The first time I learned about this shoes dubbed “Scary Beautiful” I was like “it isn’t scary beautiful, it is just scary and it is even ugly”. I didn’t know yet of the story behind its creation or its invention, I just blurted out the judgement based on first impression. After fully understanding how it was made, I realized it is indeed “scary beautiful”. I appreciate the idea, creativity and the goal of the makers of this shoes.
The goal of this shoes it to “challenge our current beauty ideals by inflicting an unexpected new beauty standard.” Based on my understanding on that quoted line, it is implying us to check on what really is the real beauty. Oftentimes we get the idea of what is beautiful through perfect things – perfectly-proportioned body, perfectly-toned skin and the likes, which are all fake but we all expect to be anyway.
I have come up a (I dare call it) beauty equation of this beauty standard. It is like having the feet of a ballerina + the upper body of a hunchback = a female human dinosaur.
So, what if it is the new standard of beauty, will you wear this shoes? I might try it on me if I get a chance but will never sport it round or tire myself walking on it around. Sitting all day would be fine to wear this shoes and could be perfect to scare away perverts.
