The ugly shoe has gone mainstream: 5 backless furry loafers for less

The ugly shoe every Street Style stalwart sports has reached the high street

I told you the Fashion Overlords were intent on making this ugly shoe a thing. The shoe uglier than soggy Uggs was seen in Topshop earlier this season, but it has reached the High Street proper. Expect to see these on actual human feet any day now. Any day. (Don't make me be the first.)

First, here they are in all their Gucci glory:

Before you wonder, Gucci does offer a fur-less version of the slip-loaf (that means to stand for slipperloafer, don't you know).

But if your apartment doesn't allow pets, well, you can't do much better than this, right?
