Take a walk on the wild side

While browsing for strange shoes online the other day, I came across something I've never seen before. Something envisioned with the prospect of "new". But, more than epitomizing "new", these shoes deftly illustrated "Avant-garde", and shoes as pieces of art. These are the type of shoes that could zealously sit upon one's dresser or other piece of furniture, simply to sit there. Simply to generate conceptions and foster conversations. This blank and rigidly stiff, fresh off-white canvas, smelling still as the back of the dusty local art store awaits dialogue and discussion. Let the world as one enjoy these pieces of bizarre artistry.

Yes, they're real.
