- A rare shoe invention has sparked huge debate among netizens
- In viral photos that emerged on social media, the shoe was crafted in the form of human feet
- Many thought it was a weird and awkward shoe, others remarked that it gives them the creeps
Creativity is said to involve breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way, but an unusual shoe invention has torn social media users apart.
The shoe style, in photos shared on Twitter by @LifeOfNapaul, was modelled after a human-feet.
The Twitter user expressed shock that such a shoe style exists.
Like normal footwear, it also came in different sizes, colours and shoe packaging.
Many tweeps frowned at the footwear they described as awkward and weird. Some thought it looked scary. There were those who hilariously said it was made for Celestian faithfuls, a group of Christians in Nigeria popular for walking barefooted.
"Make Our Auntys Dem No Carry eye See this1..our whatsApp nogo be the same again..
"Ritualists Cuts Human Feets"
"When you thought you have seen it all then....Boom!! You open Twitter"
"This that Air Celemax. Incorporate and umbrella and leather patch for the JW dons. Talk about inclusivity"
"Later nah one preacher will say that we should not wear it nah leg of queen of ghost...."
"Do they expect the toes to fit into the toes of the shoe cos not everyone has the same type of toes."
Meanwhile, Briefly News earlier reported that fashion giant Gucci has released a virtual pair of shoes, the Gucci Virtual 25 sneaker, for use in apps like Roblox or VRChat. They are available for purchase o the Gucci app.
There are two versions available the high-end pair costs $12.99 (R220) and the cheaper pair costs $8.99 (R130).
The sneakers were designed by Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele and are loud enough to be stand out and over the top, something people are unlikely to wear in real life according to The Verge.
