The setup feels a bit like a functional art piece. The pair of white porcelain sneaks hang from a mock power line that actually carries real power from the wall mount down through the laces; these guys are stuffed with halogen bulbs that emit a faint and somewhat-haunting glow.
And if the single pair doesn't provide enough light for a particular room, you can add and arrange more shoes as you see fit. Though you will have to kill someone nearby first.
Joe McGauley is a senior editor at Supercompressor. He recommends watching this 14 minute documentary on the whole act of shoe tossing. It's great.
