    Creative, but otherwise there's very little that I don't hate about those.

        Agree totally. Might as well make a speaker enclosure out of a ham sandwich.

            I have several pairs of vintage shoes that would yield a warmer, mellower sound :p

              But they'd probably have no 'sole', or a crooked tongue hanging out...
              Prolly would be good on some grunge-alternative. :rolleyes:

                They probably sound much better after being broken in. <OK I'll stop now>
                Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?

                        Here's my professional opinion as a veteran industrial designer (product designer)...

                        I feel that it's a case of creative energy having a horrific head-on collision with a complete lack of understanding of how to design an object such that it's useful or otherwise desirable.

                        Violently disparate objects colliding in a way that completely fails at its attempt to be whimsical and clever, or even functional, and rather comes off as merely sophomoric, ugly and pointless. "Aren't I whacky and clever?" No, actually. Well executed I guess, but conceptually lazy and doomed from the first napkin sketch to be tacky and hideous.

                        Another talking fish on the wall.

                        Successful design requires a lot more than creative energy and a goofy idea. It requires a real understanding of how an object interacts with and enhances our lives.

                        A harsh review, but I believe in good design. This ain't it.

                              Think they'd require toe-in?
