These back-to-front shoes by designer Leanie van der Vyver force the wearer to walk in an unnatural way (+ movie). Unlike a conventional pair of high-heels, the front of each shoe is more elevated than the back. The wearer must place their pointed toes into the heel, then lean forward to rest their shins on the front of the shoe, which is reinforced with a carbon-fibre rod.
Leather envelops the outer body of each shoe, while the insides are lined with soft leather that covers a supporting layer of  orthopaedic memory foam.
Van der Vyver worked with shoe designer Rene van den Berg to create the pieces for her final project at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, based on the idea that "people are never satisfied with how they look". Should be used as punishment for girls who totter around in heels they quite clearly can’t walk in (says the old grumpy flat footed lady). Ugg, I know its the point, but I get so uncomfortable and queasy watching her walk distorted like that. This is obviously a comment on the absurdity and cruelty involved in feminine apparel, such as high heel shoes, and on the the strange beauty they generate.
But Picasso paintings, although unrealistic, were always beautiful to look at either because of the bizarre shape of the object or person or because of the combination of colours. Rather than using products and art for social commentary and to convey a message, why not just say what it is you must say? In related news, industrial designer forces people to walk unnatural by strapping a 100 kg rock to their heads! Because nothing says beautiful like walking around like an 88 year old with severe osteoporosis.


Altruistically, they are not conceptual nor futuristic: they are a study of elements in design. In my opinion there are more similarities than differences in wearing a burqa and wearing high heels. With Leanie van der Vyver’s excellent project, maybe now we may want to understand the peculiar forces maintaining this fascinating paradigm. These shoes make her point in a far more engaging way than her standing on a soap box and reciting her opinions.
Funny how people insist on slaughtering this as ridiculous and impractical design when it is quite clearly an art project where the ridiculousness, impracticality and discomfort is what she is trying to convey by exaggerating an ideal to the extreme. Easter Sunday was the perfect opportunity for me to get out of the jeans and into my brand new Gap white cotton sundress. Because it’s still not summer I toughened up the look with this favourite Whistles leather biker jacket.
She claims that "beauty is currently at an all time climax" and explains that this project was an exploration of "what lies beyond perfection".
Try making life easier, that is what good design should be about, not some perverted rubbish. The object is not beautiful, it hasn’t been developed in any special way, and like I said the message is old, even the way of communicating it.
It’s clear that if that model had have kept walking she would have easily broken her legs.


When people say this project looks stupid, it represents what I think when I look at certain shoes in shops on the high street.
Some of these are so deeply and invisibly embedded in society (often called paradigms) that we are not consciously aware of them.
Conveyed her message perfectly, ignited discussion & lots of people further highlighted her point with the kneejerk commentaries! You have the option of nipping in the waist with the draw strings or wearing it loose like I am. It's also about exploring, experimenting and questioning the world around us, our culture and the things that shape us. The weekend has mostly consisted of feasting, doggy walks, rummaging through each others makeup bags, drinking wine and laughing hysterically. I think walking in these looks like worse torture than The Human Centipede did and my oh my, that wasn’t pretty.
