We all know the stories of Greek mythology. We were taught them throughout our lives in school. Greek Gods, and their adventures. One of my personal favorites was Hermes the messenger god. His most iconic symbol was his winged shoes, so I thought to myself “what if I could have winged shoes? How would they work/function?” I wanted to have moving winged shoes; something that said “Hey look at me!” So I designed these attachable wings that can fit on any shoe, and work by tapping your heels together.
