Copenhagen-based artists Stephan Friedli and Ulrik Martin Larsen of 'studio PUTPUT' created a series of abstract shoes. The duo used commonly found household items to make artistically re-imagined shoes.

The team used a wide variety of non-traditional materials including sausages, balloons and stacked rocks. Among the most creative abstract shoes, there is a model that uses high-piled ribbons. Another shoe uses actual hair. The artistic team uses heels or soles from other shoes and places random items on top in the shape of a shoe.

This clever use of common household goods allows viewers to see the artists' creativity while seeing an average object in a new light. From fresh fruit to sliced bread, this design duo is able to transform anything into a stylish piece of footwear.
