Now, as you know, I'm all about suffering for art and fashion. I've been known to suffer through the irritating pain of an underwire bra, the uncomfortable squeeze of snug fitting jeans, and the acute agony of pumps, to look dazzling. It's fashion. I'm willing to make some sacrifices for fashion.
But, these shoes put a whole new spin on all of that. The shoes, which are a collaboration between artist Leanie van der Vyver and Dutch shoe designer René van den Berg, and serve as a commentary on today's impossible standards of beauty, as they appear to be backwards on the woman's feet below.
I get it. The way we see beauty is backward and all that.
But, couldn't their point have been made say with diverse models, bold color choice, or just smaller shoes?
