‘apex predator’ by fantich and young

 

 

 

 

british studio fantich and young have re-interepreted the humble dinner shoe by replacing a regular rubber sole with hundreds of dentures. the ‘apex predator shoe’ transforms the elegant savile row oxford shoe, inlaying 1050 fake teeth and accompanies an entire suit made of human hair and glass eyes.

 

  • aesthetically it is really interesting, but the simple fact of thinking that i have teeth under my feet make me want to throw up! Even if these are fakes!

    Mickael says:
  • it’s almost as creepy as a jug covered in nipples…with hair

  • Don’t they have anything else to do?
    I guess it is true; “I don’t care what they say about me as long as they are talking about me.”

    rcvs1 says:
  • i love this but am also thinking it might have been even more effective to use a pink rubber for the inner part. would have been more mouth like.

    i actually did something similar with some clam shell adidas.

  • this is a design sketch that should have been left on the table, destined for trash. To imagine it went so far as to be be built boggles the mind. I call this nonsense “shock design”. It’s frankly very bad and it’s only aim to attention grabbing. What a waste of time.

    is it different, sure. Is wearing my glasses upside down different, yes. Does it that qualify as design, no.
