Last night, fashion editors, bloggers, buyers and Rihanna took a Dior ferry trip to Brooklyn for the brand's Cruise 2015 runway show. There, Dior continued its confounding tradition of showing incredibly ugly shoes with very pretty clothes. This unfortunate style caught the eye of the writers at The Fashion Spot, who seem to think that it might signal the end of the ugly-chic shoe craze, calling them "abominable."

The pair in question have a sneaker-like footbed and a patterned fabric upper. As one person commented on Elle Mexico's Instagram, "Definitivamente NOOOOO! Horribles." You don't need to speak Spanish to know what that means.
