For most of us, shoes are just another thing we have to own, like light bulbs or a tooth brush. They serve their purpose, keeping our feet safe from all the hazards of the world, and that’s as far as it goes. I think about my shoes maybe once a year, when the soles have completely fallen away.
But there are those who look at shoes not as a necessity, and not even as a fashion statement, but as an actual work of art. The kind of shoes that a fashion designer comes up with seemingly only to see what they can trick a model into wearing on the catwalk. Here are 15 of the craziest shoes that are guaranteed to get you a disapproving look from your podiatrist.
1. Something’s fishy
At least no one will notice your foot odor problem.
2. Goat hooves with golden revolvers for heels.
I don’t know what drugs the person was on when they came up with this, but I need to try some.
3. Tarantula Time
For the stripper who wants to bring her pets to work.
4. Extra-strength arch supports
That sound you hear is 1,000 chiropractors’ heads exploding.
5. The Scream
To be fair, if shoes actually did come to life, they would have a look of constant horror on their faces.
6. The Boombox
Pssh. Come find me when you invent shoes that can play my Spotify playlists.
Must be frustrating having your shoes fall apart each time you take a step.
8. A terrible thing to do to a goldfish.
Let’s hope that’s beer.
9. Are those…urinals?
To me the weirdest part is the photo showing these shoes in action. Are they marketing to people who have affairs?
10. Mopping up
Your floors will ALWAYS be clean.
11. The Unwearables
“Once you break them in they’ll feel more comfortable.”
12. Nailed it
These babies were HUGE during the Spanish Inquisition.
13. Did something die in here?
14. Just a couple abstract sculptures on your feet.
This is the first and last time Salvador Dali was allowed to design a pair of shoes.
15. They’re like stilettos, but stabbier.
Someone played footsie with her one too many times.
