    Introducing the ADIDAS 1. The world's first running shoe controlled by a microchip.

    It has a motor-driven cable system! Yes, that's right. I said motor-driven cable system!.... in a shoe!

    Why is it, when it comes to footwear, people will buy anything? (ie: the pump, the disc, gellies...)

    Anyone try on a pair?

    I haven't but I'm really curious abuot them. Supposedly they are good because they adjust the fit for your feet. High arch, low arch, whatever, they reform themselves against your foot.

    Does it work? Dunno. Is it better than specialized orthotics? Doubtful.

    I had the light up ones too! [​IMG]

    I also had some 'Kangaroos' that have the pocket on the side, and even ventured into the 'Reebok Pump' area. I had a pair of earlier Grant Hill Filas that had a spring in the heel that didn't do anything except make the heel of the shoe too tall.

    Those look pretty cool. If they really work then good job Adidas.



    Awesome, I though I was the only one who remembered that. I once tried that with another brand of shoe and the "Z" came out an "N". Guess it's something Zips could only do...
