Maybe not. At least I had not previously envisioned koi fish (those glorious, enormous goldfish often seen gliding around in tanks at Japanese restaurants) as a template model for shoes. But it seems there are designers out there besides Marc Jacobs who use fauna as inspiration for their footwear designs- a good thing of course (logical can be ever so boring), however a tail protruding from each heel is on par to me with having mouse ears poking out of your toes.
Exhibit A: Trainers from sneaker freaker
Exhibit B: Stilletoes I came across at a museumHmm. I won't be crying "here fishy, fishy" anytime soon, but I must admit that it would cheer up the workplace if everyone's shoes had little eyes and mouths (feelers, wings... when to stop?). Now if Rick Owens designed a pair of bat boots or something, I might reconsider...
