Just who, in anything that passes for the remotest glimmer of sanity, would give an award for something that idiotic?

Art?

Design?

BULL!!!!

Some joker just got toked up and said, “Hey, dude, I bet I can get some moron to give me money for these…”

Not going to comment on that E-lax walk she’s got going on there.

Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

It just means it’s expensive.

Nominated for a design award - am certain I saw a headline for winning but ? where that went. Anyhow the artist is “making a statement”. And she’s made more than one pair of shoes ... expectations/hopes of some are that they may be making an appearance in a Lady Gaga musical.

I’ve said it before, and I say it again:  Fashion is a joke.

No exactly McQueen’s in the last photos, but it is not far. It was for V3 and it had poses too.

I’m sooo confused…  I’ve come to grasp a little of the nature of reality and the answer to life, the universe, and everything.  I even have an inkling as to who and what I am. Auuummmmm…
But please, please, who the hell are you?  And why are you trampling my roses?

Well I don’t know what they take to make such things, but it should be banned.

nah, they can’t be REAL shoes. Had to be an “art” design for a gallery showing or something like that. No way in hell would they mass produce those for sale in a shoe store.

No, no!
“From the artistic point of view, it is usually a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months. From the point of view of science, it not unfrequently violates every law of health, every principle of hygiene. While from the point of view of simple ease and comfort it is not too much to say that, with [a handful of exceptions], there is not a single form of really fashionable dress that can be worn without a certain amount of absolute misery to the wearer.”

I wonder if anybody noticed that shoes supposed to “serve as a commentary on today’s impossible standards of beauty.”
From reading the article, I got a feeling that designers didn’t do it for a money (it was a grad thesis project), or for the art sake but to vent frustration of the designer on a fashion industry, which makes normal people feel inadequate because they can’t or don’t wish to conform to standards of fashion/beauty, which are often either too high or too absurd or both. In that role I’m finding those shoes actually to be perfect. A lot of normal people, among which are impressionable teenage girls, will feel inadequate even if they are perfectly normal/healthy/beautiful in non-mainstream way, even in case if standards of fashion/beauty may become something like that sort of harmful, absurd way of walking; some will mutilate themselves just to be “beautiful” but even on those who won’t it may leave a serious impression that they are, in some way, “ugly”

That this design got an award is either deeply ironic (to give a fashion reward to the design that is, basically, anti-fashion) or deeply disturbing (as it was nothing more creative to award). The fact that “The jury applauds the way aesthetics, ergonomics and prosthesis merge into an awkward choreography” looks for me like either they completely missed the point the author was trying to make, or they deliberately ignored it.

No they wouldn’t be for a shoe store ... would be way too many lawsuits!
