Intelligent shoes

Verb for Shoe was created by VectraSense - company affiliated with MIT. This shoe is capable to adjust itself to the type of movement of the owner (running or walking), remember the owner's preferences and even communicate with other such shoes! The shoe can connect to the Internet and inform it's manufacturer that it broke and needs replacement. All in all, it's quite a gizmo, this shoe! More info here:

    another great example.

    do you remember the Adidas shoe that came out about a year ago, and it could detect the surface it was walking on and change its sole grip, etc.? well again, kinda like the LG fridge, the IOT component was kind of missing. but these shoes would be very IOT -especially if they contacted the manufacturer with info, or the store when they needed to be replaced.
