This is the Most Dramatic Shoe You’ll Ever See
Fashion is all about pushing the limits and trying something new. We have seen a lot of interesting and unique designs this year, but nothing quite compares to the Scary Beautiful shoe.
At the first sighting of this shoe, we thought only two things: 1. Oh my, that looks painful and 2. With what outfit would someone pair this design? That was until we got reading and realized this was much more than a shoe as there is a deep and meaningful message attached.
Van der Vyver is a South African designer who recently graduated from Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. The design and movement of the model in the shoe is meant to evoke your feelings of what beauty really is. Upon watching the video we were in awe and began to drag up the never-gets-old topic of what the media portrays as real beauty.
We don’t suggest trying to make it to the bar in these on a Saturday night (you won’t make it) but we do admire the thought behind the shoe. We hear Lady Gaga already has her hands on these beauties.
“Humans are playing God by physically and metaphorically perfecting themselves.” Fashion for thought? Check out the video below and let us know – beautiful meaning or just bad design?
