Nike+ is receiving a major update this year, which includes pressure sensors and an accelerometer. The sensors will be mounted inside dedicated basketball and training shoes. Of course, you’ll be able to track your progress directly on your iPhone.
If you are going to buy your young child these awesome lightsaber sneakers by Stride Rite, I only ask that you shield them from the prequels and treat the original trilogy as sacred. These sneakers feature real light-up lightsabers on each one.
Kivadeno, an Etsy user, has created some awesome Super Mario Bros. Custom Vans. I know what you’re all thinking… you probably think that your nondescript white van with no windows serves you well enough in driving around for your window cleaning business, and that a Super Mario Bros.
Remember how a little while back, Nike finally released its Back to the Future-inspired Nike MAG sneakers. Sure, it was for a good cause, but you’re probably not wearing a pair unless you had had a few thousand dollars to spare.
We were pretty excited when we heard about Nike’s new Back to the Future inspired MAG shoes. I just wish that they had power laces and that I could afford a pair. If that sounds like you as well, don’t despair.
It seems appropriate that the week that I got myself a pair of adidas adiZero Feathers, a stormtrooper helmet made completely out of adidas sneakers turns up. This helmet was created by the blogger Freehand Profit of The Hip Hop Nerd to promote StarWarsRemix.com.
Well, I was pretty excited earlier when I read all about the new Nike Air MAGs, the Marty McFly sneakers from Back to the Future II, but now that Nike has revealed the full details about the Air MAGs, I’m sad to report that they won’t feature functional power-laces.
How much would you pay for a pair of Nike Air Mags, aka the Marty McFly shoes in Back to the Future II? I don’t know, but since Nike also patented power laces (laces that will tighten themselves), I’m expecting something big in the coming weeks on the sneaker front.
Remember the All Star Super Mario Bros. Nintendo Chuck Taylors that we were all drooling over? I’m sure you also remember how the only problem with those Chucks are that they won’t be released outside of Japan.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Super Mario, Nintendo is teaming up with Converse to release some snazzy-looking limited-edition high- top sneakers that look mighty fine and totally drool-worthy. Especially for the ultimate Super Mario Bros.
One thing that I had always wanted when I was still a kid was a trampoline, right in my own room. Sad to say, my parents didn’t get me one. They were always the overprotective kind and reasoned that I would probably fracture my skull or break a leg if I had one.
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.
I’ve seen some wacky speakers over the years – even a pair that looked like high heels. We even had a Nintendo NES crammed into a shoe. But I can officially tell you that this is the first time we’ve featured a pair of speakers built into sneakers here on Technabob.
Adidas has really been kicking out some really awesome shoes from the Star Wars universe lately. For instance, these new sneaks are perfect for fans for the imposing bounty hunter, Boba Fett.
Each pair of ZX 800 Boba Fett runners is detailed with battle-scarred distressed leather, and comes in an a totally cool toy-like blister pack.
I love these new adidas shoes inspired by the slimy slug-like body of Jabba the Hutt.
Each pair of adidas Originals Jabba the Hutt Attitude Hi-tops features a shiny, lumpy green finish, complete with green laces, and scaly details on the side of the soles.
