To our collective delight and incremental curiosity, a committed designer and flâneur in Tokyo, informed by an alliterative pun as we are told many Japanese avant-garde ideas are, has fashioned pigeon-resembling high-heels using felt and paint, hoping to befriend the generally decried urban fowl. There are so far no reports on the efficacy of so disguising one’s feet and the artist is not planning on releasing such sensible shoes for public consumption, but that’s no reason not to make one’s own pair of Hato-Heels (ピジョンヒール) to make new acquaintances in the one’s own neighbourhood park.
