:eek: :confused: :eek:
everyone is of course wellcome to post pictures
Woooooowwwwwww! Love those, where did you find them? I recognized some of the designers--United Nude, for example--but most of them were clearly bizzaro-shoes meant to raise eyebrows. Great finds!!!!

Yeah, I recognize some of them. And some of them are in the fetish footwear post I put up a few weeks back. Like I said there, I love looking at shoes like these for the artistic value of them. They're not about wearability, but instead about the sculpture and shape and creativity of what you can do with footwear.
Here you go.
I found the motherload of weird shoes on the net: the Virtual Shoe Museum. Case in point:
At any rate, you've GOT to see this site. Unbelievable!
I don't even like looking at those wooden things. I'm okay in theory with fetish shoes, and I agree that they're fun to look at, but the wooden ones look just way too punishing and painful. I feel sorry for the model.
Well, this and other shoes were created by a designer named Eelko Moorer and I don't think they were meant to be worn--anywhere. I think of them as a kind of commentary on the state of women's fashion, which often finds it acceptable to torture the wearer with stilettos and other contraptions, but balks at the sight of these "stilts," which, after all, faithfully replicate the position of the foot in a high heel shoe. So I'd take them as a (painful) joke or tongue-in-cheek meditation on the pains of footwear.
