While everyone is busy reselling the highly anticipated McDonald's BTS meal packaging, Josiah Chua has taken the violet wrapping to the next level

Just look at these creative kicks:

The Singaporean artist shares with SAYS that he used six BTS meals and spent four to five hours to upcycle a pair of Nike Air Max Plus that were leftover from a previous project

He uploaded footage and photos to social media and in under 24 hours, they've already gone viral.

The sneakers even have their own 'holster' for the nuggets to sit in, so you can munch on the go

Using tape, glue, laces, and scissors, he meticulously cut and shaped the McNugget box and cup to attach to the shoes. Even the special Cajun and Sweet Chilli sauces are connected with the laces as part of the design.

He explains that it was just a fun, spontaneous project and has no intention of selling them... for now at least

"You can wear it, you can walk CAREFULLY in it but no, you can't move any faster or wear it out on a normal day haha," he tells SAYS.

Watch a snippet of him putting them together:
