Crazy, fascinating shoe design by Eelko Moorer.
"The idea was not to make wearable footwear necessarily, but more footwear that could function as a therapeutic prosthetic object with a psychological function for the user. It lets the user experience his own body making him conscious of the flesh through strapping on the stilts in a bondage kind of way and via balancing on the tips of the heels." (interview)
DIY-shoes for modern knights:

On the contrary I believe in the value of difference, co-existence and the eccentric." (interview)
