Hiking from Mexico through the United States and all the way up to Canada on the Pacific Coast Trail is just a little bit beyond a stroll in the park. It took Andrew Holzscuh, the hiker in the video, 166 days to take on over 4,184km. He got it done with only four pairs of shoes. This time lapse doesn't show the actual trail, just shots of his shoes everyday. It's neat to see all the different terrain on the trail.

Featuring sneakers in movies is a fun way to blend fiction and reality and adds another layer of geekery to any film (what are those?). But the best movie sneakers either give them a personality of their own, like the Nike Mags in Back to the Future or the Reebok Alien Stompers in Aliens. Or they're just damn cool like the Space Jam Jordan XIs in Space Jam.

If you win at the 2016 Olympics, not only do you get yourself a gold, silver or bronze medal — you also get a pretty nifty pair of shoes to take home with you as well. Adidas has an ultra-exclusive "winner's shoe" for the Olympic elite, 3D printed and with colour-coded laces to suit gold, silver and bronze.

Way back in 2008 BMW revealed an especially outlandish concept car called the GINA Light Visionary Model that traded metal body panels for a flexible lycra-like fabric wrapped around the vehicle. It wasn't exactly pretty, which makes it harder to understand why Puma would use it as inspiration for a new shoe.

Companies like New Balance have been using recycled plastic from water bottles to make shoes for years now. But Adidas is taking that idea one step further. Teaming up with Parley for the Oceans, its new Adidas x Parley sneakers are also made from plastics recovered from the ocean.

Ever since Back to the Future II, people have wanted shoes with power laces. Well, it's happened. Nike has finally put power lacing in real shoes. In real life. As in, you'll actually be able to buy them. And you'll never have to tie a shoelace again. The Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 will be the first real Nike shoe to implement the adaptive lacing tech and it's supposed to work just like it did for Marty McFly. Put them on and it magically tightens up around your feet.
