Here Comes Santa / Bells are 2 video pieces by Sylvie Fleury. In Here Comes Santa a woman, wearing high heels, destroys Christmas baubles on a red carpet. Exactly the same happens in Bells except that it’s on a green carpet. Unfortunately these videos aren’t available online, except a very short excerpt of Bells. You’ll have to click on it to play it.

Jessica Sofia Mitrani made a series of shoes called “In A Single Shoe”. Maybe it’s just a strange fetish I haven’t heard of till today.
Rotational Moulding is an industrial production technique, used for creating many hollow plastic objects. Marloes ter Bhömer is a Dutch designer based in London, who took this technique to produce this shoe. I guess this is more some sort of conceptual exercise than a real product idea.
You can go and see this project, among many others, at the exhibition Brit Insurance Designs of the Year 2009 at the Design Museum in London till the 14th of June.
This video shows you how the Rotational Moulded Machine tumbles (without a mould though).
Gwendolyn Huskens is a student at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. She studies in the department of man and identity. Her project Medic Esthetic is about the beauty of imperfection. She used medical materials like synthetic plaster, bandages and stainless steel in white and skin tones, to make these shoes. The esthetics is superior to the wearability.
