Forget Isabel Marant's plush hidden-wedge sneakers. Forget Louboutin's pointe shoes. There's a new batch of crazy footwear in town. We took the liberty of rounding up 10 of the most bonkers pairs of shoes available for purchase online right now, and boy is it a doozy of a list. Most of the pairs here have something to do with a crazy wedge, be it platform (decorated or not) or flatform, or some version of fur—or, most excellently, both. We're not saying these are necessarily the most hideous shoes out there, but they are… crazy. Crazy enough to work? You decide. Wear if you dare, that's for sure.
