Prada's 'Smoking' Shoes: Gross or Great?

Let's face it: Smoking cigarettes has gone out of fashion. But Prada can't seem to let it go. The chi-chi Italian designer has created a pair of stiletto sandals featuring bright pink patent leather lips dangling a cigarette. Not our idea of classy, but we guess Prada begs to differ.

prada lips

The cost of supporting (or making fun of, depending on how you look at it) a deadly habit? A hefty $890 at Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue. As the New York Daily News points out, for the same about of money, you could buy 80 packs of cigarettes in New York City (but please don't). On a budget? A pair of "smoking" slides only cost $590. The "Lips" heels do come with a sense of humor (and a cheeky nod to '80s fashion), but we really don't think there's anything cool about smoking. Do you?

    It gives out the wrong message. Smoking went out of style, be thankful for that. Making these shoes is unnecesary.

    I adore these. They're really cute. I don't see anything gross about them!!!

    Are they worth the $900 to you? OR, Maybe you like them, but don't mind waiting a few months for the novelty-ness to wear off, then get them for around $90 ( They are STILL Prada). Or , in a yr. get them for $10 at a liquidator store or Goddwill. You can still have the shoes you adore, the Prada name, and $ to go clubbing to show off your footwear. One can do a LOT of clubbing with $800+ to spend.

    As a throwback to 80s fashion and an article of clothing they are amazing! On some people they would look super tacky but worn by someone with good taste they would be a super trendy addition to the outfit.

    I don't think someone with good taste would Want to be seen wearing those shoes with any outfit, unless maybe a Halloween dinner/party where you pay $200-/$2000 a plate for a charity of some kind, like they do in Cali..

    It promotes a bad habit that is hard to kick and is not attractive!



    I wouldn't waste my money on crap like that! To many better styles to choose from!

    STINKS! And to pricy!!!

    Hell No! Don't glamorize smoking! I smoked less than half a pack a day. I'm as close as you can get to genetically immune to cancer, and the cigs still got me. I have "critical" emphysema, I have to use oxygen to sleep safely and on bad air days.
    Also drop that heel height by half and double the width, they're ruining women's bone structure in their feet and falling because of high-heels is a big enough problem it's on the CDC accident statistics for the age group.

    The lips on the shoes are tacky enough now you add a ciggarette. Peopl these days first it was the word sex on a pair shoe for what to make you look like a slut now they want you to promote people slowly killing themselves. Fashion designers these days

    You have got to be kidding me. But, whatever, it's their choice what they want to wear. That looks so stupid... And isn't it promoting smoking by wearing that? We don't want MORE people smoking!

    HAHA of course there 600$ I would never wear those, or spend that money on these stupid shoes. I'll stick with 10$ sandals.
