ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I like that it pokes fun at high heel shoes culture. I couldn’t even imagine being expected to wear these things as my mother was ruining her feet after a few decades with the airlines mostly tending computers.
Fortunately my wife is pretty tall and shapey even without heels so I suppose I found a way to cheat the whole high heel thing, but seriously it is more fun having a partner who can make a run for it if needed than having to carry her over your shoulder.
How does your wife not wearing heels allow YOU to ‘cheat the whole high heel thing’? WTF? That sounds really self-centered. What about HER comfort and happiness? Oh, right- it’s all about her looking good for you (good thing she’s ‘shapey’!/s), not about the health and comfort of her feet. Got it.
Very amusing and creative. I had only seen the bubble gum shoe before. I had no idea he was so prolific.
I love humor and playfulness in design. So much of it can be oppressively serious, with designers taking themselves way too seriously. The “form follows function” crowd seems to overlook the importance of objects that simply delight beyond their apparent use. I am glad there is room in the world for a broad spectrum that ranges from pure function to whimsy.
Do they come in mens sizes?
Those are awesome. It’s really too bad they’re just sculptures.
Seriously. Needs to be manufactured into real shoes.
Fantastically, ridiculously good! Love each and every one he has posted to his blog. Much. Thanks!
The one on the left needs more machete.
