Van Gogh once painted a pair of muddy old boots and Swiss surrealist
Meret Oppenheim made a sculpture of white heels on a plate.
But can a pair of shoes ever be a work of art in its own right?
Take a peek at the one-of-a-kind creations from Toronto graffitist Matthieu
Missiaen and decide for yourself.
Missiaen turns vintage high tops and heels into a surface for his
No pump is alike. And if you hand over your measurements and style
specifics, youll get a bespoke piece of shoe art in return ($120-$180).
Whether you choose to suspend them from a ceiling or go clubbing in them
is up to you.
