//How do you tie the laces? //
Knitting needles, patience and a very steady hand. It could be a new 'executive toy'.

Is there any liquid in the bottle? Pickled sneakers?

It's like the Caramilk secret.

..pssst!....What's the Caramilk secret?

Do the shoes have some kind of rigging-like structure that can be erected by the pull of a string?
-- zen_tom, Jun 09 2005

I can't tell you. Their spys are everywhere.

It's certainly a really interesting way of selling footwear. Certainly would be a nice promotional tool for a new brand.

No, I'd be trying to figure out how anyone would do this. Tell me how and I'll take away this fishbone.

[baconbrain] - Plastic bottle: use memoryform plastic, heat plastic bottle until elastic, open up neck, insert shoe, cool bottle. Glass bottle: remove base of bottle while glass is still hot and pliable, cool bottle while leaving base heated, insert shoe, press bottle to hot base and fuse.

Using those fancy manipulator arms for keyhole surgery, a good cobbler could make a shoe inside a bottle. S/He'd just need some training on how to use the arms.

Annoyingly, after reading the "There was an old lady" starting I was so convinced it would be a limerick that I read it three times thoroughly trying to figure out how "thought" could rhyme with "head".

Well, I wrote one while in school (creative writing class)

There was a young penguin in drag, Who swore he was not a real fag; "But ice cubes are kinky, And dresses are slinky, And girl penguins just make me gag".

Back to the shoes: Does the cobbler get a wee cobbling stand in the bottle?

Oh, and a liter bottle would have a size 43 shoe, but a quart bottle would have a 10-1/2.

While walking on beach a man finds a shoe in a glass bottle on the tideline. Seeing a message in the shoe he breaks open the bottle to read: "Ha!, now no one will believe you found a shoe in a bottle" (+)

... and that, class, concludes today's lesson on how to write a parable.

+ I just added the extra bun to bring this over the top. Bottled shoes, gloves and undies...

Cloth shoes such as sneakers would be easier to get into a bottle and maybe out. It could be a new way to market sneakers and recycle old bottles.
