You've seen homegrown Nikes before (salutes to the Patta crew), but never ones that get this literal with the nature connection.

These pieces from Christophe Guinet, aka Mr. Plant, recreate sneaker silhouettes using all natural materials. You might be wishing that some slightly more iconic models were used, but this is still an impressive set regardless of the merits of the Nike Mavrk series. See a handful his creations down below and let us know if you're pulling for an official Swoosh collab for the man, which would help eliminate any phobias about getting your shoes dirty.
