Artist Carmel Walsh has created shoes that definitely aren't going to be found in a shoe store, but maybe they should be found in a museum!

These beautiful (albeit offbeat) shoes from Carmel Walsh both look like nature and are helpful to nature. Using restored wood as well as organic and local materials, the designer was left with interesting and earth-friendly materials. The result are these beautiful shoes that look like they could live happily in nature.

Implications - The shoes marry style and nature, as Walsh highlights her inspirations as the incredible shapes of cliffs and mountains and the various textures and colors that can be found in the natural world. Nature can be incorporated into fashion in a way that seems near effortless.
