I was driving to work yesterday and saw a gaggle of people standing on a corner waiting for the cross sign. They were wearing the strangest shoes.
The shoes seemed to be the same plastic boots used for, say, Rollerblades, but instead of wheels, they had these two opposing leaf-springs on their feet. I am quite sure the purpose of these shoes is to allow the wearer to run faster and jump higher, but the people were just standing there, so I didn’t get a demonstration.
I have made a life-like recreation of these shoes.
Can anyone tell me what these are called, where I can get a pair, and are they difficult to use? are they as fun as they looked?
