There are some remarkable shoes out there that are not made in Japan, so much as I like contributing to the Japanese shoe thread, I don't see why we can't have a thread devoted to amazing shoes from elsewhere.

Leather art, for sure, but unfortunately they appear to be all style and no substance. It is not a practical design. I just can't imagine wearing something like that for very long at all! Sorry. :(
No need to apologise! In Justin Fitzpatrick's article on this, he notes that "wearability" was not a criterion, and he analogises such shoes to concept cars.

Would the horse hoof heel makes me run faster like a horse? How much horse power does it increase?

Seriously, interesting shoes.

Uh, nothing awesome about shoes one wouldn’t wear. Like a car with no engine. My awesome shoes are Carmina, Weston, Lobb.
