At first, Errazuriz tried to exorcize his exes by painting their portraits, but obtaining their permissions proved difficult. He then toyed with the idea of shoes because “women love shoes, and in a tiny way, a part of their identity gets trapped there,” he told the New York Post. “I thought it would be ironic if I myself tried to capture a part of the personality of each one in a shoe,” he added.

Using a a MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer, Errazuriz summed up his paramours using key traits.

Using a a MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer, Errazuriz summed up his paramours using traits he remembered them by. “Honey,” a bright yellow wedge with an intricate honeycomb design, is based on a woman whom Errazuriz considered too sweet for his own good. “Crybaby,” which resembles a foot splashing into a puddle, tells the tale of a heartbroken lover who showed up at his door in tears.

“Heart-Breaker,” a red pump pierced through the heel with an arrow, represents the girl who broke his heart, while “G.I. Jane” is a paean to an ex with a military general for a father.

“The Virgin”, which features the likeness of the Virgin Mary, symbolizes the innocence of a former flame (who may or may not have become a nun). “The Rock,” an ode to the one who got away, is the only unwearable piece among the group. Perhaps Errazuriz means it to serve as a reminder that no matter how much we wish it otherwise, relationships, like shoes, don’t always fit.
