I spend an awful lot of time posting stuff that I want, and especially, posting about shoes. This post IS about shoes, but nothing I want. And you'll see why!

Look at these bad-ass shoes created by Romanian Mihai Albu. They kind of take the "Wearable" out of "Wearable Art", but I guess it's only a matter of time before these end up on The Sartorialist, oui?

This guy must hate women!! I can see this being some elaborate plot on Law and Order SVU where an abused child forced into premature adulthood takes out his aggression on women by torturing them with painful footwear...

Albu calls his designs, which run up to nearly $1600, "Constructed Chaos". Amen to that...!

I, the girl who can be found in motorcycle boots for most of the year, would not wear them, but I definitely respect them as architectural phenomenons and beautiful pieces of art work. But I can't wait to see Gaga strutting around in them.

And now, my dear readers...The Piece Du Resistance:

Ever wondered what Elephant dung looks like???? Or better yet, what it feels like to step on it?

These elephant dung heels, made by INSA (which may be short for INSANE) leave me speechless. I don't know whether to laugh or cry or gag or want a pair or what!! They are apparently inspired by artist (I use the terms "inspired" and "artist" loosely) Chris Ofili.

“INSA retraced the footsteps Chris Ofili made over 15 years ago and sourced dung from the same family of elephants that produced the dung used in Chris’s infamous paintings of the nineties.”

Hm. That's...dedication?

Anyway, yes, Loves it, no, wouldn't wear it.

What say you??
