Shoes!

Inspired from toxel’s post and designboom. Seeing all these shoes make me want to go shopping!

First pair designed by Chau Her Lee.

Shoe designed by Chau Har Lee, this shoe doesn't have an ordinary heel if you haven't noticed.

And now, the hoof shoe craze, started by Iris Shieferstein!

Taken from Shieferstein’s website: “For many years, Iris Schieferstein has worked with dead animals as raw material for her pieces of art. She joins the fragments together to new creatures and thus gives a new face to death. No matter, if her arrangements follow paintings of the great masters of art or if the joined objects turn out to be whole words – her work always gives evidence of aesthetic intutition and her inclination to subtle enterntainment.The earlier you die – the longer you are dead.”

Interesting point of view, and I don’t like how dead animals are used, but if you think about it, we all wear shoes made from leather all the time – taken from dead animals brutally. So I guess this isn’t that bad after all.

By the way, Martin Margiela’s website is awesome and it’s NOT under construction!

other hoof shoes by martin margiela, apparently, he has them for all seasons.

And skeletal stilettos by dsquared2! I loved the entire series.

Aand, one of my favorites of all time, Liam Fahy‘s Stormtrooper stilettos, that won him the Fashion Fringe Shoe competition, bagging him a paid internship with Rupert Sanderson.

Last but not least, an interesting interactive shoe that works through an iPhone app, “SHORT ++” (or robotic elevator shoes), created by Adi Marom.
