Maccas Is Trolling These Designer Shoes That Look Just Like French Fry Containers

Luxury designer brand Balenciaga's pair of red leather mules are copping a grilling online for their similarity to fast food chain McDonald's iconic french fry containers.

The bright red 'Square-toe leather mules' came out in 2018 and were sold for more than AU$1,000 at the fancy department store Barneys New York. 

And get this -- according to the New York Times the shoes have since sold out. We certainly can't find them on the Barneys website so it's totally possible.

Thing is, they bear a striking resemblance to the iconic cardboard containers that everyone's fave Maccas french fries come in -- something which did not go unnoticed by people on the internet.

We can totally see the similarities between the two -- the square toe, the flat sole and the trademark Maccas red. All that's missing is the Golden Arches -- come on Balenciaga, step up your game.

It poses the question -- why pay hundreds of bucks for footwear when you can get it free with your Big Mac meal?

Micky D's in Sweden clearly agrees. They weighed in with an Instagram post on February 7 that throws some real shade at Balenciaga's shoes -- or the 'McBalenciaga's as they're now known.

For those who don't speak Swedish, the caption reads: "If we get 103,042 likes we release these for real."

103,042? It's a weirdly specific target number but okay. At this point, Maccas Sweden is still about 70 thousand likes off their target. You know what to do, guys. Get liking.

Remember, kids, Balenciaga is the brand that brought us the following sartorial disasters ... er, we mean, delights -- which are, by the way, not cheap at all.

Platform Crocs

Their platform Crocs -- we can't believe we just typed that -- caused a mini-sensation upon their release in 2018 and unlike their cheap-as-chips inspo, this pink pair will set you back a cool $850.

Ugly 'dad' sneakers

The 'Triple S sneakers' are chunky and ugly and just like what your dad wore in the '90s -- and they cost upwards of $1,000! But it-models like Hailey Baldwin and Bella Hadid do love 'em.

Bootleg jeans

According to the brand's Spring '19 lookbook, our trusty pair of skinny jeans are no longer en vogue -- flared denim is where it's at. Groovy, baby.

The 'T-shirt' shirt

As the name suggests it's a T-shirt and shirt one -- what more do you need? Part of the brand’s Fall '18 collection, it retails for $1,290 -- but you could probs DIY your own.

The Exxy IKEA Bag

And who can forget the $2,145 leather tote bag inspired by IKEA’s iconic 99c Frakta carry bag?
