    A pair of motorised shoes that can propel the wearer at 10mph are expected to become a hit with commuters.

    The £415 battery powered creations are strapped to the owner's shoes and controlled via a wireless remote control.

    The spnKiX can travel between two and three miles per charge and steering is controlled by the wearer leaning into turns.

    Speed can be varied via the remote control and they come with removable training wheels to ease people into using them.

    Designer Peter Treadway first came up with the idea five years ago after struggling to find a parking space.

    Since then he has created over 30 prototypes and is now set to release the shoes via his website in February.

    Peter, from Los Angeles, California, said: 'The idea just came to me one day when I was looking for a parking space in order to get some lunch.

    'After driving around for half an hour I couldn't find one so had to drive back home instead.

    What would be bad is if one went 10mph and the other went 12mph, this is how my luck works.:eek:
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB
