? I hope so.

  • Coco

    Do you think man repelling counts as a superhero power?? Teehee. And now there's the perfect attire to accompany such a power!

  • sara

    i don't find the cape shoe so repellant. but the fluffy, cape shoe…. i think we need to see you in them!

    I've always been extremely obsessed with "feather boa" shoes as I called them when I was 2. Yay for not having to buy them at Fredricks of Hollywood anymore!


  • Aarti

    haha.. u are hilarious!! u get a smile on my face everytime!
    the cape shoes… are.. amazing!!

  • The Fancy Teacup

    Alexander Wang never ceases to amaze me. Frou frou fur and a superhero accessory never looked better on a woman's heel.

    ♥, Jamie

  • Elegantly Wasted

    The Fabiana heel is absolutely amazing! I want them in every colour!

    Though, to be honest, I'm not so sure about the Simona. I like the style but the fluff reminds me of really fancy slippers!


  • LA Princess

    Truly man repelling lol


    I think they are kind of cheese and cheap

  • Style Dilettante

    I'd go all the way – cape and boa! Bring on the cheap (see comment above)

  • HeatherClark

    why do the red cape ones with the fur have to be $900! love love love…i esp love that these are so strappy and sleek…i've been hoping shoes would move away from the chunkier style just for something different…if i dont do the red the silver or rose gold are a must

  • V

    i just showed the furry caped shoe to my friend and after 5 minutes of him staring i finally realized that he did not know he was looking at a SHOE.

  • Anonymous

    fox fur?? SAD! I don't care how nice they are to look at, it isn't worth skinning a fox for. Come on people..

    What happened to the Cape… Work boot???????? Stick the clothes up your butt!!!!!!

  • glamoroustriathlete

    Oh God…those looks so fabulously trashy. I would wear that out with a lace teddy. And flaunt it in front of ex-boyfriends. Hee….what fun!
