Steeping Out – Bizzarre Shoes
As a fashion blogger, I like to surf around the web and visit different sites to see whats out there, and let me tell you, what’s out there is a lot. During my hunting trips through the forest of fashion content available online, nothing has perplexed and intrigued me more than odd shoes. Remember this piece I did called “Artistic Footwear” when the blog first started? I realized that I haven’t focused on shoes in a while so behold, dear reader, my end of year round-up of the most breathtaking, jaw dropping, and craziest shoes I could find around the web.
Iris Schieferstein’s stuffed dove shoes
German artist Iris Schieferstein has managed to horrify and mesmerize audiences with these sandals made out of real doves. The artist has used animals as raw materials in her art work for years, and gives a whole new meaning to taxidermy.
Aphrodite Project GPS Alert Platform Shoes
The slogan of these platforms is “Helping sex workers protect themselves.” The shoes have an alarm clock that will ring to ward off potential attackers, built-in GPS, and an area to store away keys, money, and other items.
Finn Stone’s LEG-GO Stilettos
Designed for last year’s Affordable Art Fair in London, these completely wearable pumps will run you about $2,600 in debt. Currently the stilettos aren’t available for commercial purposes, but rumor has it that if you contact the artist directly, he is willing to create a custom one for you.
