Virgin America’s New Custom Sneakers Are Like Flying First Class

While Nike continues to wow the world with the latest self-lacing Air Mag sneakers, Virgin America has released the First Class sneakers. The customised sneakers would serve as a walking ad for the airline company.

However, the pair of First Class is even more exclusive than the Nike Air Mag; only one pair of the unique sneakers is up for grabs. The Virgin America kicks drew inspiration from the flying experience in the airline’s first class. The First Class sneakers will help you enjoy the feeling of travelling first class with Virgin America, even when your feet don’t leave the ground!

The Virgin America First Class sneakers have been designed using the same Italian white leather as used to upholster the airline’s first class cabin seats. The kicks also feature a Wi-Fi hotspot, LED mood lighting, and a tiny LCD to enjoy movies. To give it a realistic touch, a functional aeroplane belt buckle is also included in the design. The First Class sneakers are powered by a battery that can last up to three hours and can be recharged via USB port.



The pair of exclusive sneakers would be auctioned off, and the proceedings from the sale will go to Soles4Souls charity.
