To fight Diarrhea, Heatherette designs shoe that looks like Clown Diarrhea.

Heatherette, aka former Club Kids fashion duo Travis Rains and Richie Rich, designed this "statue" of a running shoe (hard to tell from the pic, but it is several feet long) as part of the "Sneakers and the City" celebrity art exhibit in support of the Blue Planet Run Foundation (blueplanetrun.org), which is sponsored by that famously humanitarian company, Dow Chemical (got all that?).
Seems a great cause. Go to the site, donate money, etc. But now, back to that big shoe. Eh, it's fucking hideous? Would somebody please explain to me and my son of Appalachian Trail hillbillies aesthetic how this...thing is considered fashion, let alone art? Despite my roots, I think I have a good design sense, thanks to obsessing over ad visuals for 15+ years. Am I that hopelessly out of touch?
