Ideal for any situation, the Adidas Smart Shoe is a winner for the physically active and geeky-chic alike.

You can find this at Amazon.

Transformers (as seen in the popular movies and TV series) act as urban camouflage by transforming into a variety of everyday items that detract from their superhero-like looks and abilities. While unfortunately the Transformer Nike Shoes are not wearable fashions, Transformers do change easily into ½ scale models of the popular sneaker brand.

Keyboard shoes may not actually be functional, but sure would complete a geek-friendly outfit for those who are fans of the peripheral pants I wrote about a couple of weeks ago!
Geeky Shoe 1. CD-ROM Shoes
These geeky CD-ROM Shoes can play data CDs or audio CDs on the go! With an integrated CD-ROM, a volume control knob and speakers, it's an updated trend of the 80's which encourages individuals to carry portable, audible boom-box style systems on the go. An outdated concept? Probably. But that only increases this geeky fashion's entrance into geekdom.
