These Faux Shoe Umbrella Stands Will Deceive Any Shoe Wearer

Umbrella stands all have similar functionalities, but it's the designs of these constructs that separate them from one another, because otherwise people would just have the same umbrella stand -- and no one wants that.

This peculiar umbrella stand design features a pair of sneakers as the umbrellas' place holder. The 'Sneaker Umbrella Stand' from the Japanese company Rakuten is so detailed you can fool people in your house into thinking the umbrella stand were real shoes.

There are many pranks you could pull off with the Sneaker Umbrella Stand. A person could use it to trick the people in their homes by replacing the victim’s white sneakers with these faux sneakers or offer it as gag gift to gullible younger siblings.
