Pioneer is a shoe that converts the kinetic energy of walking into electrical energy, which powers a headlight at the front of the shoe.

Chen Feijun and Zhao Bin designed a shoe ,Pioneer, that converts the kinetic energy of walking into electrical energy, which powers a headlight at the front of the shoe. The red dot award: design concept 2007 winner is a smart fashion choice for any evening/ night activity.

Pioneer is based on the idea that the mechanical movement (and energy) of walking can be converted to electric power within the shoe. The electric power is stored in a battery in the sole of the shoe, and once charged, it can be successfully used to power a headlight for twelve hours. That is to say, it can last for a whole night, and it can be re-charged during the walk.
The surface material is waterproof and allows ventilation. The sole is made of waterproof solid rubber, which is also used to absorb shock and make walking more comfortable. This material is also good for protecting the battery and circuit. Adopting LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology, the headlight is small in size, low in power consumption, and provides a good source of light. It is positioned in the rubber of the sole. The maximum scope of the light is 1.5m to the front. A bulge of rubber in the lower sole prevents the wearer from kicking the light itself. There is just one button to control the light switch. The button is pressed once to turn the light on, and once again to turn it off.
