Tin Plate Shoes

They look like tin toys

A collection of high fashion casual street shoes that use art lithographed tin plate bonded to man-made breathable and flexible materials. They would have a cool, metallic finish with bright future retro artwork reminiscent of '50s tin robots and car toys. Some could have lights or wind up keys.

       Strangely, I like this...

       I'm seeing mine as a pair in bright yellow and red with big white numbers on them. (Don't know why numbers -- just seemed to fit: kinda like thunderbirds meets bowling shoes). I'd want mine slightly pre-rusted to give that really austhentic retro look.   

       Winding up the shoes should allow extra moving parts and maybe even a flint that throws sparks out the back the way some old tin robots do.   

       Strangely, I like this too...   

       Where can I order? (read: please bake this!)

       I'm thinking Campbell's soup or Heinz baked beans.
