Classic Men’s Shoe Gets a Toothy Makeover

Fantich & Young

British design duo Mariana Fantich and Dominic Young crafted the Apex Predator shoes (shown here) and replaced the soles with 1,050 plastic dentures.

A British art duo has revamped the classic lace-up brogue just in time for Halloween.

Mariana Fantich and Dominic Young took a pair of size 15 Savile Row oxford shoes and replaced the soles with 1,050 teeth, the Daily Mail reported. The bizarre design uses plastic dentures, not real human teeth.

Fantich and Young crafted the shoes as part of their Apex Predator art line, which also features a suit made out of human hair, glass eyes and dentures. The pair's work "addresses parallels between social evolution and evolution in the natural world,” according to their website. 

The shoes are not for retail sale.
