Artist Makes Statement with Painful Front-Heeled Shoes

Take a look at the photo of these front-heeled shoes and try to figure out what exactly is going on.

Is it the fashion world's hottest new trend? Will we be seeing Lady Gaga these galavanting in them any time soon?

The strange looking footwear is featured in an exhibit called "Scary Beautiful" by artist Leanie van der Vyver and Dutch shoe designer René van den Berg.

Scary Beautiful challenges current beauty ideals by inflicting an unexpected new beauty standard."
