We have seen some crazy shoes in our time, from Alexander McQueen high heels to Jeremy Scott sneakers, and yet these warship shoes from Phil Noto still have me stunned. Perhaps this is some kind of sci-fi battleship and its weapons have been set to stun.

Designed and created for a custom sneaker art show held at the Bold Hype Gallery in New York City, Phil Noto's warship shoes are definitely worth being on display.

Considering that Phil Noto's background is in animation, having worked for Walt Disney for ten years, and comic books, I should not be surprised that his custom sneaker took on such an imaginative form. Heavily influenced by 60s and 70s art and fashion, Phil Noto's warship shoes are definitely retro-looking.
