Wrong in So Many Ways


These are Apex Predator Shoes from UK designer Fantich & Young, and they are Saville Row Oxfords with soles that, apparently, have 1,050 rubber dentures as part of their design or manufacture.

When I saw them, I thought of two things. One, they are a hideous combination of something that goes on your feet and in your mouth--a reminder of the fact that taste and design are critically important when considering something that tries to be different. Two, how happy is someone going to be when bits of teeth fall off from the shoes in an office, in a restaurant, or in someone's home?

Some people will buy anything, but, really. Why would anyone buy these shoes?
