    some of those are pretty scary.

  2. Oana

    too bad the guys that did the feet shoes did not consider making hobbit feet shoes

  3. Era

    lol awesome..nice concepts..^_^

  4. Jaqi Mugo

    I love the Lamborgini shoes! I hope they change their mind and make them available! My other favourite are the five finger barefoot sneakers – I want! :D

    The feet shoes, grass sandals and fish sandals are hilarious!

    The heel-less platforms are cool.

  5. eleven

    The Opel shoes and the grass flip flop are great, and even wearable.
    The feet and the barefoot are funny.
    The rancho, the heel-less and the claw look so UNcomfortable!
    And the Converse Extension takes 3 hours to put on.

  6. Laurie

    those talon shoes cannot be good for the feet. some interesting shoes though!

  7. Fred

    I love my Vibram fivefingers, I’ve got two pairs, wear them as much as I can in cold Wisconsin. It truly feels like you’re barefoot when your feet are broken in to them.

    Now if all the hot girls that always ask me about them would be more interested in the rest of me…….

  8. firefly67

    Yowie!! Some of those are downright strange. Maybe not so comfortable either. But I must applaud their makers’ imaginations, at the very least. Moi, I’m just an apprentice cordwainer (shoemaker), still working out the kinks in basic oxford patterning/design. Don’t think I will be making any shoes like these, any time soon. Buffalo moccasins…that’s another story!

  9. Beezy

    i love the car concept shoes! too cute!

    the others are frightening – esp the one’s that look like feet…gross.

  10. Emily

    RANCHO SHOES – Comfortable shape for easy walking? Wha? I hope that was sarcastic. Nice post!

  11. bengky

    good shoes for beautiful foot

  12. ariel

    feet shoes is bad..

  13. Jared

    “Comfortable shape for easy walking”? Hardly. These are classic pony boots, which are a fetish accessory and useless as a real pair of boots.

  15. vivian

    and the “Fish Flip Flops” is weird…

  16. dino
