Skin Shoes

Created by a French duo of designers who call themselves 'matieres fecales' (or, Fecal Matter). From Vogue:

Fecal Matter’s latest creation, a skin boot that blends, or rather morphs, into its owner’s legs. It comes complete with a stab-you-in-the-eye satanic horn heel and defined piggy-wiggy toes. On the shin is a mini extension that curves upward like a thorny vestigial tail. The one non-lifelike part is a plastic platform that resembles an upside-down cup...

Fecal Matter’s philosophy behind the footwear reflects what they think humans will eventually look like as a result of body modification, social media, and advances in technology.

Somebody at Vogue needs to repeat Anatomy 101, because our shins are the fronts of our legs. Otherwise, wearing these ought to be a satisfactory way to break an ankle.

Those shoes aren't worth "matiere fecale."

(I could have used a stronger word, but didn't want to offend anyone's sensibilities.)

Virtual In Carnate, I think the problem is with the translation service, not Vogue. And maybe with the designer for patching their too-long horn heel with the little tables inside the pizza boxes from their lunch.
