I would wear these every day. In every color.

Love. Love. Love everything about this. These are my favorite.

The banana, the slide, and the sling-shot are my favorites. And the stretching cat! I love cats.

(I am obliged to tsk about all the leather… Okay, done.)

I don't even like shoes, and these were great!

If you want a vision of the future, picture a heel stomping on a glans forever.

Awww, they do mate for life. (and they should be doing it in my closet.)

Not your grandfather's duck shoes!

What a fun post! I do so love a witty shoe. Not sure I'd wear them out, but the concept of this pair was my favorite.

What?! Those shoes are insane! I'd totally buy them!

or, if you prefer, a foot stomping on a supine woman... forever.

Yeah, the body ones make me a little uncomforable (in an arty kind of way) but I would totally wear any of those bird shoes, the slingshots, the Olive Oyls, the slides... I guess any of them other than the body parts.

I like football, and porno, and books about war. I drink single-malt whiskey and eat ribeye steaks, bloody rare. I jerk off to Russ Meyer movies and watch youtube videos about off-road vehicles and semi-automatic weapons.

I just wanted that all on record before noting that omigod these shoes are fabulous!

The gum one is awesome!

(Is no one going to make a joke about "fuck me" pumps?)

Great shoes, great link! Thanks!

Seriously want the slides and the bananas. Are these shoes just art, or are they available for purchase? Any more info on this guy than is posted in his sidebar?

Mchelly: Are these shoes just art, or are they available for purchase?

Dunno, and I'm mad to know, too. Starting to lean towards "designer vaporware". The only pair being worn out of all the shots I saw could easily have been photoshopped (the gumshoe).

I love the Mallards!

Wait till that shoe fetishist on Street Boners has a look at these! Meantime I actually like some of them, although heels are not my thing . . .

Looks to me like the kind of over the top decadence a society shows right before the collapse. Dance through the ashes in style!

I'm kind of mad at the world right now and those made me smile, a lot. So, thanks.

Some of these look like they could be really cool, but it's hard to tell since the shoes are being displayed without a foot in them. If they don't look good on the foot and display the leg well, they're not very good designs.

Thanks for sharing....these are radical!

They're way better than Shaquille Jordache's crap.

The perfect blend of surreal and shoe heel.

Lady Gaga uses the "Double Boots".

Not sure that answers the question, of course. Unless you are Lady Gaga.

The designs look cool, but until someone can design a fabulous shoe that is also comfortable (i.e., not a contraption of pain or danger to your safety), I'm not impressed.

these shoes are for fetish and it kind of makes me sad.

i have high arches rendering a lot of high and long heels unwearable. the guy has awesome sense of whimsy in his design but by just looking at the sole and heels i can tell these are just for fancy. a pitty because if they were really built for actual women's feet, i'd buy them.

btw, high heels are nothing more but a western approach to foot binding; which renders misogynistic anything having to do with Luboutin and his co-horts, including this guy.

food for thought :P

Relax. Did you think of the others as stomping on a dog or a toucan forever? Of course not. And she's prone, not supine.

These are wonderful. Whimsical and fun yes, but sadly probably not wearable.

I have to say, the shoe entitled "Blow" squicked me out a little too. There is a big difference between a shoe designed with the colors of a bird and a woman with her ass in the air with the lipstick red mouth. But I think you know that.
