A Walk Through Art History–In Shoe Form

I would love to spend a day in Nick Alderman’s shoes (well, maybe not the Chinese Art shoes!). Here’s what he says about his art:

“I designed these shoes with a unique goal in mind: to create a shoe as a summation of an entire culture‚Äôs art. Each shoe possesses design qualities, color palettes, and designs only found in the respective culture. This project allowed me to investigate art historical cultures in a special way by challenging myself to translate an entire style (or series of styles) onto a single object.”

You can see all his shoe art here.
