Weird Shoes…

Scary-Beautiful

I’m a guy I only vaguely understand high heels, but these just look painful. Imagine being in a constant whatever-the-word-for-when-ballerinas-stand-on-their-tippie-toes-is all the time you wear these shoes… You probably wont fall over, at least not forward, but still that just looks uncomfortable.

They are by Amsterdam based designer  Leanie van der Vyver in collaboration with a Dutch shoe designer René van den Berg according to my source article, although I’m not sure they realise that Amsterdam is also in the Netherlands…

“The user must point their foot to insert into the shoe’s modified vamp which is inclined forward and tapers down to the toebox. ”
“Humans are playing God by physically and metaphorically perfecting themselves. Beauty is currently at an all time climax, allowing this project to explore what lies beyond perfection.
Scary Beautiful challenges current beauty ideals by inflicting an unexpected new beauty standard.”

I’ve said it one and I’ll say it again, that cannot be comfortable, which is my only criteria when buying new shoes. I mean honestly I can’t tell if that girl in the photo up top is trying to look sexy or take a dump… I’m guessing the former, but they have left it open to interpretation.

Portal Sneaker Boots

I’ve always thought that the Converse style “sneaker boots” you can get look cool but I’m not sure I could pull them off, or put them on for that matter as I have calves the size of… Well very big things…

These Portal Sneaker boots by artist Jared Sellers are pretty cool, what is it about adding a little blue and orange to a design and putting the Aperture science logo on things that makes them infinitely cooler? For some reason anything Portal is cool on the internet these days, I’m not about to argue, because my first reaction was “COOL PORTAL SNEAKER BOOTS!” and not “Oh no not another artist trying to rip off Portal” so there you have it…

Sneaker Socks

If you ever can’t decide whether you want to wear shoes of just socks these are the socks for you. They are called “Sneaker Socks” but they look a lot more like Converse calf high boots to me. Anyway this is what they look like when not one, I actually like the fact that they make it look like you are also wearing socks under your boots…

PacMan Dress

It saddens me that I can’t find a source for this dress, I saw it on Pinterest yesterday on my phone and I found it again by Googling for it. But I can’t for the life of me find anywhere that sells it…

What I have managed to find is a while bunch of other PacMan clothing:

The above dresses I found on Geekologie they are apparently part of a line of “Sexy PacMan” dresses available for $32 on 80’s Tees. Personally I’m more likely to be seen wearing this PacMan costume:

Pants Win Prize!

Photographer Michael Dearden won the UK Master Photographer of the Year 2010 prize for the above photo of 38-year-old Angela Lancaster taking her pants off at her wedding. It’s a nice picture, and somehow manages to make her taking her pants off almost classy. The thing is when I showed Avarinne the picture she immediately exclaimed “I have those shoes! Great now everyone is going to have those shoes.”
