Equality Shoes?

These shoes are courtesy of Berlin-based artist Hans Hemmert who threw a party where guests wore shoe-extenders to make them all the same height of 2 meters. Height equality is going a bit lost on me as I tend to enjoy height hierarchy but here is more about the reasoning behind this art choice.

Personally, I don't think all closets are made equal. Some people just can't match a blue heel.

That is interesting. I, for one, always feels a little awkward when I have to look down on people -- makes me feel too superior. And people who I have to look up to make me feel inferior. I prefer looking people right in the eyes.

The concept is good but its execution is ugly. Equality is not supposed to be this ugly, is it? :)

Ha. I get the point but why does the point need to be so ridiculous looking? Noble concept, ridiculous execution.
