It was not love at first sight, but I wanted to buy a pair.
However, my husband was with me at the Prada boutique and he said : “No, it looks ugly and you don’t look good on them. Your $750 (plus 8.875% NY tax) will be such a waste if you buy it.”
This Prada “Creeper” however haunted me like crazy, hence, three weeks ago I decided that buying it will put my mind to rest. I wanted to get the white.
The Creeper is an unnatural looking hybrid of a wingtip oxford, an espadrille and a sneaker. They have become the rage and the hottest new shoe for most fashion forward New Yorkers and I know that for sure because now, I would have to go on wait list to get a pair.
Call it the clownish shoes, ugly and all but they are comfortable and its old appeal is what’s getting most women to buy it – me included.
