What do you wear with leg warmers that make you look like you have a mane growing down the back of your legs?

Why, $2100 shoes made from real horse hooves and fur of course!

UPDATE: Another fabulous photo of the hoof shoes - and that guy is well on his way to becoming a Satyr.

if i wanted my legs to look like that first picture, i would just stop shaving.

also, those hoof shoes make me cry.

Yeah but keep in mind that they are being featured at a festival at a RACECOURSE so you could assume that they are made of horses who were driven to their very limits by small men until something snapped and they had to be put down and then they were sawed up and used to make the shoes. So they died a natural, peaceful death after a rich and full life.

See? Don't you feel better?
