Bizarre 'human skin' heels make you look barefoot, leaves fashionistas baffled

Fashion fans were baffled by a bizarre pair of shoes that make the wearer look like a barefoot otherworldly creature.

Hannah Rose Dalton and Steven Raj Bhaskaran of Montreal-based Fecal Matter created thigh-high 'human skin' heels made from silicon.

The duo are known for sharing their outlandish visuals of alien-like beings on their Instagram page, where snaps of the incredible shoes have been posted.

One fan wrote: "Oh my goodness I'm obsessed where can I get a pair of the shoes????

Another was confused by the unusual fashion item: "I had to stare at this for so long to understand".

A third fan wrote: "I always thought this was photoshop but it's even more badass that they're real shoes".

A Photoshopped image of the heels appeared in Vogue magazine earlier this year, confounding readers. The designers decided to make a real-life pair.

"Everyone was like, 'Is it Photoshopped? Is it not Photoshopped?' We wanted to put it out in real life," Steven said to Vogue in October.

Thus came the real-life 'Skin Heels,' which were painstakingly created by artist Sarah Sitkin to replicate Hannah's leg.

The thigh-high silicon footwear even has moles, little hairs, and uneven skin tones so it resembles an actual leg - except for the alien features of course.

"The shoe is like when you are going to Chanel to get a wedding dress. You get the fittings and the customisations. For even me to get the shoe, I have to stand and each of my legs have to be perfectly molded," Hannah said to the fashion magazine.

If you're after a pair for yourself, it'll set you back a whopping $10,000 to have them custom made.

The shoes reflect what Fecal Matter believes humans might eventually look like as a result of body modification, social media and advances in technology.
