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?"

Just in time for the holidays, Sotheby's is auctioning off a pair of bespoke red spiked Christian Louboutin patent leather boots for a mere $20,000 to $30,000. They are literally one of a kind: "The pair of boots will be made to size for the buyer." The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria benefit auction items were picked by Steve Jobs "spiritual partner at Apple" Jony Ive and $968,000 Lockheed Lounge chair designer Marc Newson. Other goods include a $10,000 to $15,000 George Lucas-autographed Stormtrooper helmet in its "original cardboard 'Star Wars' Stormtrooper box."
