News, but not the serious kind
If Lego made shoes for women…
Lamar, you said you had a hot new fashion design to show me. I’m skeptical after that nutty lingerie thing a few days ago, but I’m listening.
Here it is, boss, behold the future!
To the untrained eye, sure. But it’s actually a flexible modular shoe design which allows a woman to make 256 different footwear combinations!
Two hundred and fifty-six combinations, all of them hideous?
It does take some getting used to, but look. We can do stilettos, sandals, flats, pumps, fuzzy slippers, thigh boots, golf shoes, snowshoes…
This looks very, very complicated, Lamar.
Not to worry, Boss. The parts come with a 60-page instruction booklet and a three-hour DVD….
Yeah, it’s possible to lose an eye when these heels go flying, but the shoes do come with safety goggles.
Cripes, Lamar. I think if I bought these I’d just give up and go barefoot!
Brilliant, Boss! That takes us up to 257 combinations!
Sharon Golan, a graduate design student from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, poses with her design, a pair of modular shoes, at an exhibition in Jerusalem July 21, 2011. Golan’s shoes are made up of four separate plastic pieces which are held together on the foot with silicone rubber bands. The design allows the wearer to change looks by replacing any one component of the shoe offering a total of 256 different footwear combinations. REUTERS/Ronen Zvulun
