Medical aesthetic footwear


I’m loving Susannah Breslin’s guest posts on BoingBoing. Here she writes about Gwendolyn Huskens’ medical-themed footwear:

Created by student designer Gwendolyn Huskens, the set of six sick shoes aim to “reveal the taboos associated with physical deformities.” Couture for the clubfooted? Reminds me of Romain Slocombe’s medical fetishism, “Crash,” and stumbling supermodels. More images at designboom.
