Scuba Chic?

With the deluge of rain over the past two weeks, I’ve been joking around about swimming to work. Do you think these “pumps” would be office appropriate? Perhaps in black? Just kidding!

Thankfully, these shoes (I almost hesitate to even call them that) are merely for show. They were part of a 2006 exhibition by Belgian artist Paul Schietekat. However, a May 5, 2009, article from the UK Telegraph suggests:

similar designs are causing excitement among style-conscious travelers on shoe websites

Now that’s a scary thought! I’ll give the designer credit for originality, a nicely styled heel and an eye-catching color. Personally, though, I think I’ll keep my heels on the high-ground and my flippers flat.
