Transformers Take To The Shoes

We’ve seen the anticipation of the upcoming “Transformers” movie through an iPod dock, but what about taking it up one notch? If you’re really feeling bold, you can get a pair of sneakers with Transformers ready to pop out.

They’re basically half-size, scaled-down Nike’s (nope, you can’t wear ’em) that each unfold into a menacing, weapon-wielding robot. If you’re familiar with the series, you’ll be getting Convoy and Megatron in the form of sneakers—guaranteed to bring out your inner-child. One could almost argue that they’re robots in disguise?

They do look pretty rad, though. A sum of $59 will net you a pair of both robots and shoe-tying lessons aren’t included.
