Sneaker Speakers Go Super-Size
May 20th, 2011
I can honestly say that when I first reported about a pair of sneakers with speakers built into them, I was pretty sure it would be the first and the last time I’d have a post with “Sneaker Speakers” in the title. Well color me wrong. The guys over at Sneaker Freaker magazine have turned me onto the most insane pair of sneaker speakers to date.
Like the earlier model, these were created by sneaker artist Nashmoney, but this time in collabo with hip-hop artist MF Doom, the Sneaker Speakers Doomsday Edition not only have actual sneakers as part of them, they’re gigantic. I’m talking Yao Ming size feet. PUMA ponied up the world’s largest pair of Suedes in order to form the foundation for these crazy things. These massive speaker shoes are loaded with LED disco lights, and the base station offers lighting controls, inputs, and an LCD screen that claims to have “barometric pressure readouts,” which I don’t quite get. But heck, we’re talking about shoes with speakers in them, so none of it makes all that much sense.
You can see a bit more of the speakers in action, along with a brief interview with Nash Money in the video clip below:
