"Jimmy Chews"

A SATIRE ON FOOTWEAR

What makes some footwear so painful? Is it the material? Humanities unquenchable desire for acceptance, thus confining us to unnatural standards of beauty? Regardless of the reason, stiletto heels are not made with comfort in mind.  

Lucky for you, now there's a way to embrace both style and comfort: with gummy heels. That's right -- made from a real gummy bear exterior to gummy worm soles, you'll never complain about painful footwear again. Who says style can't be comfortable? It's the most delicious pair of shoes you'll ever step foot in.

THE PROCESS

Besides wire for support, the "Jimmy Chews" are made of 100% real gummies. It was adhered by briefly melting each gummy.

The shoe was created for a avant-garde material challenge. It was made with the help of this 5 pound bag of gummy bears. 

Don't worry, I ended up eating most of them.
