Geeky Shoes. Cool or Not?




When we talk about shoes, How do we relate technology into the equation? Sounds like and odd understanding. When I was younger the only technical aspect I was aware of was the Reebok "Pump" basketball shoe. On the tongue of the shoe you would be able to press air into the surrounding shell of the shoe to give the player a better formed fit and to make you perform better or jump higher which was never scientifically proven. There is also the NIKE Air bubbles that became fashionable in the 90's too.

Fast forward to the future of today and shoes and technology is continuously evolving. In this Geeky Shoes (link) shows different running shoes with different technological uses. Some of the examples cited when you visit the link above range from an mp3 player with wireless sound system on the actual shoes. A pedometer that can also be fitted into a shoe. The combination of Nike and Ipod sport kit is a perfect example of this "Geek Style".

For any avid shoe collector, one pair of Air Force 1 Custom shoes is the "DIGG" glow in the dark version. If you are not familiar with the DIGG website. It is basically a ranking website that is popular for letting you know which websites are most popular by different categories. Only 6 pairs exist and are based on the same colours as the actual website of DIGG. The neat thing about these shoes is that they actually "Glow in the Dark" with a Digg pattern. Included in the links are also, NES video games,Tranformer shoes and shoes with GPS. Interesting technology I must say.

Good information.

I was reading through some articles and came across some interesting information on how frequently one must replace old shoes with a new pair. Though this is a matter of sheer judgement, it’s important to understand that every shoe has a lifetime and stretching it beyond that would only cause discomfort to your feet and affect your whole body.

One should exercise judgement to know if the padding of the shoe is anywhere close to causing discomfort while playing or exercising. If you feel that the air or the gel has gone or the sole of the shoe is worn out, it’s definitely time to buy yourself a new pair of shoes. So don’t wait till you find your foot sticking out of your shoes. Get a new pair and save your feet the trouble of injury or pain.
