The Transformer Shoes!

Manolo says, ayyyyyy! Your shoes can now become the robot!

This combination picture (clockwise from top left) shows Japanese toymaker Tomy Company’s “Transformers Sports Label Convoy feat. Nike Free 7.0″ in Tokyo April 25, 2007. The toy transforms from a pair of plastic half-scale Nike shoes into a toy robot called ‘Convoy’. The robot, which was created as a collaboration between the two companies, will go on sale in Japan on April 26, 2007 for a price of 2,625 yen ($22). REUTERS/Yuriko Nakao (JAPAN)

Perfect if you are ten years of age, or the eternally youthful fanboy!
