Getting impatient for Adidas' 2014 lineup? Maybe you want to talk to Chris Anderson about doing some work for you, then: the UK-based artist has been commissioned by retailer Chimp to make cardboard versions of a number of next year's shoes. It'd be difficult to mistake them for the real thing — they're all cardboard-colored, for one thing — but they feature a shocking level of detail, especially considering they're made out of the same material as the box that the real shoes are shipped in. Just make sure you don't step in a puddle wearing these (then again, true sneaker fanatics don't want to get their actual Adidas dirty, either).
