Spotted at the Sneaker Pimps tour finale NY, these NES shoes are probably the greatest thing ever. We can only assume they play NES games, and if such is the case, we declare this footwear to have "won." Gizmodo will now give up its quest of searching for the ultimate gadget, and will return to its original mission: a blog focused on the teachings of the character Gizmo and his/her various hairstyles. Yes, it will be a step down for us all. We apologize for this shoe's awesomeness, but retro gaming footwear is a force that cannot be stopped. [flickr via crunchgear]
Mark. I too was seduced at first, but think this all the way through.
You know you have those friends that really shouldn't take their shoes off when they come over to your house for gaming?
How would you feel if those same friends not only took their shoes off, but put said shoes in the middle of the room, right between you and the TV?
You see where I'm going here?
