SIBLING, a collective based in Melbourne, Sydney and Amsterdam, has designed a human shelter stored within a pair of sneakers. The ‘Walking Shelter’ is a mobile habitat that unfolds from net pockets on the outside of the shoes and surrounds the wearer’s body to form an enclosure that relies on the human frame for support.

The purple and blue shelter is stored compactly in the integrated pockets and then expands outwards when removed. It accommodates the body in a variety of ways and can be customized by the user to adapt to a variety of contexts and environments.

The odd-looking human-supported tent was created for the women’s online fashion retailer Gorman in Australia. Click through to see images of the ‘Walking Shelter’:
