‘Walking shelter’ is a mobile habitat that pops out of a pair of sneakers. Conceived by design collective Sibling, the sneakers accommodate a fully-functioning tent, stored compactly in integrated, netted pockets within the sides of the shoe. The shelter expands out from the back of the footwear and fits around the human body, forming a billowing capsule that encloses the user in tented material. The adapted habitat relies on the human frame as a supporting structure, an alternative to nomadic or urban living.
