When will Simpsonmania end? Every other commercial, Fox promo, and site has at least one ka-ching for Matt Groening and crew. We are pleased that in between the Squishees and Krusty battling the BK mascot, we found these anti-Simpson shoes. The Limited Edition Krusty the Demon Vans seem to be so popular that they are only available on eBay, from prices of $127.00 to upwards of $350.00. We did find one pair of Homer in Shattered Glass shoes by the same designer Tony Muñoz for $22.50, unless someone has already snatched them up to resell on eBay for a higher price, too.

GPS Shoes

GPS takes a new turn with these shoes invented by Sayo Isaac Daniel. Referred to as Quantum Satellite Technology, Daniel explains that you can forget your watch or cell phone, but not your shoes. He first got involved with the idea when his own 8 year-old son was missing from school. Fortunately, his son was found and so was a new idea from an entrepreneurial father who was already involved in footwear.

The technology consists of a 2 x 3-inch computer inserted in the shoe which is weather-proof, shock-proof, and can survive up to 300 lbs. of human. It even has a panic button in case of an emergency. The shoes will be available next month in a limited quantity online for $325-$350 and accessible to the general public by March.
