Pinksage Adidas Top Ten Kicks
@pinksage: Adidas



A couple of days ago, we hit up the Chic Dish Twitter account and asked our followers to send in a picture of the kicks that they were wearing at that very moment. It was an experiment, and if 20 responses came in, we would have given a $20 Zappos gift certificate away randomly to one of the submitters. Unforunately, we only got 17 submissions, so no giveaway on this one—however, we are going to do this regularly, so be on the lookout, and be sure to follow Chic Dish on Twitter.

That said, we had a great time checking out the submissions, all of which you can find after the jump, along with the Twitter user who sent it in. Go take a look, and let us know what you think - any favorites?

Edit: Okay, we are getting a few questions about the roll of toilet paper in the above photo—we checked with @pinksage, and apparently, she has “the sniffles” and was too lazy, or broke (have you seen the economy lately), to do it up right and grab a box of Kleenex.

Maxwell Smart Shoe Phone Closer Than We Think

ArchPort ShoesFrom TV show to movie to reality. ArchPort founder and president Matt Potts has already incorporated a slot in the sole of his shoe for wallets, keys, and credit cards. The man says that he came up with the idea in 1989 when playing tennis. The sandals and sneakers are named for the storage location, and Potts says that he sees them carrying smaller GPS devices, remote controls, MP3 players, heaters, and yes, even a diminutive cell phone a la “Get Smart” in the future.

WiFi Nike Dunks

WiFi Nike Dunks

We have seen lots of clothing for catching WiFi signals, so it is no surprise that Nike Dunks have the same built-in. Named “A Step in the Right Direction,” the sneakers were designed by MSTRPLN and Ubiq. There are 3 LEDs on the flap enclosure that will go solid when it registers a signal up to 50 meters. These are not the kind of shoes to wear on a rainy day, we suspect. Contact Nike for price and availability.
