Much like Shoesense, I am sometimes baffled by the exhorbitant prices charged for designer shoes. Innovative design may count for something, and quality of materials, sure. But there’s a ceiling. Or there should be. And then there are the shoes that break that ceiling with the giant numbers following those currency symbols.
The Zoe, designed by Christian Werner, a German industrial designer.
Yes, this shoe is handmade. Yes, it is made of high grade aluminum. Yes, it is light and airy and a design that (if not really brand new) shows a good deal of innovation and creativity.
But when it’s on, it looks a bit like stripper wear.
And it costs $3,940!
Consider me baffled.
