Virgin America's first class seats on flights are luxurious, to say the least, and the company is showing that experience with the Virgin America First Class sneakers. The shoes, made as a collaboration between Virgin and Milanese design companies Eleven Inc. and SearchnDesign, come replete with a Wi-Fi connection, mood lighting, a video display and a built-in phone charger.

The Virgin America First Class shoe isn't just luxurious -- it's also exclusive. In fact, Virgin and its design partners only plan to sell a single pair of the shoes. The sale isn't purely for the sake of a nice pair of kicks, though. 100 percent of the money made from the sale of the shoes will go to Soles4Soles, a global non-profit that distributes shoes and clothing to people in poverty.
