Virgin America Gives Flight To The 'first Class Shoe'
There’s a new sneaker that just might outdo the Nike Mag in technical wizardry. Virgin America has teamed up with Eleven Inc and Italian creator SearchnDesign to release the cutting-edge First Class Shoe. Taking cues from the plush experience of a first class flight, the deluxe white leather high-top is teched-out like no other with mood lighting, Wi-Fi and even a USB port to recharge a smartphone. Upping the ante to sky-high levels, a small monitor sits on the tongue and plays the Virgin America safety video.
Only one pair of the special edition First Class Shoe was made, making it an ultra-rare drop. Passengers hoping to take the advanced apparatus on a maiden flight can do so by bidding via ebay. All proceeds will be donated to Soles4Souls, a non-profit charity committed to fighting poverty through the distribution of shoes and clothing.
