Dezeen’s top ten: shoes

This month we've compiled our ten most popular Dezeen stories about shoes.

In first place are the Mojito Shoes by architect Julian Hakes, which have no foot plate.

Second place goes to these slippers made of bread, hollowed out by twin brothers and designers R&E Praspaliauskas.

Zaha Hadid regularly makes it to our top ten features, this time with her boots for Lacoste that snap around the wearer's ankles thanks to a bi-stable metallic strip.

More from Zaha Hadid: her shoes for Brazilian plastic footwear brand Melissa are at number four.

And more from Melissa in fifth place, this time heels by Jean Paul Gaultier.

Sixth most popular are these shoes by Tracey Neuls featuring cast rubber soles and Sanderson fabrics.

Dutch designer Hella Jongerius' Tribute to Camper project comes in seventh.

Our eighth most popular shoe story features a giant, illuminated shoe containing a miniature city Dutch designers Freedom of Creation for Japanese footwear brand Onitsuka Tiger.

Jaime Hayon's shoes for Camper are in ninth place.


And we conclude our top ten stories about shoes with this pair made of a single piece of leather folded round a stainless steel support by Marloes ten Bhömer.

Oh okay, here are a few more...

Shoes inspired by the architecture of  Santiago Calatrava by Sarajevo designer Tea Petrovic

Trainers carved from wood by Paul Coudamy

Apprentice shoes by Doshi Levien

That really is it now. We'll be back with another top ten next month.
