We’re glad someone has finally found a good use for old skateboards. If you've grown out of your "skate or die" days, and you’re more interested in Repetto flats than Airwalks, then you might appreciate the genius of Kris Lovett. Lovett, a University of Arts grad, had the vision to recycle used skateboards into cute Faryl Robin-esque women’s shoes. He sees the project, called "Reply," as both an aesthetic adventure and a statement about eco-consciousness: “Used skateboard decks continue to pile up due to the production of over 100,000 decks per month in the United States alone. Reply explores this material waste stream as a resource for women's shoes.” No word yet on whether you can ollie in the skateboard shoes. But we're planning on wearing these wedges at left as soon as we can get someplace warm. --ALISON COOL
