Would You Wear These Japanese Hoof Sandals? – Design You Trust

Would You Wear These Japanese Hoof Sandals?

High heels are hard enough to walk in– but can you imagine wearing hoof sandals?

From the looks of things, learning to walk in them would take ages. And even then, there’s still the ever-present threat of a sprained ankle just waiting for you to make one false step. But hey, that’s just part of the package if you want to look like a magical faun.

Designed by Japanese company Walpurgis, these unique sandals are made of wood and with the option of either red, black, or white ribbons. The name itself, Walpurgis, is a reference to a mythical guardian for persons with malformations and idiosyncrasies.
