Nike shoe designer says we’ll see Back to the Future 2 style power laces next year

How convenient… according to Nike shoe designer Tinker Hatfield, we will see automatic power laces on Nike shoes in 2015, just in time to converge with the events of Back to the Future II. Whether or not this feature will be on an updated version of the Nike Air Mag, Nike’s real life version of Marty McFly’s shoe from BTTF 2 or just regular Nikes is yet to be seen. All we need now is for Black and Decker to get to work on a rehydrating machine.

For The Ladies: Sexy-Ass Comic Book High Heels

Okay, ladies, can we just tell ya’ll how good you look in heels. I mean, you look GOOD. While these Scott Pilgrim & Grimm Fairy Tales heels aren’t on the same level as other lingerie for your tootsies like Jimmy Choos or Louboutins, they’d definitely turn some heads and break some necks at a comic convention. 

At SXSW, Google introduces the annoying, talking smart sneaker

This isn’t a real product Google is producing, but it’s just a concept of the future of interconnected web-enabled fashion.

Using an accelerometer, a gyroscope, Bluetooth and some other off the shelf technologies, the Talking Shoe translates the wearer’s movements into funny, motivating and timely commentary. The things it says can be posted to Google+ by the user, sent to real-time ad units, if the user chooses to, and broadcast via onboard speakers. It can talk to the world and to the web. Every move the user makes generates data that’s captured using an accelerometer, gyroscope and pressure sensors. That data then gets pushed to a web app on your mobile phone and translated in real-time into funny and motivating commentary. That commentary then gets pushed to banners and social media, creating new, interesting content in the digital world from something happening live in the physical one.

Metallica shoes that play a clip of Lars Ulrich speaking with every step

I used to be quite a fan of Metallica. In the beforetime, before they fucked everything up, but even in the height of my Metallica fandom, I don’t think I would have run out to get a pair of Metallica sneakers that quote Lars Ulrich whenever you walk. Okay, maybe. It was high school and okay, yeah probably. But not now.

Adidas is officially shitcanning those horrible sneakers

Thank god. After way too much internet outrage, Adidas issued an official statement saying it was pulling the shoes with the orange shackles, saying that it was the work of one whimsical designer and they had absolutely no intentions whatsoever of relating the shoes to slavery.

Adidas accused of invoking slavery with its new shoes, but the fact is that they’re just fucking hideous

Adidas recently announced a new pair of mid-top sneakers, which wouldn’t be normally that big of a deal except that these shoes, the JS Roundhouse Mids come with plastic orange shackles on them, and that’s got people’s panties in a bunch, claiming that Adidas is promoting and honoring slavery. I doubt they were thinking slavery, but someone should still be fired for designing these shoes just because they’re ugly as hell.
