French brand Faiyue is advertising their shoes with this stylized video portraying a make-your-own flying shoes kit. Expect cameos from hobby glue, an oscilloscope, and more. It portrays making as very hip, in a music video kind of way. [via Fashioning Technology]

    Nice! I ordered two pairs! I can’t wait to see the looks on my co-worker’s faces.

    I’m just back from Shanghai, and I feel a little bit confused about this post. Feiyue is a Chinese brand, Beckys links in her post to a french copycat firm selling the same shoes twice the price they really worth. Not very ethical in my opinion. BTW, vid’s great.
