NYFW Special Edition Shoe Envy: Homo Consummatus

The Homo Consummatus show was larger than life, with giant models on a surreal film, interacting with their live model counterparts, only reaching knee high on the film version. Though the models never walked the full catwalk (it was more like a stage setup) I could feel the sheen of these enormous, curvy platforms from the distance. Backstage I got a closer look at the shoes for which I’m experiencing some serious envy.


These booties are made for walking. From touching them, I know the inner soles are cushioned and the leather is smoothly supportive. These are the kinds of 7-inchers you can jog in.

I impart my daily love of light layering, thick-as-thieves platforms and undiscovered fashionable gems. I love to turn a phrase, and in truth I'm a designer at werq.
