Normally in this category of “Shoe Porn”, I share some shoes I love and wouldn’t mind finding in my shoe collection one morning. But…well, to balance the good, there must always be the bad and the ugly.
Jeffrey Campbell Lita’s are probably one of the most wanted style of shoes at the moment. Everyone in blog land (this weird place) seems to either have a pair, have a pair of fakes/lookalikes or want a pair. I was browsing the Lita collection on Solestruck and came across the following. Prices are beneath each picture so you can go WHAT THE HELL TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR THOSE? Because trust me, theres at least one pair here you’ll say that about.
Not very me, but not that offensive really. They remind me of bowling shoes or roller boots. I want a pair of roller boots now.
I’m not a fan of animal prints, but I just don’t get the toe. Its like a baboons red bottom as your toe.
Cosmic Litas – for that garden party that you’re going to. No?
Um. Cat tapestry. I just can’t
Be an extra from the Lady Gaga “Telephone” video!
Finally, to match the stars and stripes ones above, why not look like a Spice Girl in there “Spicy” Union Jack glitter platform boots. Only $148!
I have never understood the obsession WITH Litas, I just think they are fugly! I do like the cosmic print though :P
Is it wrong that I kind of like them??? Cosmic and Chewbacca are my favourites!!!
I like the cat print (no idea why, I know it’s ugly!) and I rather like the cosmic print.
I however do not like the clumpy Lita, just a shoe that looks clumpy on most unless you are a long legged model.
Ok, I’m definitely not a fan of these prints, but I do have to admit I love the shape and style of the Lita (please don’t never speak to me again now I’ve addmitted that!). I just love the wackyness of them I guess!

I know what you mean; Lita’s, if you actually look at the plain ones, are just glorified, expensive shoe boots. The sad thing is, most girls probably aren’t even buying them because they like them, they’re probably just getting them because the rest of the blogosphere is going mental for them. (Which is irritating, because I would gladly take their Ã‚Â£130 off them to pay my rent!).
If I was given a pair, I would wear them, or if I found a pair for a tenner in a charity shop, but there is no way I would even consider paying that much for them (or any pair of shoes), especially considering their basically a fad, and won’t be exactly a timeless piece that you can wear forever.
And I completely agree with Kelly- people with legs shorter than some people’s arms (it has been known…) like me would look ridiculous in them.
Another great post anyway.

Cat tapestry?! Holy heck. BAD! Some of those styles are cute, but for me, it’s the heel on all of them which frightens the bejesus out of me!
I like the cosmic one, but I’d never wear it. The style is so weirdly clunky. No thanks!
I love the Nebula ones though my all-time favourite Litas were the burgundy paisley tapestry ones… I’m still dreaming of them!
I love lita! The shape, form and fit. Don’t care for the crazy prints though, solid colors only for me. However, that leopard and pink — I don’t know. I’m smitten! But where would you ever where it? :)
