Nike trainers redesigned with classic album artwork

In 1996, record label EMI commissioned photographer Storm Thorgerson and his studio Hipgnosis for a promotional project to mark the re-release of the Pink Floyd back catalogue. The resulting shot, which saw a line of nude models sit pool side, each adorned with the artwork of a Floyd album across their back, sold in its thousands, adorning university dorms and living rooms the world over. 

But we've found a set of reworked album covers we'd much rather have hanging in our hallway.

The creation of Copenhagen-based designer Patso Dimitrov, he's reworked a collection Nike basketball shoes to feature the album artwork of four famed records - including Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon sprawled across the side of a KD8.

The series includes Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures, Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction, A Tribe Called Quest's Low End Theory and Daft Punk's Alive.

And no, of course they're not for wearing - the're not even for sale. This is just a superb piece of product design, bound to set you lusting for a real life version.
