The culture of unlaced white sneakers popped up ever since the launching of the track “My Adidas” by Run-D.M.C in the year of 1986.

Sneakers will forever remain the most popular attire in many closets for which, there are wonderfully designed sneakers available in the market including scannable digital smart tags and self-lacing sneakers by Nike, just like the one you saw in Back to the Future movie.
In order to toughen up the competition and survive in the market, a New York startup “ShiftWear” has manufactured a pair of really sophisticated and high-tech sneakers comprising of HD display where you will be able to exhibit your personalized designs and animations. ShiftWear personalized digital display sneakers that can deeply amaze your friends.
This pair of sneakers will be paired with your smartphone with the help of an application (iOS, Android or Windows) through which you can decide your smartphone’s outlook (don’t worry about wires since it will be entirely wireless). You can either choose a still image or animations filled with vibrant colors or simply black and white which will be shown on the sides of your sneakers.
Furthermore, you can change the design anytime you want to even after leaving your house. The chosen animation will instantly appear itself on the curved screen around the sides of your sneakers. This personalized shoe canvas also enables you to sell your unique designs as well as buy animations/designs from other users of ShiftWear. The company wants to form a virtual community that lets users share and tag their own customized digital displayed sneakers.
If you are worried about dirt and mud that may inhibit you visiting certain places, fear not as it can sustain approximately 16.4 feet level of water and can be washed in washing machines. For greater longevity, the shoe soles are made of KEVLAR, that’s right, bulletproof!
These sneakers are available in five distinct colors and of low, medium and high covers. The batteries required for displaying animations can last for 30 days and you can charge them simply by walking.

However, if you choose not to display any animation, it will not consume any extra juice off those batteries.
The price of this amazing pair of sneakers is yet to be revealed, however, this campaign has already managed to raise $133,210 till now which is tremendously exciting for ShiftWear.
