high heels


High heels look great, but they are never comfortable. London College of Fashion graduate Silvia Fado Moreno has come up with a solution in the form of high heels with built-in hydraulic springs to cushion your every step. The Kinetic Traces collection was developed by Moreno through studying impact absorption, shoe weight, traction, and durability and then adding components to make the shoe more comfortable.

There are springs and even rubber balls worked into the designs which have lots of unique wood and leather elements. The shoes were created using both traditional leather and woodworking combined with laser cutting and 3D printing.

Want a stunning pair of superhero shoes? You can find them at Made By Bunny’s shop. The design on these Wonder Woman heels is definitely eye-catching – heck, it might blind people in direct sunlight – and includes the heroine’s costume colors and her logo. Seriously, you could use these heels as a weapon when you’re not wearing them.

If you’d like to order them, be sure to read the procedures carefully. You have to send the seller the shoes you want decorated in order to avoid sizing issues. It’s tricky but manageable when you’re getting a gorgeous product like this!

Thanks to social media, I was shown the most amazing pair of shoes I’ve ever seen.

These beauties are from Etsy store Wicked Attraction and, besides being damn shiny, they’re geek girl accurate.

Admittedly, they may be a bit pricey, but these Batman heels are hand painted, have a glittered sole, and are covered with over 2000 with Swarovski crystals.

Check out more pictures after the break and try not to drool.

First we had backward high heels that were so awkward that the poor model could hardly walk. Now, we have high heel shoes that are all twisted up around your foot courtesy of designer Julian Hakes. It’s called the Mojito shoe, likely because you’d have to have had a few drinks before you’d think wearing these was a good idea.

These ridiculously high heels that strap on backward are the work of artist Leanie van der Vyver and shoe maker René van den Berg.

Humans are playing God by physically and metaphorically perfecting themselves. Beauty is currently at an all time climax, allowing this project to explore what lies beyond perfection.

Scary Beautiful challenges current beauty ideals by inflicting an unexpected new beauty standard.

Okay, clearly I am not artsy enough to get these shoes because they don’t look like anything other than a new and awkward from of torture.

Roaring T-Rex Heels Look Fierce!

This amazing pair of shoes were sent in by Fashionably Geek reader Michelle S. who received them as a gift from her boyfriend. He actually made these for her because he knew she was a huge Star Wars fan and wanted to do something special. Really, dude, you’re making the rest of the less crafty guys out there look bad. Cut it out.

You know what kind of shoes perfectly complement a little black dress? Heels covered in comic book characters. If you love the idea of decoupaged shoes but don’t have the desire to create your own, Hell on Heels has you covered.

The Etsy seller offers a few choice designs like Wonder Woman, Avengers, Amazing Spider-Man, Rogue, and more. What I really like about these shoes is that every centimeter of surface is covered, even the heel part. That’s not easy. These pictures represent past designs; each pair is custom made and takes 12-14 days to complete.

After drooling over all the decoupage shoes on the internet (especially the Star Wars ones) for ages, I decided to figure out how to make my own. Because I love the animated series, I put the Clone Wars spin on them. It took several hours, but the process is very easy. I just decoupaged the images onto a cheap pair of black heels with Mod Podge and sealed everything with a glossy varnish. Tada!

These shoes were actually made during a nerd shoe craft party. Check out the other styles my friends and I put together here.
