Well, I have to tell you, every time we show it to people they love it. And you have to admit, it is rare and unusual (which is why I posted it)....esp considering it was built by the Mythbusters team for Nike/UGO...

Jamie Hyneman from Mythbusters fame also built a Nike shoe based on an RC motorcycle.

I found a non-english version of the video, although with some more patience, you can find the english version.

Hey, I didn't build it...It was one of 10 givaways by Nike in the UGO sweepstakes at the 2003 superbow. It was build by the Mythbusters guys. It works and a lot of effort went into the moulding of the sneaker,. There are only 10 in the world...That makes it unusual and rare....and it has a great story behind it..
