Paul Smith’s rug shoes

In addition to being a style pioneer, keen photographer and all-round gent, it would appear that Paul Smith is a keen recycler. He's quite literally pulled the rug form under our feet and crafted it into one of the more interesting shoes you'll see this winter.

Part of a seasonal range inspired by the psychedelic '70s and the effortless style of Jim Morrison, these low-slung lace ups aren't in fact made from repurposed tapestries, but a woven fabric adorned with a vintage-rug pattern.

Finished with chocolate suede piping and a smooth leather lining, blending in with your nan's carpet has never looked quite this good. They're available for £395 from Mr Porter.
