Lacoste Laser Cruiser


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: Designed for bicyclists and joggers, Adam Nagy’s Lacoste Laser Cruiser shoe features electroluminescent fabric that not only gives the shoe head-turning style, but an added layer of defense and safety. Much brighter and longer lasting than glow-in-the-dark plastic, the EL fabric can be activated and deactivated by the wearer so they are glowing only when they want to be seen. Simply hold the heels together for a few seconds and BAM- Tron lighting at your feet!

Enko – Running Shoes


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: Wild in both function and aesthetic, Enko is a revolutionary running shoe which, with its two shock absorbers, conserves all the energy stored in each stride. With a normal shoe, when your foot touches the ground, the energy is completely lost. In contrast, Enko stores up the energy and redelivers it when you lift your heel off the ground again to make your running extremely efficient.

Urbanized Cycling Shoe


Overview: The Urbanized Cycling Shoe was designed with two goals in mind: keep riders dry and look good while doing it. With standard cleats riders must carry a second pair of shoes to change in to after riding, but this concept is less rigid while being more waterproof, making them comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Built in LED lights at the heels also provide a layer of safety not offered by current cleats. Minimal, sleek and stylish, you might find yourself wearing them even when you’re not cycling!
