Within the fashion industry, footwear transcends practicality and steps into the world of art. The GI Jane Shoe is an example of a piece that exercises this broad classification, becoming a sculpture with meaning and a story behind it.

You may be familiar with the recent work of Sebastian Errazuriz and his 12 Shoes for 12 Lovers series. What we have here is his Shoe Sculpture No. 10, dedicated to a girl he's called Barbara. This past girlfriend was the daughter of a colonel, who certainly had an influence over his child's life in many ways that a regular father could not have. To represent this coquettish young lady, the GI Jane Shoe is a tall and smoothly crafted high heel, finished in army green and adorned with a toy soldier on the toe.
