The result of an exhibit called "Pimp My Pump", Lazy Oaf's off-the-wall designer shoes are inventive one-offs all using the classic plimsol as a canvas.

Definitely in the same vein as French artist Manu Angot and our own Seth Brau, the collection includes works by such up-and-coming talents as Kate Moross, Brennan & Burch (pictured right) and Peskimo (pictured center). We like them all, but Shevonne Bliss' trompe l'oeil version (pictured left) are pretty irresistible for chasing away those endless-winter blues.

Each pair is one-of-a-kind and made using materials that aren't necessarily street-safe, which means they might be more functional as sculptures than as footwear. They start at £35 from Lazy Oaf.
