Romanian designer creates sneaker, slingback hybrid using vintage Nikes

LONDON -- Is it a sneaker, or a heel?

A popular sneaker brand has created a different look -- combining tennis shoes with heels.

Ancuta Sarca, a young Romanian fashion designer based in London is offering a different take on high style for fall -- putting together vintage sports shoes like Nikes with high heels and straps.

The shoes are a hybrid of a sneaker and half-slingback.

Sarca basically recycled old Nikes that had been in her closet for years -- crafting them with features like lace or straps -- attaching a heel.

The result is an interesting twist on old Nike shoe models, dating back to 1987, and a sleek new women's heel.
