Classic shapes, repulsive beauty and stunning creativity in footwear.
Welcome to Shoe Pr0n.
You won't find any dainty strappy numbers, flip flops, or gladiator sandals here. If you think Uggs or Crocs are acceptable forms of footwear, we probably won't get along. There are a million shoe blogs out there, but as this one is curated by me it is obviously going to be full of fabulous things.
As many of you probably know by now, I’m a shoe designer and shoemaker as well as a shoe blogger. It just so happens that I’m the middle of prototyping some of my designs, and helping a class of students learn the art of shoemaking. So please forgive the slight delay in additional Shoe Pr0ns, and trust that I will have some awesome stuff to show you soon!
Zaha Hadid and United Nude- two of my go-to names for good design have teamed up to create this impossible shoe.
Made of vinyl rubber, fiberglass, and leather, this shoe is truly original. Hadid has used her architectural magic to find the perfect angle that makes the shoe appear to float. It almost looks like it couldn’t possibly balance. Yet it does. Science fictional design!!
I’d like to point out that I look exactly like those shoe designers when I’m working. I sit at a completely neat desk and thoughtfully tie lacy ribbons around my lasts, while sporting a fitted dress and cat eye glasses.
