Artist Sebastan Errazuriz recently created a line of 12 unique shoes in tribute to 12 of his ex-lovers. Each shoe is designed to represent the lasting emotional impact these relationships had on him. The results are stunning and provocative.

Along with the symbolism of the shoe itself, the viewer is provided with a written anecdote about, and in some cases photos of, the lover it was inspired by. Errazuriz worked with the shoe company Melissa to produce the exhibit titled “12 Shoes For 12 Lovers.”

The shoes, which were 3D printed, could theoretically be made into functional shoes, but in an interview with core77 the artist stated that he envisions them as little sculptures.
