Melissa Shoes' Art Basel Pop-Up Shop Is Lady Gaga's Dream

Gaga, where you at? Our guess: dancing her way into the Melissa Shoes' Pop-Up Shop in Miami today. The N.Y.-based shoe mecca (you know, the one that collaborates with bigwigs like Karl Lagerfeld, Jason Wu, and Vivienne Westwood) is setting up at Art Basel with an exclusive collection with artist Sebastian Errazuriz called "12 Shoes For 12 Lovers." The result? The craziest, kind-of-fetish-y, totally novelty, Lady Gaga-esque kicks.
Inspired by former girlfriends, Errazuriz used state-of-the-art 3-D-printing technology to design these one-of-a-kind shoe sculptures. "Melissa is all about innovative shoe design married to superior materials, technology, and craftsmanship," said Michele Levy, CEO of Melissa USA. And, innovation is right. After all, each shoe is more jaw-dropping than the next. We're talking everything from crown-shaped wedges to G.I. Jane-sculpted pumps. Click through to catch a glimpse of these (true) works of art. And, since you can't technically buy these stunners, we also culled our favorite, totally wearable Melissa shoes that you can pick up right now, too.
The sculptures will be unveiled at a private cocktail reception today from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Melissa Pop-Up Shop at 830 Lincoln Road in Miami. Check out the exhibit (open to the public) through January 5, 2014.
