“Front heel” shoes created by South African artist Leanie van der Vyver (who is also modelling the shoes) and Dutch shoe designer René van den Berg. Mmmmmm so comfy looking… There is footage of her walking in the shoes that can be found here. Thanks Lizzie!

    Have you seen the video of her trying to walk? Painful is the only word.

    NO! I haven’t seen the video – must look for it! I can’t imagine she would look graceful…
