I can’t imagine a tech company getting traction with this unless it was a removable element that you could put it into any shoe.
Nike, though, if they could produce the tech at a scalable economy, could theoretically put something in all their shoes. But then they’d have to be activity specific shoes, because who wears the same shoes all the time?
Guess it could just be aimed at runners. I can’t imagine it working for general purpose.
Believe it or not, I still have a pair of (well-worn) Adidas 1’s, circa mid-00’s
These babies have real-time adjustable heel pressure absorption, managed independently by small computers in each shoe, to adjust how soft or hard your foot hits when running.
I used to wear them for fun when travelling and oh what fun I had at security… “Sir, you do realise there is a battery and an electronic circuit installed in both of your shoes?” Well popular with the growing queue behind me.
I’m sure modern day shoes are way smarter and I don’t deserve to wear them!
