Blame It on Gangnam Style: Horse Hoof Heel-Less Shoes Are Still Hot

Ever since the heel-less shoes lost its shock value, we naturally assumed that it was finally going the way of the dial phone.

But a totally unexpected YouTube hit changed all that. Psy’s “Gangnam Style” and its accompanying giddy-up dance moves have made horsey stuff, including hoof-like heel-less shoes, hot again! (Click here to see Britney Spears try to learn the Gangnam dance in nearly 6-inch stilettos.)

Yes, we’re totally blaming Gangnam — and you can throw in these Alexander McQueen fall 2012 horseshoe-bottomed shoes, too:

Alexander McQueen Enameled Flower Suede Platform Sandals, $7,520 at Net-A-Porter

Of course, Jeffrey Campbell was the first to knock off the style. Actually, it has not only copied it but has also completely embraced the style:

Jeffrey Campbell “On-Deck” Heel-Less Platform Booties, $244.95 at Nordstrom

Jeffrey Campbell “Giles” Crisscross Strap Heel-Less Platform Slingback, $214.95 at Nordstrom

Jeffrey Campbell “Incline” Heel-Less Platform T-Strap Sandals, $179.95 at Nordstrom

That was expected of Jeffrey Campbell, but check it out — more and more shoe labels down the line of a trend’s natural “trickle down” course are picking up the look:

Bumper “Agyness-10” Heel-Less Ankle-Strap Platform Pumps, $45.90

C Label “Femi-1” Heel-Less Platform Sandals, $59.95

Are you ready for even more atrocious hoof-like, heel-less shoes this 2013? Looks like you have to be whether you like it or not!
