Pad Learns About Your feet

Well we have LLBean that will take a outline of your foot to make sure the shoe fits. Now Yves Behar designed a shoe or pad that you wear around the house or walk down the street and it collects the data, thenyou take the chip out dowload the data and create your own very own shoes. A new pair of shoes in another color, form or material and ergonomically customized using your data gathered while on your walk. This is still in production but look to Nike or a large shoe company to buy this up. Imagine that in a couple of years that you go to a shoe store wear a pair of slippers around the store, they have a device that you can download the information too, from there it is uploaded to Nikes development center, you build your shoe and within a week,personalizedd shoes.
