Sneakerboy, purveyors of luxurious feet leathers, are running a massive sale ridding themselves of all old stock right now. The servers seemed to crash pretty quickly and a lot of the picks we were interested in disappeared as those with faster mouse trigger fingers stacked their shopping cart and checked out quick-smart. There's still plenty of weird stuff left though, and here we present a ten of the craziest. The athletic sneaker and fashion sneaker worlds maintain a strange, sometimes strained relationship, there's crossovers but a lot of the time it feels like we don't really understand each other. We're coming around to some of the shoe shapes gradually though, and at the very least we respect the artistry at play. Here's ten wacky sneaks that are up for sale (or were) now on Sneakerboy for a baller's pittance.

We wanna hit Bayswater Roller City in these shiny suckers.
GIVENCHY FLORAL PRINT LEATHER TYSON HIGH TOP SNEAKER

Tisci put a kilt on this silhouette and it looked stupid, whodathunk that pink flowers could look better.

Ponyskin the upper may be, but that sole reminds us of donkey's teeth.

A pair of Insta Pump Furys for only 66 bucks is pretty wild!
Y3 QASA BBALL HIGH TOP

Definitely the craziest Qasa we've seen. Quite an achievement, given it only uses a few subdued hues.
RAF SIMONS SUPER TREKKER SNEAKER BOOT

A very pretty gumboot by another name?

Don't be caught tripping.
GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI LONDON PONY SKIN BLACK MID TOP SNEAKER

There's something about this one. I can't figure out if I like it. I ain't a Chuck Taylor kind of guy but all that gold is hypnotizing.

Fact: real ballers wear sandals, camo sandals.
