Well, it would appear that airline company Virgin America decided to one-up us on that offer – with a bit of help from some friends, of course (Eleven Inc. and SearchnDesign). Why not have a pair of shoes which not only charged your phone, but also provided WiFi, has mood lighting, and a video display!?
Say hello to the Virgin America First Class Shoe!
“Virgin America, Eleven Inc., and SearchnDesign in Milan, Italy have created the Virgin America First Class shoe. This is a one-of-a-kind item. In fact, this is the only pair available in the world. Inspired by Virgin America’s First Class amenities, these are the only shoes ever created with WiFi, moodlighting, First Class leather, a video display, and a built-in phone charger.”
– Eleven Inc. et al.
Oh, and only one pair were ever made, which are no longer available after someone on eBay purchased them for a total of $97,877.77. HOLY. SHIT! But don’t worry, all of the money will be donated to Soles4Souls, a non-profit charity committed to fight poverty by distributing shoes and clothing.
