Wooden Shoes by Cat Potter
A friend of mine recently emailed me an article from DesignTaxi about a designer who created shoes from wood. Now this normally wouldn’t be a big deal, but the shoes are made entirely from wood. Solid fluid pieces. I thought it was kind of cool- albeit weird.
Designer Cat Potter really went a different route. I’m not sure if this was supposed to be artistic or not, but I can’t see anyone wearing these. I mean…Would (no pun intended, hehehe) they be comfortable to walk around in? The only pair that I might even consider wearing is this sandal looking one, which is half-decent.
I like that she combined new technology with old school materials. I like that she took a risk. I would love to know how heavy these shoes are and how comfortable. For the most part, these look like wooden boxes for your feet. You know, what? I can totally see Lady Gaga wearing these designs. What do you think?
