Shoes Have Headlights, Rubber, Lots Of White

Well in the pictures after the jump they look all white. Admittedly, in that picture they look gray on top. But I digress. They have headlights in the toes.

Pioneer is a concept shoe that coverts kinetic walking energy into electrical energy. There's a tiny battery that charges up with each step and can keep the headlights on for a full 12 hours straight dispersing light at 1.5 meters.

Wow, they've had these for years. My niece even has a pair. Every time she takes a step Dora the Explorer and little pink butterflies light up on the sides. I went for a pair, but alas, no 11's. Personally I have no interest in this model. Perhaps if you're a night runner looking for a little extra safety these would come in handy (read: footy). But I've been running (from the authorities) in the dark for years without any problems. Except for the times I've hidden under overturned kiddy-pools. They always check under those.

NOTE: If you foresee yourself being chased by a ninja in the future do not buy these, you'll be totally f***ed.

Several more pictures after the jump.
