Ellen Sampson


I literally have no words to describe these shoes, apart from wow... I'll try though... Though a nice short post might be just what you want after yesterday's epic Sketchbook one!

They are sculptures, art if you will, rather than just footwear. The black entities confuse and amaze me, I'm not sure which way up they're supposed to go or where to put your feet but these are things that only entices me more.

I haven't been as smitten with a sculptural shoe since Atalanta Weller's beauties. Though, if we're talking normal shoes, I still can't get my thoughts away from Miu Miu's black satin shoes, I need some in my life...

  18. Wow! They're so cool! Though the only solution I see is sticking them to my soles with a bit of superglue...hahaha.

    Take care!

  26. Those are strangely enticing shoes!

    They seem to be designed more to hold fruit than for any practical foot wear purpose though....

    ReplyDelete
  27. Definitely art, first and foremost. I looked at these for a while and still can't figure out how the function...fascinating! I'd love to see what they look like on somebody!

  30. I love shoes as sculpture. I totally agree with you, I cannot figure out how you would wear these though. Maybe industrial strength double sided tape on the soles? :-)

  31. maybe they're weird, but I like them! and I think they're not so hard to walk ;)
