We all have seen those totally rediculous shoes on fashion runways. As bad as McQueen Armadillo and other shoe creations are, I have to say these shoes, a collaboration between artist Leanie van der Vyver and Dutch shoe designer René van den Berg are the worst of the worst.
Apparently they were designed to be a commentary on today's impossible standards of beauty more than intended as functional shoes (though a pair was sent to Lady Gaga by the designers). Watching the video below, they look painful! The "heel" actually extends from the front with the foot straight down ballet style putting the model into an awkwardly contorted position to try to walk in them. I could see them used in some Hollywood monster movie, but otherwise... they are just so wrong!
