Posted in Adidas by Tam Yue on May 21st, 2014

Adidas ZX Flux sneakersAdidas announced via their Instagram account that they will be rolling out a new app for iPhone and Android users called #zxflux in August 2014.  This app will allow you to print any photos taken with your phone onto a pair of Adidas ZX Flux sneakers. Imagine showing off your favorite photo on your shoes! This definitely takes social media to a new level.

That picture of the perfect sunset you took can be with you all the time, all you have to do is look down. Or maybe you took a great picture of your pet, or your spouse, or the burger you at for lunch yesterday……

Zipz Shoes let you zip your shoes on and off

Posted in Foot Apparel by Conner Flynn on February 10th, 2011

Zips shoes make more sense than regular shoes. They are the world’s first and only interchangeable shoe system! They have the ability to interchange shoe components any way you want. The line has an impressive collection of patterns and styles for both the covers and the souls and you can change it all up with ease. Have shoes your way.

Heck, you could turn one pair of shoes into as many as you like. Just zip on and zip off different tops and bottoms to create the shoe you want to wear. Designwise you have a much better selection than with typical shoes. You’ll have to email about pricing but you can check out their catalog to see the entire line-up. They look pretty fun.

Adidas unveils Han Solo SL-72 shoes

Posted in clothing by Shane McGlaun on July 8th, 2010

When it comes to clothing, I rarely choose gear that has characters on it. You won’t catch me rocking a t-shirt with Darth Vader for instance. I might rock these shoes with Han Solo bling though.

Adidas has unveiled a new pair of shoes for its Star Wars collection that is called the Han Solo SL-72. It appears that the tongue of the shoe has a shot of Solo encased in carbonite.

Back To The Future shoes with power laces

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on July 6th, 2010

One of the coolest clothing gadgets in Back To The Future Part 2 were the shoes with power laces. That movie was made in the 1980s and here we are in 2010. Where is it? Right here.

Almost. As it stands now, the motor is still a bit large and it isn’t quite as quick as the movie version, but hey at least someone out there made it happen.

Rambler shoes Tweet with each step

Posted in twitter by Conner Flynn on January 26th, 2010

Twitter has taken over the world. There’s no denying it. It’s everywhere. Built into everything. Your mother does it. Your grandmother just learned how to do it. And now, its in shoes, as long as your shoes are these Ramblers. These custom shoes tweet with every step you take.

Yes, it’s useless but that’s the whole idea. I guess it’s a commentary on Twitter, or how you should get out more or something. Whatever. Shoes that tweet are okay with us as long as people don’t go retweeting every step.

Kahtoola MICROspikes are tire chains for your shoesIf you find yourself slipping and sliding in the winter months, why not make like your car tires and get some chains on your sneakers? This is an absolutely brilliant idea. And they go nicely with the Tire tread iPhone case.

For $59, you can throw fashion out the window and make sure that your sneakers always have a firm grip in snow and ice. They feature “strategically placed stainless steel spikes connected to a dynamic flex-chain with a tough elastomer shoe harness”. And they don’t require any special buckles or straps.

Transformers Shoes for geeks with small feet

Transformers Shoes for geeks with small feet
Yeah I know. I thought I had seen everything that Transformers could transform to and from as well. As usual all I needed to do was wait and sure enough, the next weird thing comes along.

Transformer fans will love these. Are they really wearable? Well these are toys, but if your feet are small enough, you can step into the very sole of Optimus Toejam here and share in the foul smelling adventure to get the All-spark and save the world from the Decepti-clogs. They come in blue or yellow for $27 a pair.

Adidas Darth Vader shoes, mint on the card

Adidas Darth Vader shoes, mint on the card
What am I always saying? If you want a geek’s money, brand it Star Wars and put it in a bubble on a card. Geek money is now your money. The Adidas Superstar X Star Wars shoes come in black or white, black being much cooler since they are accented to look like Vader’s helmet.

They are a very limited edition and probably gone already. They did a great packaging job since this is gonna remind every geek of the action figure packaging. I’m sure many will buy these just to keep them in the package and take up more space in their mother’s house.

Wi-Fi Sneakers are A Step in the Right Direction

Posted in Foot Apparel by Conner Flynn on May 1st, 2008

Wi-Fi Sneakers are A Step in the Right Direction
These sneakers are fully functional hot spot finders. As you walk around town, an integrated display will let you know what the signal strength is on hot spots around you. The wearable Wi-Fi sneakers are named A Step in the Right Direction and were designed by mstrpln and Ubiq boutique.

The ASRD sneaker has an integrated wireless internet detection unit embedded under the flap of the left shoe. When the pressure sensitive insole is activated, the device scans the surrounding area for Wi-Fi signals and displays the result through LEDs so you can see it. Sure, geeks are going to love these, but aren’t there more convenient ways to find hot spots? Better yet, instead of trying to find hot spots with your shoes, maybe you should be trying to score with the ladies, Poindexter.

Pioneer headlight shoes rock LEDs & kinetic energy

Pioneer headlight shoes rock LEDs & kinetic energy
Here’s another thing that we were promised in the then “future”. Shoes with headlights. These funky looking Pioneer shoes are from designers Feijun Chen & Bin Zhao. Not only will they illuminate your path, but the batteries are charged by the kinetic energy of your steps. The LEDs are bright enough to light up an area about five feet in front of you, so you can make like a spirit and perpetually head toward said light.

There’s also a green tail light in back. Great idea for safety reasons alone. For one thing cars will see you clearly and thus avoid killing you, for another it might help you avoid obstacles in your path that might otherwise plant your face in the dirt.

iShoes 2.0: the Segway in shoe form

Posted in Apparel,Foot Apparel,R/C Toys by Conner Flynn on October 31st, 2007

iShoes 2.0: the Segway in shoe formWhen the iShoes first rolled out, they looked fairly clunky, with 4 large wheels. But in no time at all, they have had an upgrade. They lost a wheel and look a lot sleeker now. These “shoes” are powered by electric motors and controlled by a wired remote. They can also hit speeds of up to 15 mph. Presumably more with their new sleeker upgrade and they come in men’s and women’s sizes.

Right now it is in the prototype phase still, but they hope that they will go 5 to 7 miles without having to recharge the batteries. Can you say Skinned knees? How about broken limbs?
