Space Walk: High Heels That Look Like Meteorites

January 27, 2015

These are the Meteorite shoes created by Studio Swine for Microsoft (presumably for an ad, but possibly because Bill Gates has a meteor fetish). They 3-D scanned real meteorites from the Museum of Natural History, then used a milling machine to carve the shoes' outers from aluminum foam. The results are out of this world. Just kidding, the results are totally OF this world because a meteorite isn't a meteorite until it survives entry into earth's atmosphere. If they were out of this world they would be METEOROID shoes. Just a little astronomy lesson for you. Also, my penis is an event horizon.

Keep going for a couple more shots.

Thanks to Jeff S, who wants sun shoes that shoot fireballs with every step, like a way cooler version of those light-up shoes for kids.

  • Looks like a "Dave"

    What? No matching asteroid purse to go with them?

  • Those look awfully uncomfortable.

    "Honey, I bought you new shoes -What... what are these honey? 'Swine'? ARE YOU CALLING ME A PIG?"

    another hilarious bon mot from Freddick.

    It looks like tin foil.
    My first thought scrolling down the new articles was 'huh, somebody made high heel shoes out of tin foil'.

    Clearly that's where they keep their brains - and all the important information within them that needs hiding from the aliens.
