What the What?! Prada Shoes with Chrome, Fins, and Taillights?

2012-prada-spring-shoe-collectionI'll go ahead and preface with this - a fashionista I am not.  I'm a jeans and tee shirt gal, and if I wear a dress it means I'm going someplace fancy.  That said - I do love a nice pair of pumps.  And I do love the aesthetic of classic cars.  Have I ever thought of marrying the two?  In a word, no.  But that's not stopping Prada!  

Feast your eyes on these - I don't even know what to call them - astounding shoes.  Yes, those are taillights, a la 50's hot rods.  The other designs sport flames or sleek, understated curves.  Garish?  Most definitely.  Is that a bad thing?  Not really!  I have some couture-conscious friends who would absolutely love to rock these with an edgy rockabilly look.  

Would I wear them?  Maybe not, but that's an unfair question.  I don't have anything to wear with them. These shoes are fashion hot rods - if the rest of your outfit can't keep up with them, you're going to be left in their dust.  

We featured these designs on the Ask Patty Pinterest board (hey, you pinners, follow us!), and  if you're just burning and yearning for more, head past the jump for all the Prada Hot Rod shoes you can handle, including a gallery of other designs and a video featuring these bad-to-the-bone shoes in action.
