Tommy Mallet is one of the few TOWIE stars that has an incredibly successful business(Gemma Collins, Danielle Armstrong and Sam Faiers and Billie Shepherd are the others) however his latest design is err, interesting.

As well as filming for the ITVBe show the reality star is also the founder and creative director of the footwear brand Mallet.

Showcasing his latest creation he shared a photo of himself looking directly through the trainer and captioned the snap, "Transparent".

You know, because the shoe is transpar- anyway, his latest design definitely divided fans as one person smartly questioned, "I like the idea but wouldn’t they just steam up your feet are always warm?"

Another wrote, "Better make sure you have cool socks to go with those bad boys 😊👊🏼".

One more joked, "Mallet socks inbound 😂👍".

If you're looking for trainers that have a bit of glitz on them then you're going to want to buy a pair of these. They're black with a white sole (so they go with everything) and are covered in crystals.

Tommy has previously opened up, saying the rive to create his trainer business came from being bullied when he was 12 because his family couldn't afford to him expensive clothes and trainers.

"I’m not going to lie, it didn’t make me feel good at all," he told the Daily Mail.

"But at the end of the day everyone goes through hard times. Not being able to afford them made me want to push forward and prove to not only them, but also to myself, that I could get to where I wanted to be, and be even more than that!"

He went on to say, "I feel like at one point in my life I definitely could have had the potential to go down the wrong path but ultimately, I knew that I wanted to do things the right way and to succeed. So staying on the right track was important to me."
