From Fish Tank Platforms to Killer Kicks

Platforms from the disco days no longer pass as the means of funky footwear. Nor do the latest Jordans in kaleidoscopic patterns and colors. If your shoes aren’t sporting their own animal heel or shackles you might as well keep them to yourself.

I remember a time when shoes that lit up where a hot topic but those spotlight steppers couldn’t possibly compete with the these outlandish soles. Shoe designers today have drawn inspiration from the utmost unthinkable -- from scuba diving gear to playground equipment. It isn’t usual to see a girl at a party walking around in a shoe that sports no heel or an angelic pretty boy with wings on his feet.

Funky footwear is art you can walk in and more times than not, you can do so comfortably. Stats for 32 Pairs of Unusual Funky Footwear Trending: Older & Popular
