There's a macabre quality to the shoes created by Marieka Ratsma, like they're forged of liquid skeleton and worn by some creature out of Guillermo del Toro's imagination. Which makes me, of course, love them (if not want to wear them) because I'm mildly obsessed with Mr del Toro and his creepy-comic world of gothic steampunk beings. Think of them as a sinister rendering of Cinderella's glass slipper, except made from bone or the teeth of small children. Creepyyyyyy.
