These boots were made for talkin': O2 teams up with artist for 'walkie talkie' footwear

These boots were made for talkin': O2 teams up with artist for 'walkie talkie' footwear Sorry, Ms. Sinatra, but the headline parody was all too obvious to ignore. As part of its mobile device Recycle program, which allows users to trade in old handsets for cash, British telco O2 has commissioned local designer Sean Miles to give discarded featurephones a new lease on life. The end result? Four footwear designs - made from the likes of Christian Louboutins, Nike Airs, Hunter Wellingtons and a classic Brogue men's shoe -- replete with a fully functional phone embedded in the sole. We know exactly what you're thinking: Why would anyone want to hold a shoe to their face? Whether it's for the love of the arts, a penchant for public ridicule or a closer whiff of the ground below, we can't say for sure. What we do know is that this truly "mobile" kit(sch) will be up for auction later in March at a planned exhibition. But that won't be the last you'll see of Miles' unholy meshing of tech and apparel -- the artist also plans to branch out into gloves and handbags as part of the fuller O2 Recycle Collection. You paying attention, Weird Al? This one's for you! Rita Ora Shines Her Light in New Photo Shoot Rita Ora Blonde bombshell Rita Ora basks in the spotlight in a new photo shoot for the London Evening Standard. The Roc Nation siren strikes a pose under an ultraviolet light in a Givenchy dress, ukchristianlouboutinoutlet2013 Roberto Cavalli suit jacket, and Christian Louboutin spiked heels in the white-hot images. In response to all the rumors surrounding her life, Rita says, “Sharing my life with people is just part of my daily routine. But I don’t take any notice of the things people say—it’s just white noise. I know the truth. I don’t feel I need to explain anything. Silence is the most powerful response. I know it’s contradictory to put yourself out there and then not want to deal with the responses, but that’s just how it is.’” The “R.I.P.” singer, 2013 Christian Louboutin Outlet Store-2013 New Style Christian Louboutin Shoes Hot Sale who is nominated for three awards at the BRIT Awards, is currently on her “Radioactive” U.K. tour with Iggy Azalea and recently shot a video in Thailand for her new single “Torn Apart” featuring Snoop Lion.
