These sneaks are made for walking

As much as the next man, I have always been jealous of those cartoon characters whose legs turn into blurry, rotating wheels when they run fast, so this newish (c. 2008) invention might be the closest any of us get. The man behind the creation is wheel maker Max Knight, who created this bike for Intersection Magazine by replacing each tire with 8 sneakers (importantly with socks too) and then turning each “spoke” into a sturdy, leg-like bar. 

Sadly the dream has yet to be reached due to the less than high performance nature of the final prototype.  Aside from living this dream, 16 interchangeable sneakers displayed in all their singular beauty is enough of a compensation for any sneaker head I'm sure.
