A design for a "killer" shoe that didn't end up going through to production, but I thought I would share anyways...
Two Headed Viper Shoe with a Dagger Heel
This shoe takes it's inspiration from mythology and the history of the stiletto heel.
I wanted to design a shoe that would encapsulate the ultimate power femme pump. The sharp metal "dagger" heel gives the shoes a dangerous edge, while the two headed serpent that stretches it's self around the dagger and wearer acts as a sensual, yet formidable guardian. In Medieval times a stiletto dagger was the weapon of choice for knights and paupers alike. This dagger gave the stiletto heel it's name, so I thought it more than appropriate to accentuate this in my design. In Egyptian mythology the guardian of the underworld was a god named Nehebkau, who had two serpent heads. They believed that Nehebkau had the power to protect against snake bites, and invoke magical spells both in life, and the after life. I like the idea of these two headed snakes acting as mystical guardians for who so ever dares to wear these killer heels.
Any cobblers out there want to do a collaboration? I basically want to wear these shoes...and they don't exist yet!
And no shoe post would be complete with out the wise words of Kelly:
