It's Christmas, which means it's party season. Some people leave the house with the sole purpose of making themselves look as much of a tosser as is humanly possible. Others buy these trainers...
You might be asking, who are we to judge? Absolutely nobody that's who - especially when you saw what we wear wearing on Christmas jumper day - but an opinion is an opinion and these are downright offensive.
And the worst thing of all is that some of these 'sneakers' have actually sold out - yep, people are shelling out their hard-earned cash to pay for them. Which demonstrates that some people clearly have more money than sense.
So, if you tuned into Elf last night and feel like getting a little (or a helluva lot) carried away then please be our guests. Dressing like a massive elf might be your idea of a perfect Christmas.
The LOEWE trainers are available on site for anywhere between £425 ($536) and £475 ($599) depending on whether you fancy high tops or not... be warned - that doesn't make much difference as they both still have a curly eyesore attached to the front.
If you are desperate to get your paws on them, we have found another option. Luxury fashion site, Mytheresa, are flogging them for the bargain price of £332 ($419) which still makes us feel sick to the stomach.
The description on Mytheresa explains that the 'unmistakably curly toes' of the shoes were inspired by 'a pair of Moroccan slippers Jonathan Anderson once owned'.
Well, there's us sold. If Jonathan Anderson once owned a similar pair then what're we waiting for?
The website goes on: "The elf-like design is immediately playful and comes with suede panelling, leather trims, and white contrast lacing.
"Soft padding at the ankles ensure this high-top design is comfortable from toe to heel. Show yours off along with printed miniskirts and downtime denim alike."
Wouldn't they be better paired with a sack to cover them up? Even those showstopping foot bags you put over your feet when you walk into a swimming baths would be better. Anything to cover them up really.
Maybe you could put bells on the end to let people know you're coming.
Our faith in humanity has been slightly restored though because it seems that many people are in the same boat as us, wondering what is going through the minds of the people flaunting them on the end of their legs.
One said: "£332 to look like a twat," while another summed it up perfectly: "When you're running a 5K at noon but you're appearing in panto at 2pm..."
That said, Post Malone has his own range of Crocs, so we don't really know what to think about anything anymore...
