Shoe Bizarre

So thanks to a great tip, I have entered the extraordinary world that is the Virtual Shoe Museum. It features all kinds of amazing, unique, or just plain crazy shoe designs and artwork. Here are some of my favorite of the most, um, intriguing so far.

Witty Titties
by Kenneth Kirschner
What could be better than wooden clogs shaped like breasts? Wooden clogs shaped like breasts with a nipple piercing of your choice, duh! I'm pretty sure the website says you can substitute the piercing for a tattoo. Although I bet he would let you get both if you're feeling extra rebellious.

by Masashi Kawamura
"The inspiration came from my childhood memory of when
I loved wearing emptied tissue boxes as a pair of shoes."
I mean, come on, who didn't do that? Now we can live out
our childhood dreams in a more durable fashion!

Dildo Shoe
by Michael Brown
Ahahaha, so this one is pretty self-explanatory. Although,
it does give a whole new meaning to the phrase 'foot fetish'.

The website also goes on to explain, "The selfmade heel is
in high quality resin. So if need be...the heel can be used..."
Um, how convenient?

Nervous Digitorum
by Eelko Moorer
"Boot with veins" or "boot with a nasty leg shaving incident."
Either way, I'm into it!

Bat Shoes
(also) by Eelko Moorer
These bad babies can latch onto the hand rails in subway cars.
Apparently, the designer came up with them while pondering
how to liven up boring and similar journeys.
I like the idea of doing something that gives a person a sense
of relief and can cheer up lives."
Sick of that monotonous everyday commute? Bored on the subway?
Just slip on your Bat Shoes and hang out in style!

These next five fascinating designs were all created by Kobi Levi.
"When I design a shoe I think about it as a sculpture to wear, an art piece you live with. You and your body affect its look and it affects yours. Footwear should have its life with and without being on the feet, on the contrary to cloths that exist only when being worn."

I'm not really sure why it's named 'Miao'. Maybe that's
another way to say "meow", but I'm not actually sure if
these shoes are supposed to be cats or some sort of chihuahua?
Either way though, these shoes have tails, and I'm pretty
much down with anything that can give me paw prints.

Platform sandals or melting grocery baskets?

Tongue Shoe
Alright guys, open up and say, "Aaahhhh."

Rollercoaster Shoe
Amusement for everyone!

Chewing Gum Shoe
Relive that embarrassing moment all day in these sweet
high-heeled tennis shoes!

And now for some genius shoes I would actually wear in a heartbeat...if I weren't so broke(n hearted).

2in1 Zipper (Nat-2)
by Stephen Yeung & Sebastian Thies
Not only are they chock full of zippers and a great color
combination, but these high-tops are also (surprise!) sandals!
Now we can hike or ride our bikes or play basketball all the
way to the beach and 'ziiiiiiip! tada!' we are ready for a more
relaxing, breathe-easy shoe, ready to be kicked off at a moment's
notice once we get that urge to sink our toes in the mud or
have a splash fight with our beach partner!

Animal Shoes
by Machupicchu
Beautiful shoes in fine crafted leather that have ears, and eyes,
and puppy dogs? Finally, my prayers have been answered.

And then there are these...

Jersey Boot
by Daphne Bikker
Whoever told her to sew her dad's old sweatshirt arms to her
mom's pumps needs a good, swift kick in the butt with
Michael Brown's aforementioned Dildo Shoe.
