Lobster- and Alien-Influenced Footwear

So everyone has something to say about the bizarre, otherworldly, alien footwear of Alexander McQueen's Spring 2010 collection. I love The Cut's description of one pair as "fancy couture disco lobster claws," which seems pretty apt. (Here's Shoewawa's take.)I seriously wonder how the models walked in them, what with their twiggy little legs. These are elaborate 10-inch clunkers—surely they're heavy!

So they're undoubtedly art (or "art," if you prefer—I'm on the fence), but will anyone wear them? For the sake of good taste and women's ankles everywhere, I certainly hope not.
