Storytelling Shoes: Artist transforms shoes into sculptures that tell a tale

Before you throw out those old shoes, consider the work of Greek born Israeli artist Costa Magarakis, who loves to transform different footwear into sculptures that tell their own stories.

From former skating shoes and high heeled wedges to sporty trainers and big boots – Costa’s imagination runs wild, taking inspiration from Victorian inventions and classical fiction. You can almost imagine them leaping from the pages of a Jules Verne novel.

Alas, you can’t actually don Costa’s creations. They are made of reinforced stone hard resin or high quality fiberglass and aren’t wearable. However, you can purchase a sculpture of your own, as he sells his one-of-a-kind pieces via Etsy. To find out more, visit www.costamagarakis.com.
