These futuristic trainers have a built-in TV, phone charger and wi-fi


Those Nike self-tying trainers from Back To The Future not technologically advanced enough for you? Then these ultra futuristic trainers created by Virgin America will be right up your street, as they have a TV, wi-fi, mood lighting and a phone charger built into them.

Inspired by the First Class experience aboard a Virgin America plane, these trainers also feature premium Italian white leather and buckle fastening, just like their luxurious chairs, which will be delivered to you in an LED-lit plexiglass display case so you can display them on a mantelpiece, because in no way will you endanger these bad boys being scuffed by the outside world.

But if you want them you're going to have to be eager (as well as loaded), as there's only one pair for sale on eBay.

The current price sits at a staggering $99,000, and all proceeds will go to non-profit charity Soles4Souls, which helps fight poverty by donating new clothes and shoes to the homeless.
