Many will agree, there is something incredibly irresistible about a woman in a hot pair of stilettos -- unless she accidentally just stepped in elephant sh**. That didn't stop London-based designer INSA
from creating elephant dung shoes.
Featuring a 10-inch platform, these poo-stacked heels were made in response to the famous work of Chris Ofili
, who used elephant dung in all of his paintings. INSA retraced Ofili's footsteps from over 15 years ago and used dung from the same family of elephants. Just to be clear -- we're not talking about dung taken directly off the ground and slapped on the shoes -- the material is treated to avoid putrefaction (something the strippers in first century
most likely missed out on).
