dominic young and mariana fantich of british studio fantich & young have added to their line of shoe sculptures with ‘apex predator’ for young girls. the pair of youth footwear are mary jane style, with hot red patent red surfaces and a buckled strap. at their sole, instead of the traditional rubber bottom, the creative duo have implanted hundreds of individual back and front teeth dentures into the base. the result transforms the otherwise adorable wearable into something a bit more sinister, resulting in a distributing twist on a classic childhood item.
