One of my favorite places to take visitors in Philly is the so-called “Ghost Structure,” built where Ben Franklin’s house used to stand. As you can see, it’s a pretty neat idea, a symbolical structure outlining the shape of things past:
For some reason, that structure popped to mind when I recently saw these 6-inch wedges from Giuseppe Zanotti:
Just the outline of a proper shoe, if you ask me–a neat idea taken to extremes and which had better stayed applied in architecture only. It’s like someone cast a Ridiculus! spell over a proper wedge, making it hollow, dangerous to walk in, and forehead-creasingly expensive ($750).
