    Hickies ($15 - $18 for fourteen, depending on style) are little elastic straps that replace conventional shoelaces, and can turn any pair of shoes into slip-ons. Remember those laces from the 80's that looked like curly fries that you didn't have to tie either? Those were the... / Continue →

    This are the Adventure Time themed Dr. Martens coming out next month (available for pre-order in both men's and women's HERE). They cost $130 - $150 depending on the style and come in Jake, Finn, and little pictures of both. I have never owned a pair of Dr. Martens. Or JNCOs... / Continue →

    These are the Meteorite shoes created by Studio Swine for Microsoft (presumably for an ad, but possibly because Bill Gates has a meteor fetish). They 3-D scanned real meteorites from the Museum of Natural History, then used a milling machine to carve the shoes' outers from alu... / Continue →

    Honey? You've got shit all over your nice shirt. This is the Poo Emoji Button-Up Shirt available from Betabrand. It's currently on sale for $80 (from $88), which is still entirely too much to pay for a shirt with no sleeves. If I'm paying $80 for a shirt, you better believe... / Continue →

    According to a recent statement made by Nike innovation chief (yes, that's a real position) Tinker Hatfield (yes, that's the most appropriate name ever for an innovation chief), Nike will release Back To The Future II self-lacing Air MAGS later this year. No word how much they... / Continue →

    These are the Mozo Bacon N' Eggs Sharkz Shoes. They were made for working in a kitchen and cost $35. Did I mention they have bacon and eggs printed on the top of them? Because that's their big selling point. It's like breakfast, but on your shoes. Which is probably one of ... / Continue →

    These are the $99 officially licensed shoes made to look like the Nike power-laces Marty McFly wears in Back to the Future II. Except they're not Nike, and they don't cost thousands of dollars like the ones Nike actually made and auctioned off a couple years ago. I'm half tem... / Continue →

    These are PaleoBarefoot's $265 PRONATIV chainmaille running shoes. They're supposed to feel like running barefoot (except you can allegedly walk on LEGO blocks without any pain). It's not the first time I've posted PaleoBarefoot's chainmaille shoes before (previous post here)... / Continue →

    These are the Iron Throne high heels made by jewelry designer and shoe customizer Nixxi Rose. She used painted sword cocktail stirrers for all the swords. Pretty clever. I also included some BONUS Freddy Krueger, Hellraiser, zombie and Breaking Bad heels she's created after ... / Continue →

    These are two different styles of Marvel combat boots available from Wet Seal ($40 and $45). I'm not a big fan of the hodge-podge design, but that's just me and they don't make them in a men's 12 so they're out of the question anyways. Remember the old insult, "Your momma wea... / Continue →

    These are the Nike Air Force Ones customized by sneaker lover Sekure D with a Donatello theme. They remind me of when I was a kid growing up in Alabama my buddy Tyson and I would run around barefoot all summer trying to develop ninja feet. Ninja feet are when the soles of you... / Continue →

    These are the Hogwarts houses high heels hand painted by Redditor Smartypants and worn by her sister-in-law akasha446 and the bridesmaids in her wedding. I'm not sure if the girls were actually sorted into the house of the shoes they wore, but I would have stabbed whoever got ... / Continue →

    You know what perfectly melds comfort and functionality? Not 3-D printed shoes with an integrated iPhone holster, but too bad, that's what we're getting anyways. Plus your phone will get really dirty, and who doesn't love a dirty phone? I want to hold all that sidewalk dirt ... / Continue →
