A Lamp That Looks Exactly Like Sneakers Tossed Over Power Lines

Illustration for article titled A Lamp That Looks Exactly Like Sneakers Tossed Over Power Lines

If you're on the hunt for a truly unique lamp to accessorize your living room, Etsy is a far better place to start than Ikea. Because that's the only place you'll be able to buy this illuminating creation from Ricochet Studio that looks like a pair of shoes tossed over a power line.


Those shoes, however, are made from porcelain with halogen bulbs hidden inside. But while the sneakers are fake, the power lines aren't. They actually carry electricity to the shoes via their laces, and the sneakers can be adjusted and repositioned however you want them to hang.

There's only one of the Shoe Toss lamps left, though, and if you want to string it up in your home you'll have to scrounge up $2,000 and find a place where you're not going to be constantly clotheslined by the cables. [Etsy via Make]



This has always been one of those "things that make me go 'hmmmm'".

Why are there sneakers there ?

Other things that make me go "hmmm"...

- A half-finished soda in the MIDDLE concrete divider of a major highway (how'd it get there?)
- Graffiti in a place that is impossible to access (how'd it get there ?)
- Bricks on wall that are completely a differen color than those around it (why were they replaced?)
- VERY empty restaurants in the middle of nowhere or places that seem illogical (Do they really have customers?)
- Individuals walking down the middle of a busy street in the city (what are they thinking?)
- Cars that are packed to the hilt in the backseat with illogical stuff (I once saw a car in which the backseat had a TON of sterno.. and nothing but sterno... wow what a fire hazzard)
