Sneaker-Creeper is a futuristic shoe made of elastic materials that offer wearers enhanced flexibility and comfort. Inspired by living organisms, the shoe can adapt to its surroundings a little more literally than most other models. The shoes are made up of a "soft robotic sole," which can expand and contract using a gas or liquid. This means that the shoes can move and wiggle while the wearer stands still.

Through this adaptability, a single pair of shoes can be used to perform a number of tasks, such as cross-country running, playing basketball or simply running errands. The flexible pair of futuristic sneakers offers the wearer protection against the elements, while performing as a fashionable, multi-purpose shoe.
