I’ve heard the old expression “I’ll eat my hat” when betting on something improbable. But I’ve never heard anyone say, “I’ll eat my shoe.” But I’d definitely eat my shoe if it were actually a delicious cake.
We don’t all have Back to the Future sneakers yet, with self tying shoelaces, but Zubits may be the next best thing right now. This little doodads are magnetic shoe closures that easily snap together so that you don’t have to worry about your laces.
I’ve been waiting for this for about a year, and finally, Nike has announced the release of a sneaker that will combine Flyknit technology with a full Air Max cushioning. Now this will be one comfortable sneaker.
I was really impressed when I first saw the Nike Flyknit Trainer, with its completely woven upper that is virtually seamless. It looks like Nike is planning on taking the technology to a new level, by integrating it with even better soles.
If hadn’t received a Bluetooth speaker as a gift, I probably would have never discovered their convenience. There are more and more Bluetooth mobile speakers available these days, and they are costing less and less, making them a suitable purchase or gift for anyone with a smartphone.
Are you the kind of person that likes to share your tunes with people, no matter if they like them or hate them? Check out the Sneaker Speaker, which will allow you blast your beats wherever the go, without missing a step.
The Nike Sole was designed to fit on Össur’s Flex-Run prosthetic running blade, which is used by competitive amputee athletes. That being said, I wonder if future robots will be using this technology to outrun their human prey?
After spending a few months at the local gym, I have come to identify certain areas and avoid certain people because (there’s no other nicer to say it) they have stinky feet.
I learned this the hard way the first few times I happened to stop by the lounge or canteen where a lot of people who had just finished with their workouts were hanging out.
When I was in grade school, I used to rush home every day after school in order to catch my favorite cartoon called Star Blazers. I loved that show and still get the theme song stuck in my head on occasion.
The “modern high heels” phone is the perfect gadget for the..uh..person who collects novelty handsets. What? People have collected far weirder things. At least this one is useful.
It would have been a funny device if the shoe was actually the phone, instead of this weird bloated inner foot form thingy.
Love Dr. Who? Then have I got a shoe for you! A Dalek shoe, to be true. Yup, that’s a pair of handpainted Daleks gracing those black sneakers.
These shoes are no one-note craft, though. In addition to the Dalek painting on the front, you’ve also got “EXTERMINATE” written on the back.
“A Step in the Right Direction” is a sneaker that detects Wi-Fi while you walk, via a tricky network detection unit embedded under the left shoe flap.
The three LEDs on the flap (supposedly) show you how much Wi-Fi action is within 50 meters.
Looking for the perfect accessory to go with your Pac-Man hoodie and Pac-Man hat? How about a pair of rockin’ Pac-Man sneakers?
These awesome hand-painted Pac-Man shoes turned up recently in a Flickr photostream from someone going by the name thekalaka.
The word of the week around here seems to be “pimp.” First, we had the new TokyoFlash Pimp watches, then we had the Atari 2600 pimped -out Buick. Now we have this NES console which was apparently seen backstage after a Sneaker Pimps’ concert.
