A quick search on Instructables and you can come up with plans to build your own speakers, but what are the chances that you would have thought to build them out of sneakers? (Although the rhyming name alone was kind of begging for these to exist.) Sneaker Speakers are the brainchild of high-end sneaker customizer Nashmoney, designed for the Havana Club’s Inspired Ingenuity creative competition. Starting off as a pair of Nike Air Force 1 sneakers, Nashmoney modified them to include a full-range and tweeter as well as volume controls and an amp built into the right shoe, or left speaker as it were. Just looking at the Sneaker Speakers might make anyone want to crank up some tunes and run on the treadmill for an hour. Although to be honest most people would probably be more likely to listen to the traffic report and eat some poptarts.
