Scary/Beautiful: Backwards High Heels Look Painfully Strange

There are a lot of trends nowadays that are beyond strange. I’m sure you’ve seen fashion bloggers posing in oftentimes ridiculous-looking ‘heelless’ shoes, right? One step further than that are shoes with backwards heels.

I kid you not. They actually exist.

Aside from the fact that they look extremely uncomfortable, the shoes are humongous. I don’t know how the model managed to stand, let alone pose, in them because they honestly just look painful to wear. She was probably tiptoeing the whole time. Oh, and in case you were wondering, the model wasn’t able to walk in them  – no, rather, they only allowed her to kind of waddle.

These shoes, aptly called ‘Scary Beautiful’, weren’t made for public consumption though. Rather, they were designed and meant to be perceived as a work of art by Leanie van der Vyver and René van den Berg.

In their own words, the duo explain: “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.”
