Amazing Crocheted Shoes - as part of the series on arts by GeoBeats.
Crochet garments can be found everywhere but have you ever wondered what else can be crocheted?
Few people know more about the creative possibilities with crochet than Olek, an artist of Polish origins.
Recently, she showcased a striking set of crocheted shoes. There are multiple styles including a peep toe heel, a traditional high heel pump, a kitten heel, and a “Nike” high top. Pink, teal and gold play a recurring role in the footwear. There are also undertones of dark blue, purple and grey. Olek claims each crochet pair is a remembrance of ex-lovers. The casual Nikes are a strong depiction of running from the past.
The shoe line seems to be just one of the many aspects of her jaw-dropping work. She speaks of her art by stating ” Anything that enters my private zone will eventually be transformed by my crochet hook."
How do you like the crocheted work?
