Tokio Kumagai Tabero Kutsu eating shoes 1984 (2)

Would you eat bacon shoes? Would you eat red-bean rice shoes? Better still, lick ice-cream sundae shoes?

The model question here is, has everything in the fashion innovation world been exhausted?

Tokio Kumagai (1947-1987) first produced his Shoes To Eat (Taberu Kutsu) series in 1982 reviving Elsa Schiaparelli’s trompe l’oeil technique from the 1030s.

Obviously, these shoes are not edible; they were created using Japanese plastic food-sample production methods, but darn! These shoes are inventive.
