Introducing the new Nike Lebron X ‘Cork’ sneakers.
Of its new minimalist footwear, launching spring 2013 for £110, per pair, Nikeblog sez:
The Nike Studio Wrap is a three-part footwear system comprised of a wrap, ribbon and flat and designed to offer a better-than-barefoot experience while solving the myriad issues that accompany simply not wearing shoes. The ribbon and wrap ensure some stability and support without hindering range-of-motion at all, with a minimal sole that offers a bit of protection and maximized flexibility. And unlike shoes, the wrap and ribbon can easily be tossed in the wash with the accompanying mesh storage bag, ensuring easy cleaning and portability.
In fairness, if you had legs like that you could wear a pair of empty Tayto bags.

By Israeli designer Kobi Levi who sez:
The combination of the image and footwear creates a new hybrid and the design/concept comes to life. The piece is a wearable sculpture. It is “alive” with/out the foot/body. Most of the inspirations are out of the “shoe-world”, and give the footwear an extreme transformation. The result is usually humoristic with a unique point of view about footwear.
In this case, the unique point of view is that the shoes look like birds.
