Now these are some creative treads. In Maskull Lasserre’s project “Outliers (Trace)” which we first spotted over at Laughing Squid, the mixed media artist has created a series of shoes that create realistic animal footprints when walked in — the artist has left tracks through Montreal, Ottawa, Boston, New York since 2011, turning the ground (in addition to the skillfully wrought shoes) into a work of art. We don’t know about you, but we’ll definitely think twice the next time we see an errant paw print in the snow in New York. Also, we definitely want a pair — bear paws, please. Click through to see a few photos of the shoes in action, and then head over to Lasserre’s website to see even more of his work.
