Taxidermy Heels by Iris Schieferstein

We’re all for creativity in footwear, but sometimes shoe designers create things that just give us the creeps! The Gun Hoof by Iris Schieferstein (seen above) is one such case. Her work is less like footwear than taxidermy; and since what you see are real hoofs and furs it actually IS taxidermy. The implied violence is made that much more present by the presence of guns as heels. Perhaps it’s the designer/artist’s intention to remind people that even plain leather pumps are made from animal parts? Find out more about Schieferstein on her website.
