I love the look of these Tyvek paper shoes. They super slim, sleek, and incredibly light-weight. After more than fifteen months of testing and research, the sneaker is ready and weighs in at a tiny total of 150g. Because the shoes are constructed with Tyvek, they’re not only lightweight, but also water-proof and perfectly breathable.
A few months back we covered Clash & Collide, a new initiative from our friends at adidas whereby artists and designers were invited to create collisions on paper based on at least one element of adidas originals, such as the logo, or a particular shoe/item of clothing.
Sometimes, you just don’t feel like carrying a purse. These Double Agent Shoes by Bellona Fashions Inc. provide the solution. They’ve created shoes with a secret compartment perfect for carrying your money, credit card, keys, and more. Feeling like a secret agent is just a bonus.
Sometimes, all we want to do is walk barefoot and feel the ticklish grass underneath our soles. These flip flops by Kusa should make it easy. The soles are lined with synthetic green turfs (what, did you think you were going to be walking on: flower pots?)
RayFish Footwear makes customised shoes from genetically engineered stingray skin. You can select a design online that scientists will then grow directly on a stingray before it’s skinned to make the kicks. I’m sure PETA will have something to say about this.

All the materials for each shoe are individually hand-cut and each shoe is assembled by hand. I want to own all of these beautiful shoes. They are colorful, full of life and pattern. And you feel good buying them because you are supporting a sustainable business that helps maintain artisan integrity.
Playful, sculptural, and abstract, there is no turning back once you look at these couture shoes by Marloes ten Bhömer, I never knew the range of expression my feet had. I need to talk my shoes out of their inferiority complex.
Designer Kobi Levi has designed these pairs of high heels. Called The Blow, one pair looks like part of an inflatable sex doll; the other pair illustrates the act of sex itself. The shoes aim to highlight how high heels are synonymous with sex.
Australian footwear label THE HORSE was founded upon an ethical vision of highest quality Italian leather for the fashioned gentleman, the discerning lady, and the recalcitrant youngster. Even better, they’re offering you 10 percent off until the end of September with the promo code ‘kareena’.
Christian Louboutin has created a crazy eight-inch heel shoe in the name of charity. As part of the English National Ballet’s The Summer Party auction, the designer created these insane Swan Lake style heels. Even though anyone who isn’t a trained Ballerina would snap their ankle in a second of putting them on, the sparkle […]
This is a really strong shoe, and lasts a long, long time. My dad says that you should replace your shoes every eight months, but I haven’t replaced these in a year and a half. I like running at night. It’s the only time New York City feels empty. There’s only Chinese men fishing in […]
