One might expect the most comfortable shoes in the world to come from a well known shoe brand, one of those companies that spend hundreds of millions of dollars a month on advertising. Instead, they come from a company that is well known for innovation but not necessarily footwear: Gadget Universe.
It started with the research of rubber for the construction and automobile industries. Scientists investigating shock absorption for buildings and automobiles discovered a special polymer that was both lightweight and absorbed shock and vibration. The research lead to the development of the very first Gravity Defyer Shoe: the Catapult MMXT3.
What is the Gravity Defyer?
It was scientifically constructed with a hidden 6mm (1/8″) shock absorber under the heel that releases its reciprocating resistance power each time you step. As your weight changes to the balls of your feet, the hidden shock absorber generates upward pressure, rebounding your body upward and propelling you forward in life.
It’s almost as if Aeolus, the Greek god of wind, himself has taken his powerful wind out of his bottles and put it into each pair of the Gravity Defyer Shoes. Your entire body will receive an energy burst when you slip on the Gravity Defyer Shoes because your joints and spine will no longer feel the full impact of your high impact life. The basic findings by the scientists of the Impact Research Technology Lab were that the combination of lightweight rubber and lightweight, durable springs will reduce the impact and force of gravity on our entire body much the same way that a suspension system helps reduce the impact on an automobile and airplane.
Look great too! We all have them, an expensive pair of dress shoes for those special occasions. The shoes that world famous secret agents wear to the black tie party where they end up doing some reconnaissance before they are chased around a European city by evil henchmen. The kind of dress shoes that show class, style, and sophistication but are so uncomfortable you can’t wait to take them off. Designed by the best shoe designers from three continents, the Gravity Defyer Shoes provide you with all the sophistication and comfort needed to keep up with the best of the world famous secret agents.
Every shoe is also sent through a comprehensive quality assurance process to ensure that each pair of Gravity Defyer Shoes adheres to the highest standards set forth by the Alexander Innovation Wizard. Relieve your feet, ankles, knees, hips, and spine. Give your whole body a break from the pressures of your daily life.
Nearly a week into 2008, and I am long overdue for a post. What better way than to recap my favorites of 2007:
Favorite blog on my blogroll: 800lb Gorilla
Favorite color: Powder blue from the San Diego Charger jerseys
Favorite day: Day before my birthday (My brother and I ran the LA Triathlon Sprint)
Favorite city: Many to choose from, but gotta love Chicago (even during February)
Favorite SkyMall gadget: Gotta love the Gravity Defyer Shoes
Favorite conspiracy theory: Tom Cruise was cloned by Xenu and the clone is the crazy one we’ve seen in recent years
Favorite book: If I Did It. Just kidding. The Seven Lost Secrets of Success. Joe Vitale has mastered success and is passing it along. That’s the way it should be!
Favorite moment at work: There are so many to choose from. While the Montel Williams show was interesting and The Talking Show was a first, neither of them is the top choice. Not quite the top either, the GBK Oscars Gift Suite was certainly enjoyable, as was the Scriptwriter’s Showcase. I even learned about how bad the strike would be months before it happened. Even though having Reggie Bush on the cover of the magazine was nice, that too was not my favorite moment. My favorite moment at work definitely has to be when I realized I had a great advertisement.
Favorite dance event: 2007 US Open. The Moorpark College Swing Dance Team received second place in their very first team competition at the US Open. I was one of the founding members of the college club at Moorpark, so it was particularly enjoyable to see them do so well in their first competition.
Favorite radio moment: When I was doing the Gadget Panel Radio show while on the road, heading to a Dodgers game. My phone cut out and Gadget Panelist Vadim was unable to get himself on the phone circuit. Great radio!
Favorite blog I didn’t write: The blog recapping my trip to New Zealand with the 20GB of pictures and photos I took while down under.
Favorite Movie: Ratatouille. The little ones teach us so much in life.
Favorite Website: Ext JS. The web’s future is so bright it’s gotta wear shades. My favorite demo is the desktop sample. My nerd side is shining.
The Gravity Defyer Shoes are a hot item. They were a huge hit when they debuted at the 2007 CES. Yes, shoes made their debut at the largest consumer electronics show. A crazy idea, but it actually makes sense, given the amount of time people spend on their feet.
I love these shoes. I wear them to work every day. The first time I realized how comfortable they are is when I decided to wear another pair of shoes to work. Um, that didn’t work out very well. Gimme my GDS! I’ve given about a dozen pairs of these shoes to my friends who have complained about shoe comfort. Even the pickiest of friends had something good to say about the comfort.
See what people said about the shoes at the CES as well as what other bloggers and reporters have to say around the web:
