Scary Beautiful: These Boots Were Not Made For Walking

Oct 1, 2012Breaking Newzzz

These make those Alexander McQueen Lady Gaga shoes seem like Uggs.

These boots are ugly and called “Scary Beautiful”. Definitely the most treacherous footwear we’ve ever seen. Love over Lady Gaga in those McQueens.The massive heels appear backwards on the foot, so the wearers feet point straight down the back, as if in ballet shoes, with their shin leaning against the front “heel” end of the design to balance. The shoes are a collaboration between artist Leanie van der Vyver and Dutch shoe designer René van den Berg, and serve as a commentary on today’s impossible standards of beauty. Van der Vyver is South African, and recently graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. We spotted “Crazy Beautiful” on her website,, and reached out to her for the inside scoop.
