Virgin America’s First Class Shoe

This past fall, Virgin America collaborated with Eleven and Milan’s SearchnDesign to create a truly one-of-a-kind pair of sneakers. I mean… have you ever seen a pair of sneakers with wifi and a video screen built in? Is this something that you would ever necessarily need? Maybe not, but it’s still cool to say that you have them! Made out of Italian leather (the same ones that Virgin America’s first class seats are made of)  these are the first of its kind to have all of these features and a built in charger. What can’t these sneakers do? There was only one pair made and they were auctioned off on eBay for a whopping $97,877.77. Wow. Don’t worry, it’s all going to charity and the proceeds were given to Soles4Souls, which is committed to fighting poverty through clothing and shoes distribution.
