Miuccia Prada’s Spring 2011 creepers were dubbed the “Frankenshoe” because of its mash-up looks consisting of a wingtip oxford, an espadrille and a sneaker. Out of all the shoe styles she could’ve chosen, it now looks like Miss Miuccia chose the Frankenshoe to follow up and draw inspiration from with this platform sandal from the very latest Miu Miu Resort 2012 collection:

No, the creeper and this wedge sandal look nothing alike but if the creeper was multi-platformed, this wedge sandal is clearly multi-heeled. Never thought we’d ever use that word here on YourNextShoes to pertain to a shoe feature. But it is the most fitting word to describe that metal platform + suede wedge + metallic block heel mash-up, which right now looks very strange to our fall/winter-adjusted eyes.
Think the one above actually looks normal? Well, you might want to rethink that once you see these other styles of the Miu Miu Resort 2012 wedge platform sandals featuring additional metallic block heels:
Miu Miu glitter wedge platform sandal, $750.00 (Sold Out)
Miu Miu roccia rope wedge sandal, $710.00 (Sold Out)
Miu Miu wedge sandal, $690.00 (Sold Out)
Miu Miu strappy cork wedge sandal, $690.00 (Sold Out)
To quote the internet, “seriously, WTF”?
But then again, this is Miuccia Prada. The so-called “Frankenshoe” became one of the hottest and most copied Spring 2011 shoes so this multi-heeled wedge platform sandal, while it may look strange now, could easily be one of the hottest style out of all the Resort 2012 shoes.
