What Happens When You Cross A Goat With A Gun? This Shoe, Apparently

gun-hoof-shoe-1
Under normal circumstances, the words "gun," "hoof," and "shoes" would have no reason to be used in the same sentence, but artist and designer Iris Schieferstein combines all three together in her plainly named "Gun Hoofs," a follow-up from her disturbingly realistic plain-hoofed version. More art object than actual footwear, these shoes make an ironic statement about the paradox of taxidermy: That in death, the animal achieves immortality, and we're sure the gold-plated revolver doesn't hurt the late goat's street cred. A bizarre hybrid of the Margiela hoofed shoe and the Chanel gun pump, these babies are must-have pieces for any serious satyrialist. (Design Milk)
