If you want to be seen as an icon, you most certainly need to conquer the fashion industry.
We see fashion trends come and go quicker than the time that it would take to name them. Whether they are good or bad, all of them leave an impression, that's for sure. The worst of them all seem to be the shoes. What is it with designers and inventing utterly horrendous footwear? I wouldn't be caught dead wearing any of these, would you?
From fish-flops to ugly crocs, let's count down some of the weirdest shoes to have ever walked into existence, including the new color-changing converse.
1. Crocs with socks.
via: ElleYou either love them or hate them. And in this house, we hate them. Why try to make an ugly shoe uglier? And don't even get me started on how you'd have to wash them...
2. Grass flip-flops.
via: AmazonIf you love the feeling of grass under your feet, which a lot of people do, these are the perfect buy for you. I don't know how you're going to wash these either...
3. Flipper heels.
via: Virtual Shoe MuseumThese are cleverly named "High Tide Heels" and are a "conceptual object of art." Well, according to the Virtual Shoe Museum, they are. To me, they're just strange. These would be perfect if you were planning to go deep-sea diving but want to look sophisticated doing it.
4. Fish shoes.
via: AmazonSticking with the deep-sea diving theme, here are a pair of shoes that need to be eradicated immediately. Have you ever wondered what the inside of a fish feels like? These "Coddies Fish Flops" may be able to help you live that dream if that is your dream...
5. Goth Crocs.
via: EtsySocks attached to crocs, you can kind of get away with. Spikes, on the other hand, are a serious health and safety hazard.
6. Transparent trainers.
via: SheinFirst transparent raincoats, then transparent jeans. We now have transparent trainers. Who knows? In a couple of months, we might all be wearing transparent clothing... Yikes.
7. Goat-Gun hooves.
via: Design MilkTwo things that should never have been combined. Goat hooves and guns. I don't know what the designer, Iris Schieferstein, was thinking!
8. Platform Crocs.
via: YooxYou really thought that the weird croc obsession was over? Well, sorry to disappoint you, here's another. Introducing: the platform croc by Balenciaga. We couldn't be more disappointed.
9. Nike kitten-heels.
10. Camel-toe shoes.
via: Maison MargielaYes, these exist. People actually want to walk around wearing camel-toe shoes. But looking like an idiot comes at an expensive price - $812 to be exact.
11. Flame Crocs.
via: CrocsI promise, this is my last mention of crocs... I can't help it, they're just so ugly! If you're three years old, you'd probably like these, but if you're a grown adult and you're thinking of buying a pair, I suggest that you see a doctor immediately. There must be something wrong with you...
12. Tassled golf sneaker.
via: Mental FlossWhen you're off to have a good ol' game of golf, but need to blind your opponents in order to win. And they're tassled to make sure that you win a few extra points for style purposes. I'm kidding, stay away from these.
13. "Burger" shoes.
via: END ClothingThis one is for you food lovers out there. This special shoe was designed with our favorite fast food product in mind. Orange for the burger bun, green for lettuce, red for ketchup, and white for a dash of mayo. They're making me hungry...
14. High-top flip-flops.
via: ConverseConverse made its worst mistake releasing this line of horrendous footwear. The idea should have never left the drawing board, let alone hit the shelves. We're not here for it.
15. Color-changing Converse.Now onto the main event. Prepare yourselves, because I can guarantee that this is going to blow your socks off.
This new line of footwear released by Converse changes color in the sun!

"It's the beauty of the shoes: how unique they are."
via: Chinatown MarketMike Cherman, designer and the founder of Chinatown Market, spoke to Sneaker News about this incredible new invention. He said: "These hues change in their own way, and some colors will last longer while others will last for a shorter time period."
