    This is a picture of a Converse All Star tattooed on some dude's foot. Why you'd go so far and not bother getting a sole added is beyond me, but I suspect it has something to do with 1. not wanting to deal with the pain or 2. running out of money. No word if there's anything ... / Continue →

    Boat shoes, yo. This is a shoe decorated by artist Phil Noto to looks like a battleship. As you can see, it has all the requisite battleshippy features. Most noticeably, a shit-ton of gray. Paint that thing green and you'd swear it was a tank! "No, no I wouldn't." *produc... / Continue →

    Jealous Old Woman who Lives in a Shoe is jealous. It actually gets zero feet per gallon because it's electric. It does get 250 miles to a single charge at speeds up to 30MPH though, which isn't bad. Still no word if it comes equipped with modern safety features like ankle so... / Continue →

    This is a Nike with a Nintendo Entertainment System built it. Allegedly it works. And allegedly I want it really, really badly. I assume the system's output is on the opposite side, where it hooks up to your other shoe, which has a little LCD built in. Freaking sweet! Just... / Continue →

    Vibram's line of FiveFingers shoes (shouldn't that be FiveToes shoes?) are, um, unique. As an owner of Nike Air Rifts (that just have the big toe separated), I find these oddly appealing, yet disgustingly disgusting looking. I just hope none of my winter gloves catch sight of... / Continue →
