Gameboy Footwear fetish


The world of fashion has never been boring, as outlandish designs tend to rule the roost compared to traditional cuts and designs which are functional but never make a lasting impression. If you think fashion and technology cannot mix, think again. This pair of platform shoes actually managed to incorporate the best selling Nintendo Gameboy Color system into the sole itself. Too bad the Gameboy Color cannot be removed for you to get a quick fix of Pokemon while you wait for the bus to arrive.

While it looks extremely appealing, chances are they won't make it to the market anytime soon as they were created by Helen Red Richards and are meant to be used solely (pun not intended) as a museum exhibit. Judging by the way things are going, if platforms make a return to the fashion world 20 years from now, you'd probably see 8" high platforms which come with Gameboy Advance SP and Nintendo DS Lite consoles embedded inside.
