Shoe selfies to the extreme?

 



I’ve been taking pictures of my shoes since before I had a smartphone and before the word selfie came into lingo.


These pictures above were all taken with a digital camera by bending over and snapping, to piggyback on the words of Legally Blonde.


But for some shoe selfie takers have decided to up the ante.


Refinery29 recently detailed a reporter strapping herself into a doorless helicopter just for shoe selfies. While the pictures are amazing, its over the top.


While that is experience is perfectly legal and with safety precautions, other shoe selfie takers are even more extreme.


For example, Instagrammer Tom Bruise, climbs bridges and roofs to get pictures with amazing backdrops. He even has been tapped by shoe and clothing brands to show their product on his shots, according to Refinery29.

As much as I like my shoe selfies, and post them almost daily on Snapchat, I couldn’t imagine going to these lengths. It’s amazing what people will do for the ‘gram and social media fame.
