Artist Creates Pentium 1.0 Shoes From Old Chips

I wouldn't classify myself as a 'fashionista' but even I know that old school Nike sneakers have been back in style for a while now. They're not exactly like they were back in the day; they're a little bit newer and a little bit more modern, but that's what happens when you take a classic shoe and try to put a modern spin on it. Either that, or you end up with a shoe named the Blazer Pentium 1.0 and made it out of circuit boards.

The incredibly talented Gabriel Dishaw's most recent sculpture doubles as the perfect pair of shoes for any hardcore geek. That is, any hardcore geek with size 9.5 feet, the ability to actually walk around in shoes that weigh 15 pounds and the willingness to endure the pain that would inevitably come from wearing circuit boards on your tootsies.

Check out the pics below and hit up Gabriel's website for more images of this faboo piece of junk art.

*Figured I'd get that out of they way.

    I'm not a lawyer, but I think this falls under fair use like satire and such. That is very cool. I bet Nike could sell quite a few pairs of real sneakers that had a print design like that on them.
