Weird Shoes

From The Cut's roundup of the most torturous shoes of all time:

"These metallic leg-cuffs bring the cartoonish features of anime and manga into the real world. The Japanese designer’s futuristic, knee-high hooves may appear flat, but the enclosed stilts’ similarities to a chrome pipe make any ankle movement futile. Occult glamour never did promise comfort or function, did it?"
