Shoe Love: Shoes as Art?

Nicholas Kirkwood pumps via Net-a-porter

I'm not one to say that fashion is art and art can be worn. I'm not going to hang a dress on my wall but I appreciate impeccable craftsmanship. However, once in a while the line is blurred (like in the work of artist Nick Cave) and these Nicholas Kirkwood pumps got me thinking... I would definitely HAVE to try them on if I was out shopping. And if I took them home (fantasy land!) I would consider buying a pretty Lucite box to store them in on the fireplace mantle. I'm sure Gman would love that, right?

What do you think, can shoes be art? Would you try these on?

  1. I'm pretty sure that if I lived by myself & invested in a pair of really pretty, expensive designer shoes I would display them rather than wear them. Definitely think it can be art! Unless you live w/a boy & in that case they may not approve.
