The Verge: Custom PS4 Nike Air Jordans show why your next sneakers need HDMI ports

Cassandra Khaw writing for The Verge:

If you've ever wanted to showcase your love for the Playstation 4 on the streets, these $950 custom sneakers might help you step out in style. As reported by DualShockers, the "JRDN 4 X PS4" combines the design of the classic Nike Air Jordan 4 with elements from Sony's next-gen console, most notably its HDMI port.


Sadly, the outlets are strictly decorative. "The HDMI ports have no real function, apart from looking cool," says creator Jonny Barry in an interview.

Are you kidding me? Seriously? $950 for a pair of shoes because of the addition of a $2 connector?? I'm not much of a shoe guy and I know that Jordan's are pricy, but heck if you want this just buy the connector or grab one from an old electronic thing and put it in the shoe. This is one of the dumbest things I have ever seen. I hope someone can explain to me why a shoe would need fake HDMI ports... (and no, the cable as a carrying strap is not a good one.)
