Things that exist: Yves Saint Laurent stiletto roller skates

Like sky-high stiletto shoes don’t hurt already enough, amirite ladies? I know, let’s turn ‘em into roller skates! Say what?! Saint Laurent did just that with their Anthony Vaccarello-designed stiletto roller skates that retail for £2,000 ($2,625). Who in their right mind would buy these painful puppies that promise even more pain?

According to Dazed Digital:

The heels previously appeared in campaign images for the brand that were banned by France’s watchdog over allegations that the images were demeaning to women.

I have to agree, the whole roller skate/stiletto mash-up is totally stupid. And look how pricey: $2,625? $2,625 for this? YIKES!

I have this thing with hatin’ on shoes here on Dangerous Minds. Previous examples of my shoe-hating posts include: The worst f*cking shoes on the planet: Cowboy sandal boots and The second worst f*cking shoes on the planet: Basketball shoe cowboy boots.

Maybe it’s just that I dislike any sort of cowboy boot mash-up shoes? I have nothing against cowboy boots—I don’t personally wear them—but there’s something about adding an additional (and uncalled for) new element to the boot that doesn’t jive with me.

For instance, cowboy boot roller skates. Maybe I’m wrong here and these are the best creations ever. But I don’t think I’m wrong, though. They’ve got shitty theme restaurant uniform written all over them, amirite?

If you’ve just gotta own a pair of these boots, then WaynesWesternWheels.com will turn some cowboy boots into roller skates for you. The site is currently under construction. You can visit their Facebook page and contact them there about purchasing and pricing.
