Seed-spewing, biodegradable shoes?
In The Adventures of Johnny Bunko, our hero comes up with what he thinks is a revolutionary, category-busting new idea. Inspired by a passing bird, he decides that his company should make shoes with seeds embedded in them. As the shoe wears out, the seeds are distributed wherever the owner happens to walk. And when the shoes wear completely out, people can plant them.
Careful readers will remember that this idea becomes turns out to be a colossal flop. But now Johnny just might get the last laugh.
Springwise reports that this month OAT Shoes will be debuting a new line of biodegradable sneakers: “Bury them in the garden, woods or compost, water regularly and flowers will bloom from your old kicks!”
Yes, life imitates manga.
