A rare shoe invention has sparked huge debate among Nigerians.
Creativity is said to involve breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way, but an unusual shoe invention has torn social media users apart.
The shoe style, in photos shared on Twitter by @LifeOfNapaul, was modeled after a human-feet.
The Twitter user expressed shock that such a shoe style exists.
Like normal footwear, it also came in different sizes, colours and shoe packaging.

Many tweeps frowned at the footwear they described as awkward and weird. Some thought it looked scary. There were those who hilariously said it was made for Celestian faithfuls, a group of Christians in Nigeria popular for walking barefooted.
