Tiny kicks: Candles and soap for sneakerheads

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.

As the model will serve for casting the silicone mold, there is some rules and limitations when it is created.

Your team of enthusiasts. #WHATTHESHAPE
