Excuse me for asking, but when did “fashion” get switched with “children’s playclothes”??? Those shoes are crazy! I would laugh my head off if I saw someone wearing those.

Jasette on

I love Marc Jacobs but Im afraid of mice lol…….. So I wouldnt wear them.

Elda on

I’m not sure if i would wear a pair shoes like these but i love cats, i have a cat named Paulie and she just turned 16 in May. I adore my baby, she is my best friend in the world!

Elda on

p.s. i thought they were kitty shoes, my fault.

laci on

those are ugly. why would a person wanna wear a pair of shoes with a face and ears.

I think they’re cute. They’re meant to be somewhat humorous, so people who take their fashion too seriously couldn’t wear these without looking ridiculous. But if you have fun with fashion, the shoes are workable for you.

They would make cute slippers…. if only the price were a little cuter!

Those have got to be the cutest shoes I have ever seen. And it’s no surprise that their from Marc Jacobs. I love them.

Rose on

Those are so adorable! I want them big time. They are a great spin on animal print flats.


these r adorable!!!!
i wud totaly luv 2 wear them… xept that they cost so much

Joanne on

Yeah I would wear them…if I was a child!!!!!

ucokaty on

i think they are SO UNIQUE! i would love to wear them with some cute dark jeans and a tight tee! They are such a convo piece! i love wearing special stuff that not everyone has, i just wish they were a little less pricey…. but then again EVERYONE would probably have them soon. :)

No the very thought of having a rodant on my foot makes me quiver. They would be perfect for a little girl who owns a rodant or just generally love animals.
My opinion: Better for the playground.

Vanillabear on

ummm hmmm well those r cute but only if ur the right kinda person. i agree with Vivian. if u take fashion too seriously, u would look totally ridiculous in them! but they would look cute with a pair of jeans and a comfy tee and blazer.

Cristina on

Yes, I would! they are so cute! :)

Cee on

They’re adorable!!

I’d wear them if i had the money. :p

I’m all for fun, whimsical fashion (at the right time and place), but SERIOUSLY!!!????!!! I usually love most everything by Marc Jacobs, but MOUSE ballet flats?!?! What is he thinking? Even on a little child, these would look awful. I’ve seen ladybug tennis shoes for toddlers, but those were cute. The whiskers & “ears” on these just take it above and beyond ridiculous. Please, hopefully Marc Jacobs is just going through a phase. And let it be over, soon!

IMO the price is too much, I think if we all were interested in shoes like these would could purchase our own stuff and make our own style of shoes by using a glue gun, LOL.

I think these shoes are cute, but I think they’re more suitable for children. I love ballet flats and animal prints, but I wouldn’t wear these personally. I guess if you like to have fun with your fashion and aren’t afraid to take fashion risks then you would be the person to wear these.

My friend has these in black, which I think are a bit more wearable and subtle than these printed ones, but nevertheless I think they’re really cute and different. Marc Jacobs always comes out with quirky things, I love it.

Veronica B. on

if I was 5!

Lilia on

Okay, am I the only person to notice that these mouse shoes have black and white spots like a COW?!? Mice do not have spots! Marc Jacobs does not know animals. Even a child knows that this pattern is found on cows, not mice.

Jan on

I saw these at Macy’s and tried them on. The are super cute with jeans! I like the solid black ones a lot better than the patterned one though. Super comfy too!

julie on

they loook like mice…my little girls would love them…not an adult

Mary on

This isn’t really a “new” thing–I saw these Marc Jacobs shoes over a year ago, but they were in white, which is more appropriate for a shoe called “Mouse” :)

The price is a bit hefty, but they are Marc Jacobs shoes after all. The ears and whiskers provide a whimsical touch that I like, so I’d wear them.

Those are cute……. I think only like a 12 year old could wear those though, anyone else would look like a total freak.

lee lee on

I would ONLY wear them w/o the ears and face!
