How would you like it if your worn out sneakers would grow back to their normal condition after being beat up a bit? Though it may sound like science-fiction, a London designer has apparently created a prototype that can do just that. Consider it an alternative to the likes of those sole protecting products and the like that are out there-the design is 3D printed from a synthetic biological material that repairs itself overnight. So will a big box sneaker brand pick up this creation of Shamees Aden and make retro releases obsolete? Give us your thoughts below after you check out the full piece at The Verge.

big name sneaker brands will never do this, because they have to make profit

U know why they make things cheaply these day? they dont WANT them to last. They want you to have to buy new ones every year

I'm sure I'll be good and gone by 2050.... hopefully they'll create an actual cryogenic tube before 2050
