A shoe shop like no other?  Designers Pinkeye upcycled an entire classroom to create a retail space for Shoe Supply in Antwerp, Belgium.  The brief was to come up with an attention grabbing concept that would have mass appeal but that could also be done on the cheap.  They salvaged items from a local boarded up school, utilising desks, maps, lockers, chemistry flasks and lamps to create an innovative retro-inspired trainer shop.
