Ah, shoes. Many women make sacrifices to wear cute shoes as they can make or break an outfit. If a girl loves a pair of heels, for instance, she will wear them in spite of height, blisters, or pain. I have several pairs of shoes that I should get rid of because they either don't fit and/or are really uncomfortable, but I just can't seem to part with them because they're just so darn cute. So I completely understand sacrificing a little for cute shoes, but what I don't understand is when people wear ugly and uncomfortable shoes. Sure, I've admitted to wearing my Uggs in public, but I do have some standards, and I would never wear any of the following. Here are 10 of the ugliest shoes in history.

Double Boots


These boots, designed by Israeli designer Kobi Levi, were worn by Lady Gaga in her Born This Way video. Not only are they extremely ugly and impractical, but they also look downright painful to wear.

Knee-High Flower Boots

Why anyone thought these knee-high boots designed by Viktor & Rolf were attractive is beyond me. They look like something a 5-year-old girl would make for an art project.
