Iris Schieferstein's Bizarre Horse Hoof Boots (UPDATE)

 - May 9, 2009
There are pony shoes (see related trends below), and there are real pony shoes like this macabre pair of footwear from designer Iris Schieferstein. They are a pair of hollowed-out horse hooves that have been outfitted with a zip-up leg. This is an extreme fusion of fashion and taxidermy.

As horrifying as these shoes may be to horse lovers, they really are the icing on the cake of her macabre dead animal creations. I also adore her long horse tails, which are again made from real horse hair.
