This bike uses shoes where tyres should be, and the results are predictable

Adidas and Continental collaboration has got sole

The shoe bike from Adidas/Continental

Sports clothing giant Adidas has showcased its ongoing relationship with tyre manufacturer Continental by producing one of the weirdest bikes we’ve ever seen.

The shoe bike uses six Adidas shoes (complete with Continental rubber soles) in place of each of the bike’s wheels and tyres. The result is a somewhat bumpy and incredibly weird looking vehicle.

It’s the same promotional bike that the company unveiled at last year’s Prudential RideLondon event. To be honest, we kind of want a go.

Still, this shoe bike pales in comparison to the one that Travis Pastrana and his team produced a few years back, check that out in the video below.
