Vibrating shoes may seem like a strange invention, but for those who need some help navigating, they’re perfect. The shoes don’t shake relentlessly, but they do provide small vibrating nudges to point the user in the right direction.

These shoes are called Lechal and come in a futuristic sleek design and two colors, red and black with the opposite for trim. The shoes are directed to the partially sighted or completely blind to help them get around locations with relative ease.

The Lechal vibrating shoes almost point in the direction of where the user is supposed to go by vibrating to give them a soft nudge there. Considering the shoes would probably be the only shoes the person would be wearing, they come in washable materials that make them easy to keep clean.
