Mercury in-line skates will get you noticed for the wrong reasons

Let’s face facts. Rollerblading went out of style the same time grown men started using it for excercise (mid 90s). Strapping anything to your feet with a bright red and yellow colour scheme is a bad idea. And attaching springs and airbags to a pair of in-line skates will not make them feel like you’re skating on ice. That said, there is a certain something about this concept pair from designer Pouyan Mokhtarani. The ethos is that by cushioning your feet with pockets of air, your skating will be smoother (like that across a frozen lake, apparently) and the lack of vibrations will be kinder on your joints. We’re not sure about that, but we do know that bolting springs on a pair of rollers will inevitably lead to some crazy stunts.
