If you think you’ve already seen the most outrageous shoes, you’re wrong! Nothing can compare to the outrageousness of the pair called “Scary Beautiful!” Not any from the famous designers’ collections come close to this. It’s created by Leanie van der Vyver and Rene van den Berg.
Yes it’s scary but beautiful? I don’t think so. First look and you won’t have any idea how exactly it’s worn. By themselves, the shoes don’t give a clue which one is the front and which one is the back. It’s like something that only an alien would dare wear. What you’ll see are two huge heels that give balance.
Scary Beautiful is obviously not meant for everyday use or for special events either. It’s like something that’s only meant to be displayed and looked at otherwise the wearer would only end up with a broken leg or worse, a broken neck!
Walking in “Scary Beautiful” is impossible. A video shows a model trying to walk in them but I could see it’s quite difficult. She couldn’t even straighten up for heaven’s sake! She was hunched as she walked so slowly across the room. That’s not how a normal person is supposed to walk.
This is really the most outrageous shoes I’ve ever seen! But you know what the most curious thing is? Scary Beautiful shoes were nominated for a design prize at Gerrit Rietveld Academie. And according to Barbara Visser the shoes’ design forces “the wearer to develop a new way of walking.” Indeed because with that awkward design there’s no other way. I fervently hope this doesn’t become a trend.
Scary Beautiful? More like Scary Ugly!
