Well, we certainly know what's wrong with those - ahem! - shoe things, but what is wrong with the designer?

My gosh...

 

Wait'll the Osteopath,Neurologist,Back Dr,Masseuse,you name it, send the bills in 25 yrs time. (I still rue the wearing of those gorgeous black patent 4" heels....but it was a good party!)

Very intriguing. Reminds me a little of the Chinese foot-binding. Scary, not beautiful. Still, I can't stop thinking about it. Who from the past would have ever foreseen that women today would teeter around on platform stilettos? I thought those were bad, now this? Just crazy! I wish someone with a fashion design background would weigh in.

Edit: I should have said that the model's hobbling reminded me of the shuffling of the foot-bound (been reading Lisa See). Of course, the model can unbuckle herself and walk away. I realize that foot-binding of Chinese girls was a horrendous and painful procedure that thankfully is no longer practiced.

Now that was scary... I think she had them on backwards! lol

They might possibly be useful in a Sci-Fi movie, but I think those medical bills will be pouring in at the end of day one!

Um, was that supposed to be serious? Reminds me of a Saturday Night Live skit. keep in mind, I watched without the sound, so I really have no idea what the narration was.

Fantastic parody.

Yes, Carmen:

Truth be told, I laughed until I had tears in my eyes! Hilarious parody, but then at times my sense of humor has a "Gary Larsen type" perspective.

My reaction to it was the same as any time I witness someone clop, clop, clopping around in heels.

I guess I'm the only one who took it seriously. (!!) I read some comments about these shoes online, and a few women said they would actually wear them. If so, I imagine they'll eventually go the way of the bump dress. Way too crazy for real life.

Patricia -- the ones who say they'd wear them are likely the same ilk that are on the toe surgery list -- I hear 'toe tucks' are not uncommon in the 'gee -- I need to be even more *off center' league ;)


*literally -- the wobbling/hobbling gait of the high heeled.

Wow! I can't believe how far toward idiotic people are willing to go. I don't wear platform or stiletto heels or any of that crap. I don't care what is in fashion. I dress for comfort and practicality.

Women couldn't seriously wear those to the office, but as performance art they're something to see.

I've always admired sharp women who can scurry around in high heels and look great doing it. It takes talent and stamina. Also, look at Beyonce. Super-high heels, complicated dance steps, running back and forth across the stage, dancing up and down stairs (sure, sometimes falling) but that's why she's making the big bucks!

It also depends upon what you're doing. If you're on stage singing, and you can pull it off, great. If you're on your feet all day shooting photos, not a really good idea. When I was in dancing all you had to do was get used to making the steps in the heels.

Still, K -- the video you shared is innovative & thought provoking.

I actually really liked the design. I also thought it was awesome performance art!! Powerful and really well done.
