These artworks are made from recycled shoes that take on sculptural forms. Old shoes are transformed into animals, faces, and abstractions. Jennifer Merdjan and her artistic shoe sculptures were featured on Univisions's Control TV Show. Please see the media link to view the video segment. Jennifer explains in her work "My present strides have helped me understand my past steps and walk into the future." These sculptures are also part of her book titled If Shoes Could Talk.

Behind their whimsical, creative, and playful exterior, these shoes convey deep messages, capturing past steps, transcending present strides, and marking future aspirations.
