Custom kicks from Adidas will soon be printed with Instagram snaps. Adidas

Usually getting your lunch on your shoes means you've had a mishap with the ketchup. But pictures from photo-sharing site Instagram, used by millions to photograph their food, will soon appear on shoes as Adidas reveals a new app to customise your kicks.

It doesn't have to be a photo of the wicked juicy burger you're about to scoff, of course: the new app can see you personalise a pair of Adidas ZX Flux training shoes with a print of any of your Instagram snaps on the upper. The app for selfie sneakers is coming to the iPhone and Android devices in August.

Adidas revealed the new app with a video on the adidasoriginals Instagram account.
