It would be an absolute splash to strut down the street in these Cry Baby Shoes, but they would equally be a captivating set of items in a gallery setting. Sebastian Errazuriz has actually designed these outrageous wedges as part of his 12 Shoes for 12 Lovers series, with each pair representing a particular woman.

It looks as though the wearer of these high heels has simply stamped her foot into a puddle of milk; however, the walls of spattering droplets mean to capture the tears that rolled incessantly down one girl's face during her encounter with the artist. The resultant creation is passionate and high-energy, despite the creamy color. The white could be interpreted in a number of ways; perhaps it's the contradictory emotionlessness with which the woman approached the Cry Baby Shoes' creator particularly.
