Designer Makes Shoes Out Of Real Dead Animals



/>

/>German designer Iris Shieferstein creates footwear using body parts of dead animals.

/>

/>In her series of shoes, horse hooves and skin, snake skin, and dead birds are used as raw materials.

/>

/>According to Oddity Central, Schieferstein collects dead animal parts from her butcher for her unique footwear.

/>

/>Schieferstein strips the meat and bones off the carcasses, and sends the skin to the tanner to be preserved. After that, she sets the fur skin around the model of a shoe.

/>

/>For horse parts, she uses the hoof as a sole.

/>

/>Schieferstein told Oddity Central: “When I’ve got the dove shoes on that are made from real birds, I feel like I’m flying,” she says.
