10 Stunning Shoe Designs Inspired by Art Around the World

It's self implied that shoes are themselves works of art. However, this unique collection designed by Nicholas Adelman, inspired by 10 different art styles from around the world, showcases a fantastic point of view. Each design stands out on its own, by bringing together the most identifiable elements from a specific culture.
Here's a short description of the project and the concept behind it:

A Walk Through Art History
"I designed these shoes with a unique goal in mind: to create a shoe as a summation of an entire culture’s art. Each shoe possesses design qualities, color palettes, and designs only found in the respective culture. This project allowed me to investigate art historical cultures in a special way by challenging myself to translate an entire style (or series of styles) onto a single object."
