Remember those Louis Vuitton boots we spotted on Jennifer Connelly? If you don’t, we have to apologize for showing you the pictures below because the boots are shockingly ugly. We reasoned that the only explanation for the usually stylish Jennifer to wear the boots was that she was contractually obligated to do so.

However, we were shocked even further when the boots were spotted again, and at a chi-chi high-fashion event no less. Adèle Exarchopoulos wore them to a party celebrating Louis Vuitton, which we figured is the only appropriate occasion to wear tacky monogrammed boots.

What we thought was disproved once again when Julianne Moore stepped out at the Still Alice premiere with Kristen Stewart in the now omnipresent boots. She chose a style without the gold trim, but the boots’ garishness was hardly reduced.

It looks like we can’t fight the boots this time and just have to let them happen. At this rate, they could very well be the next It shoes. Are you ready to see these boots rise in all their bad vintage ’70s glory? Monograms often scream “fashion victim,” but see if these plain-colored and creepy snakeskin versions are any better:
