These shoes by Australian design studio Sibling allow the wearer to instantly erect a temporary shelter by unfurling a tent from round their ankles and pulling it over their head.
The Walking Shelter by Sibling untucks from net pockets around the back of a pair trainers.
Bright pink and purple waterproof sheets can be released from each shoe then attached together with Velcro.
The tent is then put over the head and worn like a hooded poncho, with arms stuck out through holes in the sides.
When sitting down, the body forms the supporting structure inside instead of poles or guy ropes, though feet and hands remain exposed.
Loops around the bottom edge can be used to peg the material to the ground to stop it flapping around.
A flap in the front with a mosquito net layer can be zipped up to protect the body from the elements and insects or left open to reveal who is inside and let them see out.
"The shelter accommodates for the body in a variety of ways and can be customised by the user to adapt to a variety of contexts and environments," said the designers.
After it stops raining, the shelter can be scrunched up back into the pockets and user can continue their walk.
