Catwalk shoes have taken on a form of their own- often resembling complex works of art or architectural forms rather than footwear. It’s all part of the fantasy and imagination of the fashion world, and let’s face it; we have always been a shoe-obsessed society which only adds to our delight when we see these magnificent creations.
Each season we see a myriad of shoes on the catwalk that range from beautiful to barbaric. Here is a look at the weird and wonderful shoes that have graced the catwalks recently. Are they killer heels or wearable works of art? You decide.
