  1. Lol the shoes with the pony tails made me giggle. The Melonia shoes remind me of wild mushrooms for some reason. The last pair with feathers is fierce though! I’d wear those and channel my inner runway fashionista.

  3. These shoes are amazing. Have you seen the opening credits from “True Detective?” They feature the spike shoes. Foot surgery has left me Croc and Fitflops material, but I can dream. As an art lover, producer and collector, I can only state the obvious: These shoes are pure art. And require the grace of a dancer to wear, I’m sure. More art.
