More or Less: Andreia Chaves Invisible Shoe & Sole Boutique Posh Fairest Shoe
I remember watching a TV show once that described how an invisible suit could be possible using technology that, in laymen’s terms, would involve a suit with tiny cameras all over it that record what is behind the person wearing it. These images are then projected to the front of the suit, which would essentially render one invisible, like becoming part of the background (similar to what is described here). I thought that was pretty cool and something that seems similar in concept to the Andreia Chaves Invisible Shoe (above). This shoe doesn’t use high-tech cameras, but it does use all-over mirrored pieces that reflect whatever is around the shoe, which would have the effect of it blending into its surroundings. But, despite that, I imagine that these aren’t the type of shoes that actually blend in when worn – these are futuristic, showstopping shoes made for being seen and garnering attention wherever they go. But, all that hype doesn’t come cheap: Priced at $3,995.95 at Solestruck, they fall way out of the realm of possibility for many of us.
When I saw the Sole Boutique Posh Fairest Shoe at Karmaloop, I immediately thought of the Invisible Shoe. It isn’t exactly like it, of course, but appears to be inspired by it with its reflective mirror patches and an overall similar silhouette. But, this bold look can be had for well over 3K less – You can find it for $86 at Karmaloop. Coupon code 10OFF takes $10 off your order for a limited time (expiration unknown).
