Fashion isn’t for everyone. And as it turns out, even by fashion’s standards, top brands are not for everyone as well. You need to have a certain something to pull some of the unconscionably hideous items off.
The iconic French fashion house Balenciaga has earned itself a name in the industry for brave fashion choices. But when the company debuted a pair of square-toed mules, they proved to be a bit too wacky for their fans – and many compared them to McDonald’s french fry cartons. It didn’t take long for the popular fast-food chain to take a shot at the luxury fashion brand’s pair of shoes.
The bright red shoes from Balenciaga’s fall ’18 collection went viral on social media, with a tweet that was shared over 50,000 times. Some users referred to them as the McBalenciagas or the McSlides. Now McDonald’s is roasting the slip-on style shoes.
In a photo posted on Instagram, McDonald’s Sweden appears to make fun of the Balenciaga shoe for their questionable fashion choice. They posted a picture of a person wearing a signature red french fry box like a shoe.
The Balenciaga shoes were originally priced at $530. Believe it or not, they are currently sold out, which is probably the reason why McDonald’s is thinking of making their own version and turning the carton shoes into reality.
The caption read:
“If we get 103,042 likes we release these for real.”
The account then added the hashtag #Trendsetter.
Considering the photo was posted two weeks ago and only has some 28,000 likes, it seems unlikely the threshold will be reached.
Meanwhile, this is not the first time that a high-end fashion brand has released statement pieces which spark associations. Balenciaga has previously launched a bag worth of $2,145 with a striking resemblance to IKEA’s iconic Frakta tote bag which, in fact, costs thousands of times less – only 99 cents.
