Circuit Board Sneakers

Gabriel Dishaw creates detailed shoe replicas out of metal and electronic scraps, using only glue and bending techniques to hold them together. So far, he’s created five shoe sculptures inspired by some of his favorite kicks, and although you probably wouldn’t want to wear them, they’re the ultimate statement shoe. Dishaw’s collection is made entirely out of recycled metal, bits of wire, staples, Intel computer chips, and even old typewriters. He even goes so far as to even make each shoe—which comes with a coordinating shoebox—a perfect size 9.5. Weighing in at anywhere from 5 to 20 pounds, these heavy-metal sneaks certainly weren’t designed for comfort, but their eco-factor is high. Wish I had these a couple weeks ago I could have been the Tin Man for Halloween. {via}
