Plant Pot Shoes

shoes that look like plant pots

Plant Pot Shoes are shaped in such as way as to make you look like you are a walking twin stalked shrub.

They are a bit bigger than the average shoe, but the extra internal supporting structure has been well designed to ensure that they are comfortable and not heat traps in the summer. The extra internal room can of course be used to accommodate other devices, like heaters, coolers, noise makers or lighting systems.

For added effect, simply wear the complimentary hairy shrub socks or green leggings. Standing still in the middle of public parks is encouraged by the makers, as is frequent poking (using a gardening tool) of the fake soil area where the legs disappear inside the actual pots.

though I'd feel clumsy in your pots, I'd try vases! [+] http://hurriyetdesi...g2009-red.jpg?w=460

       Are the "hairy shrub socks or green leggings" free? - or are they complementary?

       I thought this was going to be a special pair of shoes for surreptitiously sowing hemp seeds.

       Me too, only it was hemp's more interesting cousin I had in mind. Maybe work on the wording when you commercialize this? 'Shrubbery Shoes,' perhaps.
