These shoes by Rene van der Berg Feature Backwards Heels

The backwards high heels has everyone wide eyed and on the edge of their seats.

How anyone can pull of this fashion accessory boggles my mind. Not only are they designed to be worn backwards, they are rather huge and stocky. Designers Rene van der Berg and Jan Taminiau admittedly agree that these shoes are not for the general public but are instead a pioneering work of art pushing the barriers of fashion perfection.

It is their goal to generate a new paradigm of innovative fashion style and create new meaning to the term ‘fashionable.' The design style of dizzying spiral cascade is a proper description of one that is so radical that it actually confuses one before liking it.
