A Young Scientist Transforms a Nike KD Sneaker Into A “Smart Shoe” The Generates Power

nike kd smart shoe A Young Scientist Transforms a Nike KD Sneaker Into A Smart Shoe The Generates Power

The average human takes 7,000 steps a day, and each step generates an amount of force synonymous to body weight. A young scientist named Angelo Casimiro of the Philippines decided to transfer that energy into electricity by creating a custom sneaker that translates the everyday step into usable power. Using the Nike KDTrey5 silhouette (the shoes were exclusive to Asia), Casimiro created a “Smart Shoe” that collects energy and uses it to power a connected device. How could this be used in the real world? Angelo says you can charge your own phone while walking. He has entered his concept into Google’s 2014 Science Fair and although any sort of production is far away, it’s interesting to see young fans of KD shoes integrate some incredible science into the model. Check out the full video below for more information.

Nike LeBron 11 “Great Hall” by District Customs

Game of Thrones¬†currently¬†sits atop the um… throne of drama television right now (take this Nike LeBron 11 custom as proof of its reign since we’ve yet to see any Mad Men referencing pairs). And what better a silhouette to reference everyone’s favorite Sunday night tradition than the current King of the NBA in LeBron James’ latest wear in this Nike LeBron 11 “Great Hall” one-off by District Customs. Referencing the interior design of the luxurious hall that holds the Iron Throne, the sneaker sees marble accents aided by bronze, gold and burgundy referencing the current ruling power in Westeros. This pair keeps things rather understated too, and won’t leave those that turn their heads at it like Oberyn Martell. With looks like these, one has to wonder how much the asking price would be. Remember, a Lanister always pays their debts. More images after the click.

We’ve seen the Nike Air Penny line play a part in a couple of very important Nike All Star releases as of late, but we’ve yet to see them really look back into history at Penny’s actual All-Star appearances. Helping out with that is this Nike Air Max Penny 1 creation from Dank Customs, which sports the look of the classic jersey from the 1996 All-Star game. The choice of silhouette is an appropriate one – Penny had on a black pair during his performance that year. Browse the full set of photos for these custom Pennies below and then get in touch with Dank Customs for inquiries.
