Weird Shoe Wednesdays: Fruity Pumps and Fruity Flats

In case you’ve been skimping on your daily fix of fruits and vegetables, these pumps and flats just might have you covered in that department. These pumps and flats come from Charlotte Olympia with leather and suede uppers in a delectable mix of bananas, strawberries, watermelon, and pineapple. Though maybe it’d be easier on your purse just have a V8 instead: the Charlotte Olympia pumps go for a shade under $1,700; the flats for $945. Whew!

Weird Shoe Wednesdays: Newspaper Flats

Wow, just wow. Flats made from recycled Chinese newspaper. These could save the world. I’ll just let Moxsie do the talking:

“Designer Colin Lin hit upon a very exciting idea by using recycled newspaper to create an environmentally friendly ballet flat. These adorable flats are crafted from recycled Chinese language newspapers that are woven into a lattice pattern, then dipped in plastic for weather protection and durability. The coating gives the shoe a waterproof protection, so it’s actually better than fabric or leather.

Each pair uses just three to three and a half pages of newsprint and is handcrafted with the help of cottage industry artists in China. Cutting back on factory production methods and making every shoe one of a kind.”

Afterheels: Another Shoe Vending Machine

Wow, London really loves their vending machines. This is the second vending machine we’ve heard about that sells shoes. And they’re both located in London.

The first vending machine we heard about sold running shoes and sneakers. This one, from a company called Afterheels, sells comfortable ballet flats aimed at the club-going crowd. The idea is that if a woman is out dancing all night in her fancy heels, her feet will start to hurt badly. Afterheels flats will allow that woman a chance to change into something much more comfortable. On top of that, the flats come with a small duffel bag to store her original pair of heels..

A pair of Afterheels flats goes for roughly $10 USD. Both the flats and the duffel bag are made from recyclable materials. The flats are waterproof and offer great protection from typical club hazards such as broken glass. They also come in a variety of colors.
