These shoes are crazy and the video makes me feel really bad .. check it out here
Looks like Halloween has come early! You may have assumed that your chance to be terrified and creeped out was still a couple weeks away, but how wrong you were.
In all its wonder and mind-boggling ways comes the collaboration of artist Leanie van der Vyver and Dutch designer René van den Berg in which they introduce the Scary Beautiful front-heeled shoe. The words “scary” and “beautiful” alone, back-to-back, might already have your stomach and brain twisted up in knots of confusion, but that will surely be solidified after the video.
Meant to be a commentary on physical beauty, the brand justifies their concept by explaining:
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.

@the_future_mrs: I know, right? I think it’s a combination of the music and the creepy, horror-movie walk the model is doing.

Those are just scary, not beautiful at all.

I must say, they embodied their point really well with those shoes. The idea behind them reminds me of this:
Cassandra: Do you think it’s cheap looking like this? Flatness costs a fortune.

*edit* – i wouldn’t call them scary or beautiful – i’d call them stupid…. stupid and ugly!

Am I the only one who just felt “meh”? I think they’re trying too hard to make it a commentary on things, or rather they were pushing too hard for me to have the opinion they wanted me to. That wasn’t scary, any more than a teen stomping along carelessly in 6 inch heels. She could hurt herself, and I have a mild concern for that, but ultimately, it’s her call to wear it and her fault if she gets hurt.
