More mutant footwear: convertible sneakers/flip flops

Convertible_flipflop_sneake_2

It’s a mark of how changeable the British weather is right now that The Fashion Police found ourselves looking at the images above and thinking, "Actually, we can kind of see how those bad boys might come in handy sometimes…"

That’s not to say we like them, of course – they are multicloured baseball boots after all – but hey, who hasn’t found themselves thinking, "Damn, but I wish I could just zip the tops off my sneakers and turn them into flip flops"? Anyone? ANYONE?

These cost somewhere in the region of £110, according to Fashion Police Cadet, Alexia, who reported them to us, and if all those zips are anything to go by, it looks like you can convert them, not just to flip flops, but to different heights of ugly sneakers, too. If that sounds like the kind of thing you might want to do, you can order a pair here.

    Well.. Where to start? If all the zips were usable I might prefer them – then you could really play around with the idea. But as it stands they are purely decorative and it just looks a bit messy and crowded.
    If they were cheaper I might prefer them… If they were… different shoes I might prefer them!
    I like the idea, as you say in this climate versatility is great but.. couldn’t they have taken the concept and done better with it? A+ for the idea and the effect, but not for the finished product..

    Agreed, Helen – personally I think it looks like a child’s shoe, and I try to steer clear of clothing that looks like it belongs on toddlers!
