Does anyone know how to make these "fantasy world" shoes?

Asked by xTheDreamer (845 points ) October 18th, 2009

I call them “fantasy world” shoes because it’s like shoes from a Disney movie, I was wondering how they made them.

Here’s a link of a picture of these shoes: http://16.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_krppwwuHNk1qz6ygbo1_500.jpg

Ahhh, those shoes are straight from the runway, Alexander McQueen to be exact, his Spring 2010 show. More photos including video of models walking in them along with much commentary here

Why would anyone torture their feet like that?

Just looks like a spin-off of Ballet Heels

I’m wrong. Looking at the link to the runway shots, you can see they’re just a weird extension of platform heels. So find some fabric, and cover existing platform heels. You’d probably need some stiff material to create the shell though.

Even in the link you provided, one can see the basic foodbed/sole shape in a few of the images. I guess there is an elastic across the top of the foot to hold it in place, and/or maybe some foam filling it out.

I would break every bone in my body just trying to stand! They look cool though!

@Beta_Orionis is right! They “skeleton” is basically a platform heel (much higher than those, of course!).

LOL, I thought you were gonna link to a pic like this.

I like heels, but sorry, not so keen on them. I wouldn’t know how to start to make them! Sorry not much help!

@evegrimm yay! Yeah, taller. They’re closer to Stripper Heels.
and why would I do that!?! haha.

@Beta_Orionis, I actually meant that I thought the OP was going to link to that.
You know, “fantasy world” shoes? :P

@evegrimm ohhh! That makes so much more sense. :P
