There’s a popular energy drink out there that talks about giving you wings, but Shwings actually do the trick, although these are more for style than function so don’t go jumping off your house or anything like that. Things could turn out badly for you.

With all the different ways people are trying to draw attention to their footwear, I’m surprised something like this hasn’t come out before. After all, Hermes (read up on your mythology) was rocking the winged ankle look a long time ago.

Shwings come in a variety eye-catching colors and they couldn’t be any easier to use. Just thread your shoelaces through the holes and you’ll be as fleet of foot as a god, able to soar beyond the highest reaches of mere mortal men.

Ahem! Okay, maybe those things won’t actually happen, but you will get plenty of attention with your new role as a winged wonder.


  • One size fits most shoes.
  • Measure 4.75 inches long x 2.25 inches tall.
