X-Ray Boots Have Transparent Soles, Just Because

Can Citizen Journalism work in the UK? Blottr thinks it has the formula


I was going to write that the transparent soles let you see what’s “underneath” the tread, but it’s not really underneath, since the sole’s on the bottom, right? It’s barely “above,” and it’s not really “inside.” So I scrapped the headline and wrote this paragraph.

The Hiker X-Ray boots from Feit have a transparent bit so you can check out the “bamboo shank, cork foot bed and thread weave” that make these hand-made shoes special. They’re a bit flashy, in my opinion, and I’m afraid the clear part would get scuffed up and lose its window-like aspect, but it’s still kind of cool.

The boots will set you back $315; there will only be 50 pairs made.
