In our previous Ashanti post, we ended with pictures of the singer wearing Massimo Dogana sandals embellished with a well-manicured hand giving photographers the finger. You know there is no way we are ending the post just like that, nor are we done with a pair of shoes that are as rude, offensive, and as hot as that!
These are the shoes we are talking about, which Ashanti made headlines with when she wore them to the BCBGMAXAZRIA fashion show back in 2011.

Now, these are shoes you can’t forget. The idea behind these shoes is, of course, to flip people off without having to do the rude gesture yourself, but don’t be surprised if people actually come up to you instead of avoid you when you’re wearing them.
If you think Massimo Dogana is all about shock and controversy, the “F U” shoes are actually his only, um, bad-tempered ones. But his other designs are no less “bad” in a don’t-mess-with-me kind of way. You can say that Massimo Dogana shoes all have their own statements to make.
Just check out these sexy, studded, white snakeskin booties also spotted on Ashanti, who, at this point, has made it clear that she’s Massimo Dogana’s biggest celebrity fan:

We also spotted R&B singer Keyshia Cole in this bangin’ blue-and-brown snakeskin pair, a style which Ashanti, of course, also owns:
