Walking On Water

Thank you to Tom Furman for posting this to a forum I frequent.

In my younger years, I worked as a life guard. After closing, we would put the flexible pool covering over the water and have contests to see how far we could run before sinking - the technique that worked w. it (running "lightly" with quick feet) seems to be what they are using here. We never thought to actually try it on bare water!!! Amazing. :)

Very clever.

I wonder how effective it is if people don't even notice it.

It's just a viral marketing campaign for the shoes, no miracles here.

Niel,
You mean the smiley, or the running technique?

Actually the shoes Boris.

I caught a glimpse of them but I didn't even catch name.
