Attention all husband hunters, Nine West has a shoe for you.

A recent online ad campaign by the shoe retailer showcased new, off-beat categories for womens' shoes, including "Starter Husband Hunting," and "First Day of Kindergarten." An additional ad released with a woman carrying a Nine West tote bag was titled "Anticipatory Walk of Shame." The advertisements are definitely eye-catching, but many have questioned if Nine West's peculiar new campaign is sexist and in poor taste.
