Nike sneakers which detects Wifi hotspots

This is for sure the new trend in fashion geekiness. A Step in the Right Direction is it’s name and was designed by mstrpln in collaboration with Ubiq boutique.


The sneaker is equipped with an integrated wireless internet detection unit embedded under the flap of the left shoe. As you walk your shoes scans the surrounding area for Wi-Fi signals and the result is
displayed to you with the help of some LEDs.

A blinking LED represents no signal, while a solid LED shows that there is a signal present.



They are not as modern as I expected, they are quite retro, but who cares when you will be transformed in a ‘Wifi finder android’.


The sneaker is based on the Nike Dunk which was transformed by mstrpln to help you find the Internet wherever you go.
