‘Unravel Me’ Author Tahereh Mafi Shines In ‘Shatter Me’ Shoes

by Tahereh Mafi

I have two great loves in this world: shoes and books. And with the release of “Unravel Me” on the horizon, I wanted to have some fun combining these two ideas. So I decided to grab a pair of old boots and the book that started it all: “Shatter Me.”

“Shatter Me” is a dystopian novel about a girl with a lethal touch, but at its core it’s a book about a girl with a fractured heart and mind and how she learns to put the pieces of herself back together. These shoes are about making a point: that not only can you recover from being beaten and broken, but you can take what’s left and become something even more beautiful. Something that shines.

Enter: “Shatter Me” Shoes.

I created these boots using a pair of dearly loved but worn-to-bits Jeffrey Campbells (Brisbanes—original here), about 50 broken mirrors (purchased from my local craft store), and some really intense adhesive.

See the finished product after the jump!
