Presenting… the Google Shoe

Post from March 16, 2009 (↻ August 24, 2017), filed under .

They finally arrived, long longed for Google shoes, in this case the “Google j9t” model based on the Adidas ZX700. They’re not for sale but I might share the configuration I used to design them. The “Google j9t” may only be worn for dynamite fishing and important launches.

Google j9t, the shoe, first act.
Google j9t, the shoe, second act.
Google j9t, the shoe, third act.

It goes without saying that this model is real but the post just for fun. Neither do I own any rights to something like a “Google Shoe” nor am I aware of anyone else having the right to it—except for my employer, sure.
