New York Puts Best Foot Forward

The April 28 issue of New York magazine may have the stars of Gossip Girl on its cover, but the feature well starts off on another foot, with editor-at-large Adam Sternbergh‘s nimble article on feet (“You Walk Wrong“). Critical to encouraging readers to hunker down for a 5,000-word romp through podiatry research, walking classes, and no fewer than two quotations by Transcendalists are the trompe l’oeil shoes (like the pseudo-Adidas pictured above) scattered throughout the story in photographs by Tom Schierlitz. Creating a classic wingtip, a Christian Louboutin stiletto (watch out, he recently won a legal battle to trademark that red sole), and the above soccer shoe out of makeup on bare feet were Temptu body artists John Maurad and Jenai Chin. And if their feat wasn’t enough to pique your interest in reading the article, try this snippet, which is the best sentence we’ve read in a while:

Galahad Clark never intended to get into the shoe business, let alone the anti-shoe business. And he likely never would have, if it weren’t for the Wu-Tang Clan.
