Check Out This Robot's Funky Walking Style

All the sensors, servos and motors that allow humanoid robots like ATLAS to walk on two feet require a lot of battery power — so much so that they’re still impractical for real-world applications. But by more closely replicating a human’s gait — at least one with lots of swagger — Georgia Tech’s DURUS requires far less power.


BMW's Ugliest Concept Car Inspired Puma's Ugliest Sneakers

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.


Converse Has Modernised The Classic All Stars After 96 Years

Last year Converse redesigned its iconic Chuck Taylor sneakers for the first time in almost 100 years. The new version of the kicks went over so well that now Converse is updating its classic All Stars too with a modern take that replaces the canvas uppers with a lightweight and breathable knitted material.


These Sick Sneakers Are Made From Ocean Garbage

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.


The Absurd History Of Nike Air Technology

Like many soul-searching 1990s adolescents, I was obsessed with Nike Air technology. I’d pore over the latest innovations, from visible forefoot air to tuned air to other types of air. I’d even buy used joggers at the trash and treasure market and tear them apart to inspect the air. As my young brain developed and my understanding of biomechanics advanced, however, I came to a realisation: Nike Air is bullshit.


Michael J. Fox Tries On His Self-Lacing Nike Mags For Jimmy Kimmel

As a species, we may have overdone it with October 21’s rapture-like celebration. But no one can deny that the best moment of Back To The Future Day was when Nike delivered the first pair of self-lacing Mags (AS PROMISED) to one Michael J. Fox.


Who You Gonna Call? Ghostbusters (Sneakers)!

The recent anniversary and the upcoming remake of Ghostbusters has paved the way for an invasion of new merchandise tied to the film. A lot of it has been mostly forgettable, except for these sweet sneakers from Nookiee styled after the character’s iconic jumpsuit uniforms.


What It's Like To Wear The New Converse Chuck II

The new Chuck Taylors are here. The first new design in 98 years. I’m wearing them right now.


This Is How Nike Sneakers Inspired By Classic Album Covers Could Look

Sneakers are nice and all, but they tend to work on one design level: if they look nice, they kinda just… look nice. But what if they were inspired by classic album covers?


Converse Redesigned Its Iconic Chucks For The First Time In 98 Years

Some would consider it as sacrilegious as when Coke dabbled with its classic formula back in the ’80s, but after 98 years Converse has updated its iconic Chuck Taylor All-Stars. On the outside they look nearly identical, but on the inside the Chuck II is actually far more comfy for your feet.
