Not haute couture by any means, but it's fashion.

It is also art. Who thr hell are you to say what art is? :BigGrin3:

The ugliness is deliberate I guess.

It's actually the point. I've always thought crocs were ugly to begin with. This is just underlining the ugliness.

Are they wearable, mass produced and popular? If yes, then no.

Otherwise yes, provided those are normal shoe sized. I get no sense of scale from that photos.

If normal shoe sized but hideously uncomfortable. Then it's art either way.

If megalithic, then yes. Unless it contains habitable space, in which case it may be artistic but is properly architecture.

HTH. :)

"Hideously uncomfortable" (well said, Abdul, well said) is a mainstay of contemporary art. Pleasing the bourgeois being a cardinal sin, and all that.
