Iris Schieferstein has already attracted attention to her work which includes high heels made from animal hooves. Now she's taken those strange shoes to a new level—a dangerous one. Her newest work, 'Gun Hoofs,' incorporates the heeled hooves with the heel shaped as a stiletto handgun.

The hooves on 'Gun Hoofs' are painted gold, just like the pistol at the back. There's nothing about 'Gun Hoofs' that doesn't demand attention.

Implications - The mere combination of the words 'gun' and 'hoof' would have anyone intrigued. Upon looking through this collection of images it would be tough not to picture how awesome these shoes would look in person. Their awesome nature makes Iris Schieferstein both a fashionista and an artist worth noting.
