With prosthetic limbs designed to look like a human foot, wearing a shoe is no problem. But the unique shape of those carbon fibre prosthetic blades worn by athletes obviously can't accommodate a traditional shoe, so Nike invented a new one.
Krispy Kreme (of all companies) created a similar kind of sandal as part of a promotion a few years ago, but Kusa's grass flip flops have two distinct differences. They're made with artificial turf, and you can actually buy them.
Thanks Prada for once again completely befuddling me when it comes to high fashion. Because while I certainly love the designs of classic American automobiles, I would never have thought to apply their iconic spoilers and taillights to high-heeled shoes.
Until today I've never even considered putting a case on my iPhone. Naked and free is the way I prefer to use it. But that all changed when I gazed upon this case featuring Vans' iconic waffle sole tread.
Xylitol is a natural sugar substitute that's been around since the '60s. You can find it in products like chewing gum, sweeteners—even sinus nasal sprays. But the most incredible use so far has to be its integration into the Louis Garneau Carbon Pro Team shoes.

I love shoes. I love dogs. So how much do I love these art sculptures of dogs made from shoes? More than dogs love to eat shoes. Dogs. Shoes. Love. YES. They're made by Vinti Andrews, who repurposed classic Nikes like the Air Max 1, Air Force 180 and Dunks to create this sorta vibrant and fiery pet art.
