Religious love to find Jesus, Mary, even Satan himself in inanimate objects, don’t they? In the latest edition of “boy, that’s a stretch,” a religious group on Facebook is calling on its users not to “get caught up in their rituals” in response to the release of the Reebok x Maison Margiela Tabi Decortique fashion shoe.
The reasoning behind their little tiff was described on the band’s Facebook page, Prophecy News, which suggested the front of the shoe is split into two halves, making the foot look like a clog rather than a shoe. typical. Since hooves are naturally only found on goats or Satan.
“Reebok’s new sneakers have Baphomet goat feet. The rulers of this world are showing more and more openly and clearly who they worship. Be sure to open your eyes and don’t get caught up in their rituals.
The split design of the shoe is a trademark of designer John Galliano, who previously worked with French luxury fashion house Maison Margiela with similar designs.
Since the scope of my fashion is black t-shirts and denim, I’ll let the folks at fashion site Highsnobriety explain:
“Decortique uses figurative cut shapes to symbolize gaps in the organized imagery we are constantly surrounded by, highlighting identifiable features rooted in our collective memory and stimulating our visual recognition.”
You know what I see when I look at these shoes? I see the tabi shoes worn by the Japanese. I don’t necessarily see Baphomet. But still, don’t threaten me with having a good time, you religious fanatics!
But do you know what makes these shoes particularly diabolical? It costs a whopping $595. Now that’s the devil’s job. – especially considering the fact that they were probably created by children in a sweatshop.
