how’d you fall down?

I thought this was an interesting, although incredibly impractical, design to put on the bottom of a shoe. I’ve always been interested in the balance of aesthetics and functionality found in shoe soles. I tend to sway towards to the idea that utilitarian designs can have equal or greater aesthetic value than the display shown on this shoe.

Wow, that’s interesting that you buy shoes according to the tread on the bottom. I suppose that’s one of the greatest functions of a shoe–how it grips the ground. I never thought of that. I always–ALWAYS–have bought shoes according to their style. The only functional shoes I bought are my snowboots, and those boots are incredible. Every Chicagoan needs a pair of real snowboots. Can you make a blog post about snowboots?

oh and gym shoes. I buy those for function. Last time I went to DSW and tried on something like 72 different pairs of gym shoes to find the best fit.
