Think Your Heels Hurt? Look at These Shoes and Think Again!

Almost hard to watch, isn’t it?  Well it’s part of a new exhibit called Scary Beautiful and is a collaboration between Leanie van der Vyver and Dutch shoe designer René van den Berg.  Here is the philosophy behind their creation:

Humans are playing God by physically and metaphorically perfecting themselves. Beauty is currently at an all-time climax, allowing this project to explore what lies beyond perfection.

Scary Beautiful challenges current beauty ideals by inflicting an unexpected new beauty standard.

So I think the takeaway here is, next time your find yourself in an uncomfortable pair of heels, think about this poor girl and remember – things could be worse.
