newspaper shoes

Oh wow. An environmentally friendly fashion company in Taiwan is making shoes and bags out of newspaper! Talk about corporate social responsibility. Not to mention, these eco-friendly goodies are hot items in the green niche markets of Taiwan, the US, and Europe! The shoes take 3-4 hours to make and sell for $100 - 150 while the bags can take up to 2-3 days and can go for up to $260. Worried about durability? The newspaper strips have cotton lining attached and plastic coating to make them waterproof!

Would you buy a pair? I think they're so cool.
