Hands down, the best part about the Fendi Embossed Anaconda Clog is the fact that I didn’t even realize it was a clog until I read the name of the shoe. It managed to baffle me with orange faux snakeskin and a giant heel just long enough for me to fall in love with it before I even had the chance to realize what had happened.
If you had described this shoe to me without letting me see a picture of it, I would have told you that it would be a hot mess once produced. And it is a hot mess, but in the best way possible. It’s sexy, zany and totally making me dream of spring – even though it has yet to get particularly cold (or cold at all, grumble grumble) in Atlanta this year.
Everyone knows that I like my shoes to go ever-so-slightly against the grain of good taste, and this pair fits those parameters to a T. The platform is too high, the color of the embossed snakeskin is too peach, the fact that peach snakeskin clogs even exist is too ridiculous. Is that a gold wood-plated heel? And yet, it all makes me so sublimely happy that I wouldn’t hesitate to pre-order this pair of wacky shoes and tell myself over and over again that the chunk platform and heel probably means that they’d actually be sort of comfortable. For the less adventurous among us, the design also comes in tan, but what would be the point? Buy through Neiman Marcus for $830.
