Miuccia Prada likes her outfits, for both men and women, to emphasize the bottom half of the body because the most important elements of a person's life, sex and birth, happen in the lower region. Enter the weird shoe--it comes in many mediums (fur, plexiglass, gorilla heads, and loafer-sneaker hybrids) for you to smear dog feces with.
Since people automatically look at each others faces, the weird shoe obstructs your line of vision. So, if you're not lookin' so hot dans le visage, I recommend the furry McQueen boots shown below.
The strange shoe also confronts conventional beauty in the fashion industry. Sure, no one will judge you in your blue suede shoes, and they may even be "pretty," but your "ugly" bejeweled pool sandals will make people think.
