Shoes by Michelle Linden

I love shoes. I mean, really what woman doesn't? And even though these shoes are totally cracked out, and I would never wear them (mostly because I don't wear heels) nor would I be able to afford them - I love these shoes. They look like a studio project and definitely seem like they are designed by an architect. They're probably not so practical for walking down the street, but why does everything have to be practical? Sometimes it is ok to just appreciate the design.
