Confession time! Put your hands up if you love shoes?

That was easy, ok now for the more intimate questions.

Who here loves their shoes as if they were their children?

Dont be shy, were all friends here.

See? That wasnt so bad.

After all, Im sure you have seen all over Pinterest and blogs, or the infamous MTV Cribs (remember that?) wardrobes dedicated entirely to shoes. They almost look like a museum exhibition in honour of shoes. See where were going here?

Recently I stumbled across an artist named Sebastian Errazurizwho had created an art collection titled12 Shoes for 12 Lovers, each sculpture is representative of a former lover and his experience with those women. 

Cry Baby 

Heart Breaker

 Looking at the collection all I can think isWhy arent they for sale? Its not fair!Apparently I turn into a four year old child at the thought of not being able to wear these shoes, however can you blame me? Look at them!

 I have to sayCry BabyandHeart Breakerare my absolute favourites, the former looking like something out of a Lady Gaga video but thankfully doesnt require special training to wear.

I guess the overall point Im trying to make is that, shoes can be art. Just think about the hours and dedication put into designing shoes. The years of training that Italian shoemakers would have undergone to craft quality leather shoes; wouldnt you call themartisans?
