Here are the Commes Des Garcons shoes. These really look like knock offs: http://bit.ly/zIT8q And, they pale next to the custom paintings done by Bart. Each one of Bart's shoes is a one-of-a-kind, based on his toe reading.

Bart and Sandi make great points. One of the best things about this blog is that it features artists like Bart who might not be well known but who have great ideas. While others might copy those ideas in this world of knock-offs, it's the artist/designer/creator who deserves all the credit.

I agree that Bart's concept is completely different and that very often creative concepts like Bart's are copied by large fashion houses. The goal of this blog is to promote creative innovations by artists like Bart.

Not exactly. My concept is different. They made a shoe with toes on, every shoe the same toes. What I do is personalising the toes on the shoe. Each shoe is unique and personal. Commes de Garçons is a big fashion house and I am just a small belgian (foot)artist. My patented concept is from 2006, their shoe is from end of 2009. The problem is, what can I do if a big fashion house copies my concept.
But if you want a handpainted unique artwork, you won't find it at Comme des Garçons.
The one with the biggest marketingbudget apparently wins. How sad, never mind.

Commes de Garcon has shoes exactly like this...
