Fashion trends come and go, but this one from 2017 walks in and out with its foot halfway out the door.
A set of bizarre double-faced cowboy boots from high fashion streetwear brand Hood By Air’s (HBA) Spring-Summer 2017 fashion show has resurfaced, because, as you know, weirdness doesn’t rub away easily on the internet.
On the ‘A different type of Art’ Facebook page, users are baffled by the sight of these shoes, which were conceptualized by HBA designer Shayne Oliver. At the same time, they’re certain of how these oversized boots can be utilized.
Facebook user Eszter Hlavács labeled the design as “genius,” and thought the look was perfect for budding criminals. “Use this to rob banks, at the border, at other crime scenes… So if you leave footprints, it may confuse the police.”
Another recommended it for anyone who’s going out for drinks, “So when [you’re] so drunk, you can never put them on wrong.”
Backward thinkers might not appreciate these boots, but the internet always will.
