Shoes made from wood, anyone?
OK, you got me: these aren’t actually carved out if a block of wood, although that’s obviously the effect the designers were after here. Actually, the uppers are a wood-print patent, and the sloping effect of the front of the shoe helps add to that impression. These are very unusual, very typical of Maison Martin Margiela, and, some would say, very strange. I’m fascinated by them, and love to look at them, although wearing them would probably be different matter altogether.
