2010: Year of the furry shoe

Posted By on Tue, Feb 9, 2010 at 8:42 AM

2010 marks the year of the tiger (of the animal, not Woods, variety) according to the Chinese zodiac. And what better way to celebrate the big cat's iconic power than by sporting tiger-inspired shoes.

Nike has designed a limited-edition set of kicks with nylon fur, some golden-hued stripes and red detailing.

Anything more would be far too gaudy, naturally.

If I didn't love shoes by principle, the Nike Year of the Tiger Classic Cortez might be the most heinous pair I've ever seen, but I gotta love something with the so-bad-it's-good appeal.

Here they dont look as bad.
