These shoes do exactly that and use the age old technique called Furoshiki (cloth wrapping for transporting goods) to give the traditional shoe design a...

Definitely you can surpass that number by employing fuel-efficient driving a.k.a hypermiling, but two blokes extended that figure by almost double and forced the Tesla Motors CEO to retweet their achievement. Bjørn Nyland, a programmer at the University of Oslo and his friend Morgan drove Tesla Model S P85D 452.8 miles (728.7 km) on a single charge which is a record of sorts.
