Ever wanted to wear your holiday Instagram photos on your sneakers? How about that heavily filtered selfie? Soon you’ll be able to get any photo printed on your sneakers thanks to a new project from Adidas.

The Adidas Photo Print app, launching in August, will allow you to print any photo from your Instagram feed onto an Adidas ZX Flux trainer. The company posted a video to Instagram last week showcasing some ideas for custom kicks. Maps, food, cherry blossoms… everything you might find on an Instagram feed can be turned into a pair of sneakers.

This isn’t the first time that you’ve been able to use your Instagram photos to customise your sneakers. Nike PHOTOiD lets shoe shoppers import an Instagram photo to create a unique color palette for their sneakers. It’s not quite the same as printing it on the shoe itself, though. Thankfully, Adidas has taken things one step further.

“The possibilities are endless,” claims the video introducing the new app. Let’s hope so, because there’s gotta be something more interesting to put on your shoe than a photo of your own face.
