Scary Shoes - Weird Shoes

Scariest Shoes of All Time

Stephen D. Lasday, DPM Podiatrist Sarasota and Bradenton

I’ve seen a lot of shoes I would consider scary…flip-flops with absolutely no support or heels so high that that no human being should be able to walk in them—I’ve seen them all. Or so I thought.

I think found a pair of shoes that tops them all.

Have a look at this video…

Speechless. Well, not really…

These are from an exhibit in 2012 called Scary Beautiful and was a collaboration between Leanie van der Vyver and Dutch shoe designer René van den Berg.

According to van der Vyver, these shoes are based on the idea that “people are never satisfied with how they look.” This project was an exploration of “what lies beyond perfection” and designed to create a dialogue about the unrealistic ideals of the beauty and fashion. Wow…that’s a lot to ask from a pair of shoes.

I  think it is safe to say these shoes are well beyond the realm of perfection and into the realm of diabolical. While I do appreciate the message of trying to reach beyond the current rigid standard of beauty, perhaps shoes that aren’t going to cripple individuals is a better approach? 🙂
