Cordones calientes para invierno

Los cordones de zapatillas son esos complementos de los pies que suelen ser ignorados por todo el mundo excepto por los asesinos en serie, que ven en ellos una herramienta para la asfixia y un potencial llavero.

Alexey Chugunnikov quiere darles más protagonismo creando un sistema de calentamiento en los propios cordones. El calor debe ser suministrado por un cargador que, supongo, deberemos llevar siempre encima por si acaso (como el del iPhone, vamos). De esta forma, se puede regular el calor que recibe el pie mediante los cordones antes de llegar a la fase de congelación y sufrir la amputación pertinente, algo que aconsejamos evitar para que no se nos llene la casa de zapatos sueltos.

Los que penséis calentar al máximo los cordones, atarlos, lanzarlos a un cable de la luz y provocar un colapso energético probablemente os sintáis decepcionados, pero, hey, bien pensado.

  1. An average man in his everyday life has to dry his shoes very seldom. But this issue is relevant for sportsmen. After an intensive workout shoes are as wet as sportswear, and they also need careful handling. But one cannot wash shoes after every workout. There’s only one option- to dry your shoes to use them next time.
    Footwear brands offer special technologies for home ventilation and drying of shoes: they range from materials used to make shoes to electric shoe dryers, which can be used only at home due to their size and low mobility.

    I’d like to bring to your attention a new concept of electric shoe dryers, the basic idea of which is that a warm air generator is located in shoestrings. Rather, shoestrings are shoe dryers themselves.

    ”Warm Shoestrings”
    The base of the design is the material that conducts electricity, self heats and emits heat. The material is flexible, elastic, resistant to any mechanical impact, it is packed in a special safe nonflammable case. It looks esthetically good and almost doesn’t differ from normal shoestrings (has a variety of textures and colors).The only visual difference is colorful isolating caps on the metal ends of shoestrings (pins). They help user to determine which pin should be connected to which socket of the controller.
    The controller unit is light and needs little space in a bag or pocket. Apart from power line connection the controller also provides shoestrings heating up to the necessary temperature (“The iron” principle- it heats up to the certain temperature and then maintains this temperature level). The heated air temperature ranges between 40 and 60 °C. The heated air goes into the inside through the upper part of the shoe and through air gaps.
    The big advantage of the “warm shoestrings” is their location. They are always with the shoes that might need drying, and therefore they are mobile. It’s possible to start a drying process anytime and anywhere if you have a power line connection and “warm shoestrings”.

    “Warm shoestrings” may be used by sportsmen, rescuers, military men, workmen…Those people, whose calling or profession is connected with long hours on foot, outside or in severe climate conditions. That’s the reason why their shoes need special care.
    “Warm shoestrings” will definitely be helpful to parents of the future discoverers and researchers, and also to people who experience discomfort from sweating. “Warm shoestrings” will provide elderly people who take care of their health with dry and warm shoes.
