Okay, now that I can see these shoes up close, I have a different opinion. I really don't care for the print. They look like a crocodile texture with designs airbrushed on to them. I am sure that they were expensive, but to me, they look cheap. I also think that they aren't shoes. They look like boots.

Maybe they really are some sort of skin which makes them even More unattractive, imho. And they certainly do appear to be boots of some kind. Certainly not my taste At All. Thumbs down....

This is just one of those time when the outfit bored me; but I really dont like the accessories. I dont like the style or design of the shoes, and the scarf here is boring. Sorry, but thats how I see it!

I just saw those shoes much closer and they are really ugly.It reminds me of the cowboys' boots from far West...How did she do that?Even the peep-toe platforms are better than these.

These are like "booties" - laced up brogues.
The material looks like snake skin - there is a slight platform on the sole.
Not very pretty - the snake skin looks kind of creepy.

You are so right, Iakynthi! They do look like cowboy boots (and very tacky ones at that).

What a great comparison, iakynthi, "Cowboy boots from the far West" !! LOL. Are you really from Greece? Not too sure about the peep-toe platforms being better, however, but you do have a point! Love your comment....

Well seems that we are unanimous that we would just love to either buy Letizia a whole new shoe collection, or burn all shoes she has bought in the last year! (lol)

And yes, that was a great comparison!

Which do we do first? Buy or Burn Baby Burn!! LOL. :) I'm up for either one, marmi. Too bad it won't make a bit of difference what we mere mortals think..but we can pretend. sigh...

Ugly and cheap looking shoes. They look like a pair Britney Spears has in her closet.

I agree, but I am still dumbstruck by the hideous snake boots!

I'm very disappointed in Leti.. She's a princess.. Wear elegant shoes! I hate her thick peep-toe platform ones.. It looks very cheap and not inappropriate..

That's too much!I can't be lenient anymore.She needs to hire an expert and not an expert in the latest trends(there are millions of those today...) but an expert in "royal-looking" outfits and accessories.Immediately...lol

I couldn't agree more, iakynthi! By the way, this is what she wore to the Prince if Wales 60th birthday party given by the Queen at Buckingham Palace. :(

Maybe one of us should write an job application to HRH.
But on the other side I'm wondering why Queen Sofia don't ask to dress more royal

I'm qute unsure if I should make a job application, or if I should send a pair of appropiate shoes to Letizia (I've seen 2 days ago a very nice pair of evening shoes by Pedro Garcia, a spanish designer)

Oh no, I think she likes that kind of shoes and thinks it matches her outfits.
She just needs someone who tells her, that most of the time she looks from the knees downward like a pole-dancer or a tacky Hollywood-actress, and from the knees upward like a dowdy clothes stander, but not tad what a future queen should look like.
And that's the job of a assistant, or a stylist! To teach the "client" what to wear, and whats a no-no.

I think she had someone in the beginning of her marriage, but she/they sacked that (lady?) person, to spend the money, or because she had another opion than L. ....., it's a pity, she looked so nice, well-dressed and royal back than.
