Needless to say, these zip-up, apparently real, hoof shoes caught my attention. I don’t know where they came from, but they sure are gnarly.

They made me curious, so I started looking for other ‘hoof shoes.’ I was surprised to find several examples.

There is a pair of hoof-clad huaraches liberated from an illegal immigrant, a couple of haute couture cloven-hoof examples, a pair for horsing around, and something futuristic called the ‘hoof shoe,’ that is supposed to be somehow good for your feet.
