The Fang shoe from Iris van Herpen and United Nude is perhaps the fiercest piece of footwear ever created. This ferocious wedge was created for Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in Paris. Each shoe features 10 fangs apiece and comes in several different colors and styles.

Creating the Fang shoe is not as simple as throwing a set of extremely long teeth onto a pair of wedges and calling it a day. Creating the fangs is a lengthy process, with each fang made using carbon fiber and fiber glass mixed together in a slow molding process. These shoes wowed the audience at the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, but there was no confirmation as to whether or not they would ever make it to market.
