Shoes with actual springs in the heel!?

Posted by john a on 8/10/00 at 10:25 (025073)

Has anyone seen these things: http://www.zshoes.com/ . They certainly look strange, if not downright cartoonish, but also scream COOL. They're also looking for investors. John H, take note :-)

Wow, john a, that is quite a find. They're so attractive, I think I'll order 100 pairs. I think you'd have to do balance-bar training (say, for ten years) before trying them in the real world, though. (And I thought my aircast was weird . . .) --Nancy

Well, I have two thought about these shoes:
1. I must have had PF way too long because I actually looked at the shoes and thought to myself that they seemed to be a good idea.
2. What would my two teenagers think if I showed up at their school sporting these fashion statements???
