The “Walking Shelter” shoes was designed as a concept for the Australian company Gorman. Designed by SIBLING, a collective based in Melbourne, Sydney and Amsterdam, this strange pair of sneakers actually “hides” a full size tent, stored in the heels.  According to its designers,  the shoes were aimed to serve as instant shelter whenever it could be needed.

“The Walking-Shelter is a human shelter stored within a pair of sneakers. Stored compactly in integrated net pockets within the shoe, the shelter expands out and around the body to form an enclosure that relies on the human frame as a supporting structure.

The shelter accommodates for the body in a variety of ways and can be customised by the user to adapt to a variety of contexts and environments.This project was developed as a one-pff prototype and auctioned off, with all proceeds going towards Little Seeds Big Trees.”

At first sight, this project may seem harebrained and the concept totally pointless. On second thought, the idea could have enormous potential in situations like disasters or any emergency situation…
