Do you sometimes wonder if fashion designers are laughing at us? We have proof.
Hold onto your Havianas, because here’s a new type of footwear that will give you nightmares – or at least a good laugh. Behold: the front heel shoe. No, REALLY, they’re a real thing dreamed up by someone who…..well, WTF.
Take a look:
Front heel shoes.
No wait, it gets better (worse). Take a look at this model try to walk in them:
The front heel, or ‘ Crazy Beautiful‘ as it is formally known, is a collaboration between artist Leanie van der Vyver and Dutch designer René van den Berg. This is what the designers had to say about it:
Humans are playing God by physically and metaphorically perfecting themselves. Beauty is currently at an all time climax, allowing this project to explore what lies beyond perfection.
Scary Beautiful challenges current beauty ideals by inflicting an unexpected new beauty standard.
Yeah OK, whatever. For normal people who like to, you know, WALK in their shoes, here are some awesome options from Mamamia Shopping that tick that box.
