I thought of a post we made earlier this year about Claire, who dreams up new designs (literally), when I saw John Fluevog's Open Source Footwear - that is, a place for design hopefuls to send their ideas for shoes.
All that you need is that brilliant idea. Even just for part of a shoe - scribble it down and send it to us. We don't care if it's on a bar napkin, as long as we can make it out. So, fax it, mail it, email it, bring it in, just get it to us!See here for some submissions that have been chosen to be made into real shoes.[via]
