Sketchers Adds a Matching Game to Kids Shoes
Thursday Jan 8, 2015 (00:04:04)
One of the fun things about CES is getting to see companies who seem like they don't fit, and seeing what idea they bring to the table. This year, one of the companies that surprised us by showing off a truly interesting product was Sketchers, the shoe company.
This year, the company is releasing a line of shoes with a lighted matching game built directly into the side. Playing similar to the game Simon, kids get 8 rounds of increasing pattern to match. If they match all 8 rounds, they are treated to a light show from their feet.
From laptops and Lumia to Surface and Xbox, get it at the Microsoft Store.
