The Craziest Shoes from Haute Couture Week Fall 2017

You can always count on Haute Couture week for some fun over-the-top fashion. The fall ’17 collections certainly didn’t disappoint; designers showed extremely bold footwear styles. (Given couture shoes are never big commercial successes, we tend to see labels take the most risks with them.)

Jean-Paul Gaultier’s latest couture collection, among other components, included shaggy après-ski boots that had skyscraper platforms. They came in classic white or beige fur, as well as punchy red colorways (as seen below).

At Viktor & Rolf, the shoes were all satin ruffles and bows. But the real wacky fashion was the giant doll heads that models sported with the looks. Talk about making a statement.

Meanwhile at Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld showed the label’s signature fur looks, extending it down to the shoes with furry pom-poms. At Margiela, Western-style boots were amped up in colorful metallics.
