Hold the phone—it’s only a promotional campaign for O2 Recycle. The company’s   mission is to get consumers to sell back their old gadgets for recycling. The shoe phones were built from components of re-purposed Nokia and LG cell phones.

As part of a promotional campaign for O2 Recycle, a program which encourages people to sell back their old gadgets, O2 had artist Sean Miles grab some iconic footwear — a Christian Louboutin heel, a classic men’s brogue, a Nike Air trainer and a Hunter Welly — and components from old Nokia and LG cellphones collected through the O2 Recycle program.
