Fashion The Pan - Part XVIII

Written by: Brandon Fisher

Did you know that for the video for Smooth Criminal Michael Jackson patented a hitching mechanism that allowed him to do the anti-gravity lean? The system allowed for, “a shoe wearer to lean forwardly beyond his center of gravity by virtue of wearing a specially designed pair of shoes which will engage with a hitch member movably projectable through a stage surface. The shoes have a specially designed heel slot which can be detachably engaged with the hitch member by simply sliding the shoe wearer's foot forward, thereby engaging with the hitch member¹.”

I don’t think the designer Leanie van der Vyver licensed this patent for these heels, but something needs to be required so that this poor girl doesn’t shatter her kneecaps. When Michael Jackson would get up on his toes no one assumed he would try to walk around like that. It was just temporary until moon walking away. Now that’s what we need fashion Moon Walking Boots. And not the ones Neil Armstrong wore. I mean the ones Napoleon Dynamite wore. At least that way when you tumble by attempting to walk in them your ankles won’t dislocate.
