David Coelho has created a new style of footwear called ShiftWear that take the form of a very unique pair of e-paper sneakers that can be customised using a smartphone companion application.
Using the ShiftWear app different images can be uploaded to the side covering of the sneakers to suit your style and fashion, or your taste on any specific day. Once uploaded the images can even be animated to provide an awesome and very unique finish to your footwear.
Coelho describes his creation as the most adaptable shoes you will ever own. Check out the video below to learn more and see the smartphone companion application in use and how it can customise your footwear at the press of a button. Their creator explains more :
How much do you spend each month to keep your sneakers looking fresh? With every new outfit, every color scheme, every change of venue, you’re back at the sneaker store to touch up your look with those perfect kicks. Chalk it up to the cost of looking good, as you put more money into the pockets of sneaker manufacturers who get to dictate what you wear next.
ShiftWear Classic’s are the badass sneakers that let you display custom designs, right from your phone or tablet in seconds. We know that shoes have to hold up to the elements. ShiftWear sneakers are waterproof, so you can machine-wash them. Their soles are coated with Kevlar Fibers, to resist the normal wear and tear of traditional sneakers. The flexible electronics in the shoes charge with every step you take – or wirelessly.
The ShiftWear e-paper sneakers are now available to back via the Indiegogo crowdfunding website with pledges starting from $150 with international shipping available.
