Heavy Machine - Shoes or Art?

At what point do shoes become more than just a piece of functional footwear? Innovative brand Heavy Machine introduces us to shoes that are more than just your average pair of high heels, they are modern pieces of fashionable art. The trailblazing brand finds its inspiration in the strong, sturdy lines of industrial machinery, hence the name.

For Summer 2012, Heavy Machine has created futuristic designs with solid architectural shapes. Leather lined geometrics with angled cut-outs are appended to chunky lacquared heels in dazzling colour-blocked brights like turquoise, yellow and coral. Heavy Machine holds no restraints when it comes to bold creativity. These avant-garde pairs may not be timeless classics, but they certainly do pack a punch.






Shoes or Art? You decide...

I love the shape and candy colours, I believe its both!!!!
Have a great week dear!!!

VintageDanielle said...

WOW, love the colors but I wouldn't dare walk in them. I could see stars like Lady Gaga or Nicki Minaj wearing them on the red carpet.

rolala said...

These are certainly eye catching and artfully designed. They do look more like works of art than functional footwear to my practical eyes.

Hope you're having a lovely week dear!

I think they'd look great with a really simple outfit...
With the clothes I wear they'd be way too much :(

Ember Drake said...

Oh wow this collection is amazing - such unique shapes and vibrant colours! But for me personally - definitely more art - I'd probably be unable to walk in some of those heels! :-)

Denise said...

I do like them, I have some pairs that are considered "strange" - well, somehow I like "show shoes" :) But never something too futuristic - although I loved these shoes and I'd wear some of them, my favorite was the blue one!

Daniella said...

Hi sweetie,these shoes are striking! They would certainly make a statement and give cool,edgy angles to any look!! Thank you for sharing this with us Sam :)

Take care,Daniella xox

Punctuation Mark said...

Art! No way I could walk on those... Ha!

Purvi said...

Shoe art I guess, but not timeless in my opinion

The Jones said...

These are totally art to me...I just love how crazy and creative footwear has gotten lately! It's fun to look at and can really amp up an outfit. Someday I'll have some killer heels lke these.

Lilli-Lilz-LHOPE- Which ever one of those you might want to call me. x] said...

These are both art and shoes to me, because I would defiantly wear all of them! Thanks for posting. ^-~

Paolita@BerryHaute said...

Interesting question, I've always though of Fashion in general as art you can wear and these shoes definitely fit the description.
Hope all is well hun, been traveling and under the weather but always try to drop as soon as I get a chance.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

Wow! I think most of these are very pretty art work, but there are definitely a few in the mix that I would love to actually wear.

Vanisha @ Vanishas Life In...Australia said...

These look good but no really something I would wear. I think they are art but hey, if you can rock them, why not? I won't begrudge just because I know I couldn't ;)

Sara Shoemaker said...

I say... Art. I personally wouldn't ever wear those shoes just because of how blunt and sharp they are. But that's just my style. The designs are really trail blazing as you say! Unlike anything I've ever seen!

Josie said...

I really love statement shoes like this! I think these are examples of fantastic fashion design, sometimes I get a little bored with fashion being compared to art. I hate when fashion has to be justified as 'art' when it's a little crazy or out there. xxx

fashion kats said...

Shoes and art!! Very beautiful!

hope in high heels said...

Totally wearable but I think I would treat them more as art and display them somewhere prominently in my home and just admire them!

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

they definitely make a statement!

Scent of Love said...

Hey girls the shoes are amazing...Yes they are Art!!! The best compliments to the designer!!

What is art? Isn't it something should be meaningfull in our life? Art need to be in daylife not in the museums only!

So...

Buy them and wear them...I know havy machine shoes are very confortable!
