Designer Creates 12 Surreal Shoes Representing 12 Exes

“Jetsetter” Jessica

12 Shoes for 12 Lovers is a creative collection of sculptural footwear by New York-based Chilean designer Sebastian Errazuriz that is inspired by his past personal relationships. Each shoe boasts a unique design that reflects on a specific woman from his past. The twelve shoes are each titled after the ex-lover that inspired them and accompanied by a brief description of their relationship on his blog.

From the frosty “Ice Queen” Sophie to the sweet “Honey” Natasha, Errazuriz manages to recreate his relationships, which have since gone south, as wearable shoes. “The Boss” Rachel is even a multipurpose piece that works as both a high heel and a vicious weapon.

Though Errasuriz shares a few images of women standing in some of the shoes, there are plenty that seem quite impossible to actually walk in, like “Gold Digger” Alison or “Jetsetter” Jessica. However, the designer’s intention lies beyond functionality. Instead, the series is a documentation of love, relationships, and personal vulnerability.
