Feet Shoes by Celine

Feet shoes. They are shoes that go on your feet. They also look like feet on your feet. They come with a perfect manicure and there’s no long, weird toe. Sound great, or do they? Personally, I think they sound horrendous. They are just as ugly as they sound, but you be the judge.

I am a little late to report on the stereotypical footwear Phoebe Philo sent down the SS13 catwalk for Celine but my browsing came across the racist pumps last night – thankfully, my eyes were only scorn online. I had to share.

I call them racist because apparently varying skin tones weren’t welcome. After all, I only know a handful of women with porcelein, Snow White skin. It’s apparent Phoebe Philo believes that Celine as a fashion house is not up to their Cover Girl skin tone matching standards. Perhaps, a Caucasian woman designed a pair of Caucasian shoes to be shown on Caucasian models for their Caucasian friends who edit and photograph magazines with only Caucasian models on the cover with ad space featuring only Caucasian women.

If any woman of other skin tones were offended they can’t purchase these in their skin colour, don’t be miffed… be relieved. Feet are generally unattractive and better hidden, especially you guys with that one toe that has a mind of it’s own. Besides, lets get to the polish colour. Red? Why red? I’m bored.

There you have it. Nothing’s changed. Flesh tone means light and white, right? Idiots.
