London-based creative agency The Or. has seized the opportunity to capitalize on the Barbie craze. Introducing “Fantastic Plastic Foot Shoes,” a whimsical heeled boot inspired by the beloved doll’s feet, the brand offers a unique and campy fashion piece through an exclusive auction. The shoe’s winner will have the chance to select from various flesh-tone shades and sizes for their custom shoe, which mimics the look of a foot with sleek and shiny plastic-like uppers and arched soles sitting atop clear heels.
Whimsical Footwear for a Charitable Cause
The auction for the “Fantastic Plastic Foot Shoes” will conclude on July 27th, with seven bids already setting the price at GBP 121 or $158.44. A remarkable aspect of this venture is that all proceeds from the auction will be donated to charities supporting girls’ education worldwide.
