It's no secret that I'm an ardent fan of Irregular Choice's weird and wonderful footwear. Slightly less well-known is the fact that I adore gnomes. Yup. I long for a garden so that I can fill it with tacky sculptures of jolly wee men, there to supervise my weeding and digging and listen to my rants about the neighbours' children/dog/all-night parties.
So, it figures that I am COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY in love with these Chuckles shoes, doesn't it? Look how cheery the gnome is! He's saving you from falling over and breaking your neck! Hero.
However. I know some people hate gnomes (WHATISWRONGWITHYOU?) and there are even some who are gnomophobic (real thing). I concede, therefore, that these shoes aren't going to meet with universal approval, so I offer them up today for a round of Cute or Creepy. But first, let's just sit back and watch Chuckles at work.
From the front, the shoes are all lovehearts and polka dots and patent leather. There's no hint of the shenanigans going on behind. I think that makes me love them all the more.
LOOK AT HIM!
Chuckles is available in black or maroon, but you'll need to be quick if you want a pair - sizes are selling out fast. They're £99 and you'll find them online or in one of Irregular Choice's stores in Brighton, London, Leicester or Manchester.
What sayest thou? Are you a friend or a foe of Chuckles the gnome? Is he unbearably cute, or unbelievably creepy?
