Now that’s a pair of BFF shoes that stays, and looks great together. The Han and Chewie themed heels are available on Etsy for $200.
We love the idea and thought that went into creating these e-Ink shoes. The Volvorii Timeless shoes show quite an interesting idea and design. The exterior of the shoes is an e-ink display that works with a Bluetooth module to connect with your smartphone, and to allow customization of the design/patterns on the body.
It’s about time the prophecy of Back to the Future came true. Well, it’s 2015, and the hoverboard seems far away, but thankfully, we do have those sweet auto-lace shoes from Nike. As much as Nike’s idea does look like that in the movie, it’s more desirable to do that auto-lacing thing better. That’s exactly what the Powerlace sneakers intend to do. It looks like a regular shoe, and has a solid auto-lace mechanism that does not depend on motors, batteries, and springs.
These bird inspired shoes take up the mantle of going from a tad strange to a whole new level of weird. The range starts with shoes that have slightly weird shape and bird claw-like heels. Then the range progresses into shoes that look increasingly like a bird, until you run into a shoe where you would feel like you’re shoving your foot into a taxidermied bird.
Giant robot slippers on the feet, sound effects to go along. I think I would feel obligated to walk like a robot wearing those. Which is totally my style. Costs $30.
Crocs have such a negative connotation, let’s make it all better by adding claws for toenails. That way, we have Clawz, which are definitely not crocs because they got big toenails and they are spelled different. So now that this marketing hurdle has been solved with such ingenuity, what do we do next?
Adidas is soon going to release the limited edition Samba Primeknit boot. The new shoe is claimed to have all the strength and stability you would expect from a football boot, but will weigh less and use fewer materials. The shoe has been produced from yarn, and according to Adidas is the company’s most environmentally sustainable boot till date.
According to Back to the Future 2, 2015 is just the right time for Marty McFly’s self lacing shoes. Nike did launch lookalike Nike MAGs in 2011, but they did not include the power lace. Now they say the technology is finally available, and could very well be put into production in 2015. Hopefully, we’ll have the hoverboards as well.
Wonderful Pixar themed Nike shoe designs by Rachael Loraine. As wisdom says, all good things in life are illegal, married, or just concepts. These belong to the last category.
