Crimes Against Shoemanity: An Instagram Dedicated To Tracking Down And Exposing Ugly Shoes

‘Crimes Against Shoemanity’ is an Instagram account dedicated to tracking down and exposing these almost objectively ugly shoes. It includes everything from a pair of pink patent strappy sandals that have molar teeth glued to them to stilletos that appear to be made of human skin. Its description reads like the intro of Law & Order: ‘In the criminal justice system, shoe-based offences are considered especially heinous. These are their stories’. The account is run by London-based Rebel Royale, a self-described ‘child of the ’90s and appreciator of footwear’. For her, the account started from a stomach-turning emotion. ‘When I see an ugly shoe, it makes me feel personally attacked’, writes Royale. ‘But this feeling has somehow manifested in fascination’.
