Shoe vending machine hits the streets.


After a long night of dancing and partying at the hottest nightclubs, especially if you like to let loose Studio 54 style, there’s nothing worse than having to walk home in the high-fashion heels or stilettos that you started the evening with. Fashionable and convenient vending machines popping up all across the UK to give club goers (and those suffering from other emergency shoe dilemmas) the convenience of comfortable shoe dispensing when they need it most.

In the spring of 2008, Japanese sports brand Onitsuka Tiger placed its first automated selling device on one of London’s high streets to bring the convenience of sneaker dispensing to the public, without ever having to set foot inside a store. The Onitsuka Tiger shoe vending machines fit 24 pairs of shoes, which retail for the equivalent of $60 to $80 USD. The sneaker vending machines continued their journey around the UK to bring convenient dispensing of their six sizes of trainers to vending machines around the UK.

Will it work… I don’t know but you will need a lot of feet (pun intended) to pass this machine in order for it to be a success.

What do you think?
