The Art of Footwear: 31 Weird Shoes You Won't Believe
March 28, 2013
A cool exhibition on display right now at the Grassi Museum in Leipzig, Germany features over 200 shoes, many of them one-off exclusives that are works of art — a few designed for celebrities and most meant to "challenge traditional notions of shoe design." According to a press release: The special relationship which exists between people and shoes – and in particular women and shoes – is a popular source of fascination. The mystical attraction they exert is felt not only by the female of the species, but also to an increasing extent by designers and artists who are thinking ‘outside the shoebox' and falling head over heels for footwear.
