FC Barcelona: Frightening Footwear

The advent of footballers on Twitter has given us both good and bad emotions. They’ve made us laugh, they’ve made us angry, and they’ve made us go, “say whaaaa?”
Barcelona defender/resident hotness Gerard Pique is usually in the “say whaaaa?” category. This week he gave us a special treat by tweeting photos of some truly heinous kicks worn by his teammates.
The leopard print Christian Louboutin sneakers (above) belong to none other than David Villa. We never pegged our favorite bitchfacer as a leopard kicks wearing kind of guy. A DSquared2 belt buckle homie, but, not these. Never these.
These shoes are either hideous or fabulous; there is no middle ground here.
Do you give David credit for wearing something different? Or (like us) wish he would stick to footwear that you can’t pet?
Oh, but wait – it gets better.
Is it even legal to wear these monstrosities in public for fear of blinding motorists and pedestrians alike? We suppose they could be useful if you’re without a mirror and think you have the contents of your lunch salad stuck in your teeth.
Ger has not let us know who the owner of these disco balls with laces are yet, but we are waiting with baited breath and will let you know as soon as it is blasted to the Twitterverse. It is not David Villa, thankfully.
Side note: No, El-Hadji Diouf has not made a surprise transfer to Barcelona, but we expect him to purchase these within the hour.
