Gummy Blundstone Boot
Client: Personal project
Flesh shoe and gummy shoe? Contrary to what it may seem, I don't have a shoe fetish.
Jamie Mageau and I made this boot for an art charity auction. Every year Blundstone has an art boot auction to sponsor Sketch, a local Art habitat slash awesome studio space for street kids.
The boot is real gummie, just like a gummie bear. We made it in a kitchen, it's edible, and it's 6400 calories! Hopefully the person that won it doesn't eat it - there should be a complimentary gym membership included...
The box is clear but mirrors the same folds as a real Blundstone box would have, including a very slick Blundstone logo Jamie frosted onto the package.
Before being auctioned the shoe was featured on CityTV Toronto and displayed at the Bata Shoe museum in Toronto.
