I was tasked with designing and creating a unique shoe; one someone can actually put their foot in. Wearing and walking in it was optional. When someone gives me the parameter of unique I go straight to bizarro land. I decided I wanted to see if I could design a shoe based on HR Giger’s Alien in the Alien films. The materials used were Sculpey, wire, and black spray paint. I loved the end result.
I made my shoe in March of 2009 before the Alien shoe by Alexander McQueen came out. I must own them someday!
