Japanese Woman Spotted Wearing Heels That Look Exactly Like Pigeons

We can’t get enough of these hilarious pigeon-themed high heels, seen on the streets of Japan. Created by Kyoto Ohata, they actually serve a well-intended purpose. Ohata, who often passes through an area filled with pigeons, was concerned that her human presence was upsetting them. They scatter as she comes through, which prompted her DIY shoes shaped as pigeons.

The end result is both fashionable and funny. Look below for our detailed instructions on how to make your own pair.

Similarly to how the side wings were made, create shapes to cover the tips of the shoes.
