The fascinating thing about unusual shoes is that they are the result of
innovative and creative ideas of some of the most weird shoe designers. However, there seems to be some controversy
that surrounds their creation. Currently, there has been an upsurge in interest in this fashionable footwear. This
makes them even more confusing and the best thing one can do is appreciate them (from a distance!) for their
aesthetic value and ingenuous and creative style.
What are the factors that make up unusual shoes?
The special thing about these shoes is their uniqueness. It is highly unlikely to
find two or more shoes having the same design or style. The reason for this is that the original designers and
makers were each motivated by a certain theme which influenced their design and so the design that they have come
up with is unique to them. The materials that are used to make these shoes are quite different. Some are made of
plastic and fabric while others made of cast metal, leather and also a combination of one or more of these
materials. This element of uniqueness offers the interested buyer an opportunity to sample and select specific
designs to purchase.
There are specific websites that are dedicated to informing individuals about
unusual shoes. These sites have galleries for the shoes they have managed to capture and store as photos. This is
one of the easiest ways of searching for specific designs of these shoes. Still other websites offer them for sale,
and so interested buyers can shop from those sites. One can buy and keep unusual shoes as collectible. This means
purchasing the shoe and keeping it for posterity i.e. to show people in the future.
The unusual shoes may seem inappropriate or distracting when worn in public and so
it is rare to find people wearing them. Most prefer to have them as a collector’s item or decoration. However,
there are some moderate designs that don’t focus more on creativity over use. Such designs can be worn casually by
the owner. Individuals who have outrageous or provocative designs should keep their shoes away from public
Hate them or love them, these shoes are here to stay and their legacy is even
greater and perhaps bigger than the controversies they create.
