It’s the complete opposite, in fact; owning a pair of the hot-to-have Mara & Mine slippers makes one the object of envy.

Proud owners include Abbey Lee Kershaw and Julianne Hough, who have taken to Twitter to show off what they call their latest shoe obsession.

It’s amazing how Mara & Mine designers Tamara Ingham and Jasmine Yarbrough were able to turn skeletons — a very much overused and abused fashion design element — into something fresh, highly coveted, and distinctly recognizable once again.

These Mara & Mine Jem Skull slippers feature skeleton embroidery that makes the wearer’s feet look as if they’re being x-rayed.
