Iris Schieferstein Hoofed Shoe

Last year a friend sent me a picture of these shoes as a joke since it looked like I was a hoofed animal in some of my high heels. The artist Iris Schieferson is a German artist that works with dead animals as raw material, cutting and pasting in a Frankenstein-like manner to create art and fashion.

The gun on the heel reminded me of The Chanel line of Gun heels Madonna wore a little while back.

With a touch of Nina Ricci Shoes Fall 2009

Schiefersteien's shoes are worth roughly $6000
I don't imagine it is something one would want to wear often if at all but it is certainly a morbid piece where fashion meets art.


  1. Oh gross. The hoof thing is disgusting.

    I kind of like the last shoes though, very Lady Gaga-ish :)

  2. A spell-check on the last line would give that sentence more sense. :-)

  3. I LOVE HOOVES AND GUNS!!! where if i can can i buy them? xx
