For a fundamentally practical part of a person's wardrobe, it's fascinating to behold something like the Boss shoes. They appear to be functional examples of footwear; however, they've been elevated to the status of sculpture as well, bearing formal features that are intended to impress on an artistic level.

Sebastian Errazuriz created this daring pair of high heels as part of his 12 Shoes for 12 Lovers series; like the other 11, these pumps represent a single former partner. Subject No. 9 is Rachel, an unpredictable lady who was sometimes feminine and flirtatious, and occasionally fierce and fiery without warning. The Boss shoes feature the brass knuckles detail within the otherwise seductive black stilettos.
