Everything except helping the wearer predict the winning horse has been built into this shoe
WHAT do you get when you ask a bunch of racing enthusiasts what features they’d want in a racing shoe?
This. Behold, the Unpredictaheel, also known as ‘the race shoe that’s ready for anything’. And it definitely lives up to that second name.
The eccentric world-first shoe, which will be strutting its stuff at the Sydney Spring Carnival this year, comes with eight useful features including a ‘view boost,’ giving racegoers a better view of the action. Now there’s no excuse to ask a stranger if you can climb on top of their shoulders. Ladies, you know who you are.
Lady Gaga’s shoe designer Kira Goodey and E! Host Ksenija Lukich teamed up with the Australian Turf Club to bring this futuristic shoe to life.
‘The Unpredictaheel’ features include:
Dance support: Padding to keep wearer comfortable while dancing in the marquee
Style Switch: Switchable coloured and textured panels for different race looks
Bet Guide: Directions to the betting ring via left/right turn pulsing notifications in each heel
View Boost: Raises the height of the wearer to get a better view of the action
Track Proof: Thick heel allowing wearer to walk effortlessly across grass
Race Alert: Vibrating heels that alert the wearer two minutes before each race starts
Kick & Pay: Pay with a flick of the heel thanks to a built-in NFC
You can kiss those plain, beige pumps goodbye.
