Don't know if they're real, Don't know that I like them, uuuhm... I just don't know? Do you? This just in.... Made by German designer Iris Shieferstein, the footwear is actually created from body parts of dead animals. She uses horse hooves and skin, snake skin and even whole dead birds as decorations. Can you say YUCK!!!! A side note question, what's the difference in this and a fur coat, calf skin jacket, Leather purse, snake skin boots, etc... just the hooves???
