This charming line of sneaker-shaped candles and soap by Russian company What the Shape was surely created for “the sneakerhead who has everything.”

Each one measures a little over 5 inches long and costs $15.

The project WHAT THE SHAPE is, above all, our passion for sculpting. The photo shows the way of creating of a small sneakers. The desire to replicate the original, pay attention to details, search for artistic and technical solutions – all this is a fascinating process of creating the master model. As the model will serve for casting the silicone mold, there is some rules and limitations when it is created. Consideration of all the nuances without losing the similarity with the original, is making the work doubly interesting. If you buy, for example, candles WHAT THE SHAPE, you will get not only paraffin sneakers but also a piece of our soul and painstaking handmade work. Thank you for your interest to our project! Your team of enthusiasts. #WHATTHESHAPE
