Wacky Shoes and Footwear

Gum shoes for detectives

I strived on this hub to provide you with an example of some of the craziest ideas for wacky footwear anywhere on this planet. This hub contains over two dozen pairs of exclusive multi-variation styles and out of this world footwear that you'll ever see in one place. This might be trendy footwear somewhere, but other than walking down on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards I couldn't begin to tell you where.

As far as shoes go I can't even imagine going through life without a pair of them on my feet. The shoe is supposed to protect your foot while doing your daily activities. Shoes are made from leather, wood, canvas,and rubber. The earliest known shoes are simply a pair of open toed sandals dating back to around 7,000 and 8,000 BC. Footwear is supposed to be comfortable however some of these wacky pairs of footwear would even make a cobbler scream. I'm not talking here about the dessert, the illegal professional of making false passports, the mixed drink or even a mountain located in Scotland, but I'm referring to the cobbler who repairs shoes for this hub.

Cobblers may be a dieing profession in the world today, but artist showing their imagination by practicing, and demonstrating the arts in a pair of shoes is alive and well in the world today. They do their magical artwork on boots, high heels, sandals, tennis shoes, dress shoes, Crocs, and just about anything that a person chooses to put on their feet. This might be artwork to some folks out there, but I can't even imagine going through life with a pair of these wacky shoes on my feet. I hope that maybe you enjoy these two dozen pairs of some of the craziest ideas for wacky footwear anywhere on this planet, and maybe for this hub you can tell me just exactly what TheHoleStory is all about here.

You wouldn't want to break a pair of these shoes open while they are still on your feet.

I say "ewwww" to most of them although the red boots would elevate a short person like me to eye level with my husband. Great research on these wacky designs.

This was a really well written article for entertainment. I am sure a lot of celebrities and models would like have some of those shoes. This hub was very interesting and you explained your content well. The pictures were also very entertaining. Overall I voted it up great job!

Oh my goodness! The Elmo shoes were cute and the red, shiny hooker books reminded me of the boots on the billboards for the Broadway play (which I never saw, I just walked past the billboard), Kinky Boots. The others...I don't have any intention of wearing these. Why, why, why would anyone want spiders in their shoes? Maybe as a Halloween costume? Or a lost bet? I'll stick to the platform, zebra slippers I'm currently wearing thanks! They're uglier than all get out, but they're comfy and keep my feet dry!

Great work hustling all those fabulous photos together. I'd only wear one of those pair of shoes in acting class or a professional movie gig. But they're fun to look at.

I am inclined to believe that many of the shoes featured here are not meant to be worn.

I definitely wanted to see this one today, especially after seeing the most ridiculous cowboy boot/flip flop invention. I loved the laugh, and I really love seeing the artistry! Many of these should be in an art gallery and not clacking down the streets of Manhattan. This is a great piece, and I appreciate you taking the time to write it!
