Back in March Nike revealed plans to finally make Back To The Future-inspired power laces available in a commercial sneaker. Now Nike has confirmed a release date for the shoes – November 28th.
Thanks to Wired, we’ve also been given a bit of info as to how the shoes, dubbed HyperAdapt 1.0, will work. An internal cable system utilizing fishing wire and and a pressure sensor in the sole pulls the shoe tight around your foot. So, the laces themselves aren’t what’s keeping the shoe snug on your soft, squishy feet. Check out the video below for more info on how the shoes actually work. [click to continue…]

There’s a new Godzilla movie coming to Japan, and so Reebok and MegaHouse have unveiled a couple of sneakers based on the iconic movie monster. The two new designs are the Reebok CLASSIC × MegaHouse Instapump Fury Road Ver.GODZILLA and the Reebok CLASSIC × MegaHouse Instapump Fury Road Ver.ShinGodzilla, and they featured a number of nifty little touches and nods to the 63-year-old franchise.
The Ver.GODZILLA version takes its design cues from the original movie monster, with a sleek black texture reminiscent of ol’ ‘Zilly himself, while the Ver.ShinGodzilla pulls from the upcoming movie and features glow-in-the-dark soles. Nice! Check out more product photos below. [click to continue…]
I personally demand you sing the Firefly theme song as you walk around in these Firefly Serenity Ship oversized plush slippers.
Or just quote dialogue from the show…or movie. They’re the smoothest ride to Boros for anyone can pay.
These are so weirdly awesome—not to mention a better option than cutting footholes in the Firefly Serenity Plush.

These Warcraft Durotan plush slippers may be my new favorite WoW gear to date.
They come complete with spikes, fur, and the Frostwolf symbol on the side. Plus, if you’re a klutz like me, you’ll be thrilled to hear there are no-slip dots on the bottom.
They’re one size fit most, but even if your feet are a little small, just wrap some leather around it and upgrade your gear. [click to continue…]
