As the retro shoe craze slows, two high profile shoe manufacturers are putting out high tech shoes running in completely different directions. Adidas has introduced the Adidas 1, boasted to be the world’s first "smart shoe". It includes a computer chip, battery and motor integrated into the sole that adapts the shoe’s cushioning level to a runner’s size and stride. Meanwhile, Nike has unveiled the Nike Free, which was designed to mimic the way the muscles of your feet move when running barefoot on grass.
