This is a collection of high heel shoes made to resemble famous paintings. The artist responsible for hand-painting the walking works of art is Boyarde Messenger (NOT to be confused with Chef Boyardee who’s responsible for making a delicious canned Beefaroni). The shoes are inspired by famous paintings of Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein, and others. The concept itself was brought to us by Designer Charlotte Olympia for Neiman Marcus. Each pair in the series is Charlotte’s signature Dolly Pumps. Which… I can’t help but wonder, why didn’t they do a Salvador Dalí version? Dalí Dolly Pumps! C’mon, people would be all over that based on the name alone! I mean, not me of course, but that’s only because I don’t do heels. Can you imagine a potato strutting around in a pair of sky-high pumps? Exactly. You can’t! And just like a potato, I got bad balance. Plus we’re both a little lumpy.
