Wear Your Favorite Instagram Pics on Your Adidas Kicks

Adidas Instagram Shoes

Taking shoe customization one step farther is Adidas with their soon-to-be-released app, which allows you customize a pair of Adidas ZX Flux training shoes using your favorite Instagram shot. From selfies and groufies to scenic shots and photos of your favorite things, the possibilities are endless.

You might want to reconsider that selfie though because you wouldn’t want to give anyone the chance to step all over you literally now, would you? (Sorry about that, couldn’t resist!)

The app will be released with iOS and Android compatibility this August.

Saucony Hamburger Sneakers Look Good Enough to Eat–Well, Almost

Saucony Burger Shoes1

These sneakers might not look out of the ordinary if you look at them from the front, but check it out from all sides and your stomach might just begin to rumble. Not that it actually looks like a burger that you could sink your teeth into, but it’s clear where its designers drew inspiration for its design.

The Shadow 5000 Burgers sneakers are a result of the collaboration between Saucony and End Clothing. I guess you can think of it as some sort of ode to burgers, which has grown in popularity over the years.

B-Shoes Are For the Clumsy: Smart Fall Prevention Shoes

B-Shoe

If you’ve got two left feet and trip over stuff a lot, then you might need to trade in your Chucks for this pair of shoes. These B-Shoes are uniquely-designed footwear with an integrated fall prevention system to make sure that you stay upright–at least while you’re wearing them, anyway.

Kidding aside, the B-Shoes were made especially for older folks who are prone to spills due to their age and perhaps slower reflexes. The shoes aren’t called smart for nothing, as they prevent falls by kicking into action when they detect that the wearer has lost his balance and is about to fall backwards.

3D-Printed Sneakers are Flexible, Foldable, Durable

Recreaus Foldable Sneakers

“Prepare for the unexpected” is what they always say. While you can’t exactly prepare for every single thing, you could take a cue from past experiences to prepare for the inevitable. For example, if your friends have a habit of inviting you out at the last minute for a game of basketball, then it might be a good idea to keep a pair of sneakers in your car, right?

If you don’t drive, then the Sneakerbot II is a good option. These 3D printed sneakers were inspired by Back to the Future and Star Wars, and it shows in its design, which was done by Recreus founder Ignacio Garcia. Using his company’s new Filaflex 1.75mm filament, the resulting 3D-printed sneakers can be bent and folded so you can just fold them up and throw them into your bag or briefcase.

You can download the 3D files for the Sneaketbot II HERE.

Cool Horizontal Shoe Rack

horizontal-shoe-rack-11781

This doesn’t do a whole lot more than hold your shoes. And it doesn’t do anything really fancy with them, aside from holding them up off the floor. Sure, it’ll probably not work too well with heavy boots but it’ll be fine for almost everything else. And you’ll be able to mop the floor without having to move your shoes, so there’s that, which is nice.

It’s $80.

There’s No Data Like Home: The Motherboard of Shoes

Motherboard Shoes

Dorothy’s magical ruby slippers took her home if she clicked her heels thrice and repeated, “There’s no place like home.” While this pair of shoes by Steven Rodrig won’t take you home no matter how many times you click your heels, it’s the pair that all geek girls who have a passion for data will want to have. Not because they want to wear it or anything (because it looks incredibly painful if they were to do so) but because they just want to marvel at the awesomeness of it.

Steven used old printed circuit boards from discarded computers and electronics to create this unique pair. He’s actually well known for his PCB art, and these shoes dubbed as “There’s No Data Like Home” have been featured numerous times. In fact, it was displayed at an exhibit recently in New York before Steven finally decided to part with it and listed it on his Etsy shop.

Sebastian Errazuriz’s ’12 Shoes for 12 Lovers’ are Wearable Art With Rich Backstories

12 Shoes for 12 Lovers-2

Relationships, regardless of how serious they are, will impact your life in one way or another. This is specially true in Sebastian Errazuriz’s case, who used his past relationships and experiences with ex-girlfriends as inspiration to create 12 Shoes for 12 Lovers. It’s essentially a collection of twelve shoe sculptures that capture the essence of the women and the relationship that he had with them.

For example, the shoe pictured above, “Cry Baby” Alexandra, is about a weeping girl who came to him after a particularly bad break-up. Another shoe in the series, “Gold Digger” Alison, is about a girl who left him for her rich boss (exactly what the name implies.)

You can find the rest of the shoes in the series after the break.

Fairy Tale-Themed Footwear: Walk Happily Ever After

Fairy Tale Footwear

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen princess or fairy tale-themed footwear, and I doubt this will be the last. This latest collection is by designer Charlotte Olympia and it’s aptly called “Once Upon a Time.” The line is part of her Fall 2013 collection and features everyone’s favorite princesses, like Rapunzel and Cinderella, to well-known and beloved characters like Puss in Boots and the Frog Prince.

Each whimsical pair in the line carries Charlotte’s signature style. Considering that a pair of shoes from her line normally costs several hundred dollars (and upwards!), you can probably expect the same less-than-happily-ever-after price tags for this collection.

You can check out more designs from “Once Upon a Time” after the break!Continue Reading

High Tide Heels

high_tide_heels

I have a friend who goes to the beach in high heels. Really. I know. But hey, I don’t judge. Much. The point is I thought of her when I saw these shoes. They’ve been around for a few years, but I only now found out about them. They’re called High Tide Heels and appear to have been an art exhibit by Paul Schietekat. They’re not for sale, and according to him, not wearable. I still think my friend should have a go in them because at least then she’d have somewhat of an excuse to wear heels on the beach.
