In the battle against COVID-19, the most effect weapon in our arsenal is staying put inside our homes. The purpose of social distancing is to slow the relentless spread of the virus, and the more we band together and keep indoors, the quicker we can actually go out and start rocking our favorite footwear. There are, of course, other ways to enjoy sneakers outside of wearing them. Creatives have come out in droves to display their personal projects on social media, such as this “JUST STAY HOME” by @krxone that transforms classic Nikes such as the Air Force 1, Mowabb, Air Max 95 Neon, and Air Trainer 1 into clogs and mules. Displayed via a clean on-foot shot with indoor-appropriate socks and sweats, these concepts simply remove some overlays to fully expose some areas of the upper for the full house slipper effect.
