While it is hard to create something that has never been done before (and looks good) it never stops a maker/designer from trying his best to do so. These notable styles above represent a bit of fresh air from the usual stuffy styles that are created by every other shoe company in existence. While I really do love classic models (albeit with a twist) I think that I become more excited when something new is created, put into production and comes out actually looking like a respectable shoe and not something that belongs in a circus. But it is not easy to do so and I applaud any maker/designer that is able to accomplish this feat.
