The Adidas Megalizer Creates Cool Music as You Move

These new Adidas Megalizer sneakers prove that Nike is finally getting some hot competition on the both the campaign and shoe front. This high-tech shoe is unlike anything on the market right now. Perfect for the breakdancer and the musician, it actually makes sounds as you move.

A collaboration piece with French coder Didier Brun, the Adidas Megalizer sneaker has unique sensors in each shoe that, along with a wireless transmitter, captures the pressure applied to the sensors. The wearer then controls the sounds they make using an interface.

Worn by the French hip hop act Les Twins in a promotional video, the Adidas Megalizer sneaker seems to be a rebuttal to Nike's online film that shows its Free Run+ shoes plugged in and becoming a part of a DJ kit.
