We never thought we’d live to see the day where we were talking on a shoe, Get Smart-style. Technology still hasn’t advanced nearly enough to make authentic shoe-talking anything more than a distant dream, but the next best thing — a phone from a shoe manufacturer — is now available. Actually, “available” is a bit of a stretch since the Puma Phone has only launched in nine European, African, and Middle Eastern countries so far, but we’d hope that a wider launch is on the way. And hey, to be fair, we bet the solar panels on back work spectacularly in the African sun. Pricing will naturally vary by locale, retailer, and subsidy, but you can generally look to find it for about €399 (0) SIM-free.
