(Very) Advanced Fashion Quiz

One of the boots below is an orthopedic walking cast identical to the one I had to wear for three months after I broke my foot while walking slowly on even ground (it was the most anticlimactic bone-breaking ever). The other is a creation from Stella McCartney's line for Adidas, valued at $250.


Pretty tough, no?

Update
An email from my dad this morning: "
Depending on how you think about it, the walking cast probably costs over a $1000 in uninsured dollars. With the other you at least get two 'walking casts'." Excellent point! I think we've found the first bargain from Stella McCartney!

wow. I'm impressed by how you've stepped it up.
Actually, I was scrolling down as I went, so whilst reading "orthopedic walking cast" the image of the Stella McCartney for Adidas boot appeared, and as it unveiled it I thought to myself "Well that's obviously the cast!"
Embarassing blonde moment or hideously ugly boot?
You decide.

I am shocked Stella didn't make her version open-toed too, really would have improved the look.

Next she should do a stylish pacemaker!

Material Girl said...

god. wow. those are *almost* as hideous and nervous-tic-causing as Uggs.

Stella REALLY needs to stick to what she's good at: swishy dresses and oversized taupe cardigans. That's it. Nothing more. SIMPLIFY, Stella, SIMPLIFY!

Wow...that boot is something. Stella, really? You're dad is right!

la femme said...

ha!

i recently invested in a low-top pair of the bottom boot, (sort of an orthopedic gladiator sandal) and mine cost around $4000 un-insured dollars.
so my question is, where can one find the stellas?
or at worst, who's YOUR doctor?

I thought the Stella shoe was the cast before scrolling down too. Oh dear.

They both fail on account of having no place to take a sharpie to and thus leave your friend with graphic pictures of sexual intercourse between two animals on her arm for three months.





I am a horrible, appalling friend. :(

I think Stella McCartney is playing a joke on us consumers by designing that. Funny. :)

anna said...

wow... I seriously thought the first picture was the walking cast before I saw the second one...

I believe you have achieved the impossible. Well done!

Elissa said...

I genuinely "ho ho ho"'d at this post! Your dad is a smart guy. PS-- All cast comparisons aside, I feel the need to wear those boots with a silver swimsuit into outerspace.

Aaaaaaiieeeeee!! Foot-surgery flashbacks!!

So over Ms. McCartney. Everything she produces these days oozes smugness.
