Shoe news of late has spotlighted monstrous platforms, towering high heels and ridiculous decoration.  Now comes a shoe that  combines cutting edge design with high tech function.  The Enko is a fantastically designed shoe created by Christian Freschi, a dedicated runner.  The highly developed concept involves in-sole cushions and coils that absorb shock and release it by thrusting your foot upwards and forwards.  A gear on the side of each shoe allows you to adjust the coils for either running or walking.  The Enko incorporates sustainability by offering replaceable rubber soles instead of discarding a worn out pair.  Currently seeking financial backing on Indiegogo, for $390 you can reserve your own Enko shoes in blue, purple, black, green or white.  Delivery is estimated for August of this year.
