These Hand-Painted Sneakers Combine Marshmallows with Lincoln

While hand-painted sneakers offer a lot of creativity to the budding sneaker artist, these eccentric high tops take creativity to a whole new level. Painted by the talented Chantal from PonyChops, these high-top sneakers feature a pattern that combines two extremely unlikely subjects: Abraham Lincoln and marshmallow fluff. To top it all off, the shoes also feature some waggly, green tentacles, which snake around the sneakers' surface.

These shoes are almost a tongue-in-cheek take on pop culture. Abraham Lincoln is shown with huge googly eyes, looking like a cross between a zombie and a bobble head doll. The inclusion of marshmallow fluff draws attention to the strangeness of American products. This attitude is brought out by the bizarre depiction of Abraham Lincoln.

With these brilliantly crafted sneakers, Chantal and her PonyChops brand have proven that they'll be around for a long while, creating custom designs for creative minds all over the world.
