There have been some wonderful and wacky developments in the world of shoes lately. Here are some of the latest designs to tickle or torture your tootsies.
Louboutin has created a shoe design to look like a shoe has been made up of a tape measure. The straps are calfskin, there’s a criss-cross ankle wrap with adjustable golden buckle, padded insole, leather lining, and a 4-inch heel. The signature Louboutin red sole is underneath.
And another: As part of his Autumn 2011 collection, Christian Louboutin will debut his golden lion paw pump. Definitely purrr-fect for the catwalk.

The Company United Nude has created a DIY shoe that looks rather uncomfortable and hard to assemble. United Nude created the shoe as part of an art project about space travel and the possibility of humans living on the moon in the future. The shoe collapses for compact lunar travel and the upper parts are interchangeable for customizing.
Check out these: Fashion student, Lisa Dillon from Bath Spa University near London, designed these heels out of stale bread and West Country cheddar as part of a competition to promote the region’s dairy industry. More melted and “molded” cheese makes up the embellishment on the toe of the shoes. Maybe not the most wearable shoes though.
