Intended to add depth to streamed media, DropLabs EP 01 sneakers employ vibrations in their soles to accompany audio you’re listening to.

Whether it be while watching a movie on the plane, in the gym (doing toning work), or during a gaming session, the vibrations pick up the deep bass on hard-hitting tracks and the high-hats on jazz tunes—plus every little detail in horror flicks or action games. They’re both good-looking and comfortable, too. Pre-orders ship between mid-December and early January depending on the selected size.
