Here's something that might make you feel just a bit inadequate about your footwear. Media artist Anna Vasof's short video "Down to Earth" is a visual collection of quirky and inventive shoes. The work—which feels a bit like the fashion version of Alexander Calder's circus—shows unusual pairs that move and perform with each step the artist takes. It starts with a pair of seemingly normal boots, which eventually reveal roots hidden beneath the dirt. It only gets crazier from there, with shoes that stamp, open umbrellas, and open books.

Check out the video above to see all 28 pairs in action.
