You can now buy $10,000 ‘human skin’ heels that make you look barefoot in public

Fashion duo Hannah Rose Dalton and Steven Raj Bhaskaran of Montreal-based Fecal Matter are known for their outlandish and otherworldly visuals of aliens on the streets.

One of their most contentious looks was a digitally-altered pair of foot-like shoes that were featured on Vogue magazine. In reality, the heels were prosthetics that were “petrified” into an en pointe position using Photoshop.

It was all a tall Instagram lie, until it was not.

“Everyone was like, ‘Is it Photoshopped? Is it not Photoshopped?’ We wanted to put it out in real life,” said Bhaskaran.

Thus came the real-life ‘Skin Heels’, which were painstakingly created by artist Sarah Sitkin to replicate Dalton’s leg.

The thigh-high silicon footwear bears moles, little hairs, uneven skin tones resembling the Fecal Matter co-founder’s actual leg.

The shoes are a physical incarnation of what Fecal Matter believes humans might look like as a result of social media ideals and body modification.
