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.
Kenzo has its eye on you. And you. And you.
A two-designer label launched in 2004 and based in Berlin, Miroike is the artchild of Ulrike Seidel and Ramiro Calderoan. The two studied under Dame V. Westwood, and their deconstructionist attitude towards footwear is a wonderful nod to her aesthetic sensibilities.
Until recently I hadn’t heard of them, but I’ll be keeping an eye on their work from now on.
Tied, strapped, punched.
Chelsea Paris. Tied in a knot and shielded. The shoe that artfully conveys stress. ;)
Super high-heeled shoes in Exotique magazine, 1950s.
Sliced and prepped for surgery.
These are perfect.
Hints of color on the edges, oversized decorative buckles…. These are cartoons of shoes.
I love them.
The hidden platform inside the boot is the only reason you could walk in this. See the slight shadow of a heel shape on the red leather? I suspect there is a built up internal wedge, otherwise the lack of flexibility in the heady platform would make it impossible to do anything short of shuffle.
