Being that I am from Texas, all my childhood memories of the beach revolve around Galveston, Texas. That means Gulf of Mexico water as dirty as a mud puddle, and sand roughly the temperature of the surface of the Sun.
Designers draw inspiration from their passions and interests, and from random things that catch their eye. The former was probably true for jewelry and shoe designer Nixxi Rose when she came up with this series of to-die-for footwear featuring the likes of the previously seen Iron Shoes (inspired by the hit show Game of Thrones) and the Krueger Heels (which were inspired by – you guessed it – Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger.)
If you love something, wear it. There’s a reason why shirts, sweaters, skirts, caps, and even pants bearing some elements from a movie or TV show sells like hotcakes: its fans just can’t get enough of it.
The relationship might be over. But the memories (or scars) from it will live on. If not in your heart, then in your mind.
I think that can be said in Sebastian Errazuriz’s case, as he drew inspiration from past relationships and ex-lovers for his new series called 12 Shoes for 12 Lovers.
These wedges are made for walking, but you can also just display them for good measure because they look more like collectible works of art than actual footwear.
These Star Wars wedges, for example, feature the most noted characters from the hit franchise, from Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker to Darth Vader and several of his Stormtroopers.
3D printing is changing how people make and build things these days. From printed guns to gowns, the sky’s the limit when it comes to 3D printing. This, you can clearly see, with the shoes that Alan Nguyen of Freedom of Creation has come up with using 3D printing technology.
So these air-conditioned shoes from Chiyoda don’t exactly come with an actual air conditioner, but they’ll have to do for the moment until someone figures out a way to do that. Not like the latter sounds like a very practical idea, but if there’s a market for it, then why not?
Some people try to do so many things and juggle so many relationships at once that they end up failing horribly at most of the things they’re attempting to do. The same thing applies to shoes – at least, to this particular pair by Dolce Vita called the ‘Gypsy Pump.’
A lot of people I know play it safe when it comes to their outfit choices because they don’t think they can pull off the more fashionable or edgy look. But if there’s one thing I learned, it’s that being ‘fashionable’ doesn’t mean you have to totally be out there.
Multipurpose stuff like the Titan Multi Tool Collar and LG Smart Scan Mouse make seemingly ordinary things seem much more useful. But then there are designs like the ThingThong that makes me think twice about cramming too many uses into a certain object.
