Bulgarian artist Simeon Georgiev, infamously known for his LEGO Streetwear Figure Project and his re-imagination of Disney's Huey, Dewey and Louis wearing hip brands, unveiled his stylish robotic sneakers.

The vision renders on the desires of futuristic, intelligent humanoid robots, who inevitably would love to rock stylish sneakers like their human owners would. Georgiev took Nike's Roshe Run silhouettes and Air Max 1s and adapted them for the future, and their robot sneaker owners. The designs expand on the iconic sportswear's sneaker features, embodying the traditional details and updating them with a blocky, rigid, futuristic feel. The lacing systems resemble a more advanced design of Marty McFly's Power Laces, complementing the futuristic, robotic owners of the sneakers.

The seamless integration between the sneaker soles and the robot's legs and joints, results in a timeless interpretation of Nike's renowned silhouettes for the future of sneaker owners.
