Oh…awesome. Now I know what tonight’s nightmare fuel is. THANKS BOING BOING

“That’s it, that’s every pair of shoes in the shop! …unless you want to try The Cruel Shoes…”


#4

Pity they added the extra spur above the heel. This would be more surreal and thus even more disturbing if it weren’t there.


#5

“Or, if you don’t like those, we have Vibram Five Fingers”

“. . . actually, can I see the skin heels again?”


#6

The level of squick this produces is impressive. They’re truly magnificent.


#7

Oh no no no! You put little LEDs on the tips just in case nobody notices. Or a little motor and fishy fins.

Or …, or …

I see fashion gold here. You only have to get _any _ Kardashian to wear them once.


#8

Not ‘frightening’, just fugly.


#9

“The shoe is like when you are going to Chanel to get a wedding dress… The starting rate for the thigh-high is $10,000.”

Finally - a product every woman can relate to.

SiliconE, dammit.

IKR?
(Or the SNL skit would have been about Conheads!)


#14

wow, I never heard that before and had to google it


#15

Do they sell them in everyone’s skin color? Should you be allowed to wear ones that don’t match your own color?


#16

They would be in the uncanny valley without those plexiglass pieces, they ruin it for me.


#17

it’s on his album “comedy is not pretty,” i believe.


#18

Kind of weird how that gradient map starts out all mineral, but rapidly progresses to food items


#19

They should have been made to look like a thick layer of horn or hoof or something. Unless “devil woman on a pedestal” was the real message?


#20

Rosemary’s baby, all grown up and sprouting high-heeled feet.
