Try These On....



Yesterday I told you about the fashion exhibit at the Phoenix Art Museum featuring designs by Iris van Herpen.  Today I have a selection of shoes that were in the exhibit.  These were all made by a 3-D Printer.


























I really do love a nice pair of shoes but, these are down-right scary!  I'll leave these unique designs to the flamboyant rock stars of the day.  There are a few I could see wearing these.

It was an interesting show that I enjoyed seeing.   It's important to think of the pieces as art and try not to think of them as something to be worn.

I am amazed to see these creations and think that they are made by 3D printers!

I am fond of shoes, amazing what they can print with a 3D-printer nowadays. It makes unusual shoes for popstars maybe? :)

Interesting. I wonder if they COULD be worn? What are they made of?

Oh my aching feet!

I don't think anyone could walk too far in these, Sharon. They look like cartoon shoes don't they?

Art it is! Too painful to contemplate wearing.

Some of them have more of a sci-fi vibe to them.

I absolutely agree Sharon. You have to look at these shoes as pieces of art. I would enjoy seeing these more than some of what they try to pass of as art 😀😀

Nice to look at, but, can you even walk with these shoes?

For art display only, do not attempt to wear these on your feet. :)
Interesting to see but that is about it.

In this case, they are really "3-Dumb Printers." Yikes. These are simply a waste of material and space. And that's the truth! :)

I love to see people walking with these kind of shoes because usually the clothing part goes with it.
