Happy Halloween From Shoe Metro

We hope everyone has a very happy Halloween this weekend! May your Halloween festivities be filled with frights and sounds beyond your imagination. Everyone at the office had a ball with our Costume Contest, which included Lady Gaga, a cup of Starbucks coffee, and a blast from the past with the Teletubbies. Needless to say, we had a day full of laughter and shenanigans. Enjoy your haunts!

Weird Shoe Wednesdays: Kermit The Frog Adidas Shoes

Taking it back to Sesame Street, Adidas will be releasing a limited edition run of these Kermit The Frog-inspired Adidas shoes in classic shell-toe form, of course. The Kermit shoes are being released in late October/early November. They feature green suede uppers and a tongue mimicking Kermit’s iconic jagged collar. And just to keep it extra cool, “The Original In Hip-Hop” is printed in gold on the side, though you wonder if Kermit shares Adidas’ taste in music and culture as well.

Weird Shoe Wednesdays: Nike ‘Back To The Future’ Air MAG Shoes

I can’t believe I missed out on this but last month, Nike ran a special campaign based around the Nike 2011 Air MAG shoes, which are an identical replica of Marty McPhly’s shoes from the movie, Back To The Future II. These Nike shoes are actually rechargeable because of their glowing LED panels and electroluminescent logo. Unfortunately, Nike did NOT design these shoes with auto-lacing (clearly, they didn’t bother to check Instructables, hah). On the bright side of things, the net proceeds from the campaign went to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to fight Parkinson’s disease. And since Nike only produced 1,500 pairs worldwide and they only sold them on eBay, the proceeds were very hefty (apparently, the Air MAGs were going on eBay for more than $5,000 per pair!).
