A friend of mine recently turned me on to the great street art blog Wooster Collective. Check out this unexpected street art in Richmond, Virginia: pairs of old shoes dangling in trees seem mundane by day, but by night, they’re like streetlamps from a Tim Burton cartoon. Solar panels inside the shoes supply the light. No idea who the creator is.

  1. Hot damn those are awesome.

    I just have the random shoes around my house, none of them seem to be housing for fairies. I am green with envy.

    fun! and delightfully alice in wonderland-esque. this makes me envision a future when kids’ sneakers start getting coated with little solar panels to get those light-up-when-they-stomp-ers to be “green.”

    Dang! That’s the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long while! I’ve often toyed considered moving to Richmond; glad to see there is no shortage of habitable solar-powered footwear.
