ShiftWear is putting app-controlled screens on shoes, and they look amazing

ShiftWear is a new company that is looking to put app-controlled screens on shoes, and no matter how crazy it may sound they are totally awesome. Shoes are something that some people take very seriously, with various pairs to match each outfit they own, and some that can only be worn at certain times. The folks at ShiftWear want to make changing up your style a little easier, and to do that they are putting screens that can be controlled by a smartphone app in the shoe.

That's right, you'll be able to control the design of your shoes from your phone, changing it on the go if you so desire. From simple black and white patterns to complex drawings or paintings, you can design the sneaker of your liking from your phone. The company is raising money right now through Indiegogo, and you can help them make this a reality for a pledge of as little as $1. If you are interested in a pair of these for yourself, you'll need to fork over $150 to get them on your feet.

  • GTFO.... Ima rock these shits with no shame.
  • Coming soon, banner & pop up ads on you're shoes!
  • Lol
  • How long until I punch somebody in the nose for having porn on his shoes around my kids? I hope there's some kind of approval process for the content before it can be pushed onto your shoes... (And this is different than wearing some class-less T-Shirt because it moves)
  • I hope there isn't an approval process so people can make some cool designs and not worry about their design getting denied for whatever reason. People can put porn on all sorts of electronic mobile devices already, I am sure current obscenity laws can protect "children" from seeing stuff they might already see from weirdos who lack class and would put porn on their tablets and watch them in public.
  • inb4 rappers start making music videos with images of gold and diamonds on the screen.
  • I'm willing to bet that these never ship or if they do they are nothing like the promo video. There are no waterproof flexable low energy visible in sunlight color screens in existence (especially when you consider the kind of beating a shoe takes). This is almost certainly vapor wear.
  • Very tempted to push the button, but I've sponsored some fab projects that never delivered or were delayed forever (Kickstarter and Indiegogo) and as I was considering it ( and all of the variations they are proposing, delivering 1 design would be difficult without a lot of money) I heard the sound of the toilet flushing more of my hard-earned money away. Will just have to wait and see.
  • The most telling thing in the video....nobody actually wears them.

  • Most likely a scam
    Why is Mobile Nations promoting this Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • What do you mean why are they promoting this? They were probably paid to do a promo spot. And if that isn't the case then it is because this is a kickass idea. Don't hate..... I don't even like the show design but the idea is great. Sent from the iMore App
