My mom forwarded me these pics. The email was titled The latest craze in Japan. I know what you're thinking " too bad they don't come in purple." I thought the exact same thing. I have no idea who the designer is, but I wish did. If you happen to have a pair in your closet could you check who the designer is? She, or he, deserves some serious props for the engineering skills used to design such a marvel. Seriously, it is pretty awesome that the designer did take a big risk in these shoe designs. This is definitely Project Runway "out of the box" type of thinking. I appreciate and admire that.
Having said that, I do believe the model is taking a bigger life threatening risk in wearing the shoes. I would be curious to see the full pic. I imagine the model holding on to a rope or pole with beads of sweet pouring down from her pained expression face. All the while her feet look ever so graceful.
