In a bid to encourage consumers to recycle their old gadgets, U.K. company O2 Recycle, has launched Walkie Talkies, which is a series of four pairs of classic shoes with recycled, functional cell phones in the soles.
World renowned brand, and a hot favorite with the women, Christian Louboutin, is a part of this project. The brand’s famous redsoles of a classic pair of heels have been revamped courtesy designer Sean Miles, who has fitted it with a functional phone. The other coveted shoes which are a part of this project include a men’s brogue, a Nike Air training shoe and a Hunter Welly.
This environment-friendly project comes at a high cost, with each pair of Walkie Talkies priced at $4,000. For those who do not want to shell out so much money, the March exhibit of the fashion phones will give you an opportunity to win one.
These shoes are clearly meant for talking!
