Antediluvian Sea Monster

In the context of the catwalk I don't hate these boots so much.

Partly because I think this collection is so weird and beautiful.

And partly because I am utterly in love with the lovely Sarah Mower from Style.com's description of it:

Then the models came out, dressed in short, reptile-patterned, digitally printed dresses, their gangly legs sunk in grotesque shoes that looked like the armored heads of a fantastical breed of antediluvian sea monster. McQueen, according to an internal logic detailed in a press release, was casting an apocalyptic forecast of the future ecological meltdown of the world: Humankind is made up of creatures that evolved from the sea, and we may be heading back to an underwater future as the ice cap dissolves.
