I have begun to wonder when the creation of shoes became such an art form? These past few seasons of shoe fashion literally causes me to drop my jaw. Not only have shoes reached new heights in terms of heel, they have literally become a form of art. I love to ogle these high fashion shoes and have come to appreciate them for their creativity, craftsmanship and innovative forms, while I would not dare to try and actually use these as shoes! The average shoe designer has had to turn into a sculptural expert. Each piece is a careful work of structure, balance and material. In New York city I see shoes for girls reaching new heights and those attempting to wear such high art shoes look ridiculous like stilt walkers as they tower a foot above everyone else and take small akward steps. But I cannot wait until the Moma or the Met decides it is time for a new art exhibit explicitly created around the Art of the Shoe because there really are some fabulous creations out there establishing shoe design as a new form of art.
