Boom. Boom. Boom. When we listen to music we also feel it as different genres arise different feelings. Same goes for video games, movies, and more. So what if I told you that you can physically feel the beats and rhythm go through your body thanks to a pair of sneakers? Yes, feeling the sounds through your feet with the DROPLABS, new and improved version: their “ EP 01.”  Founded by Susan Paley, the shoes had first come out last November and are now back better than ever.

When you put on your own, get ready to experience a whole new cinematic, music listening and video game playing experiences. As of right now, festivals are not going on but nothing is stopping you from having your own and all you need are earphones and a pair of these sneakers! Are you a movie binger? Video Game lover? Great! These sneakers are perfect for everyone. No matter what you are feeling like doing when you wake up, they are here to make sure

Trevor Humphrey, Director of Customer Experience, walked me through it over zoom and what a crazy experience!  You put the shoes on, download the app, connect and boom! On the app, you can customize your experience by selecting a specific one from “cinematic” to more! It will adjust your listening experience based on what you plan on listening to whether it be EDM or a war video game! You can also control the intensity of the shoe… You are truly the master of your own concert.

With everything going on in our world, DROPLABS is happy to partake in making a better change. They are now working with When We All Vote organization, as they are focusing on supporting everyone to register to vote. Some artists such as Justin Park (who is about to drop a brand new song later this month) and Bonnie McKee (Katy Perry’s songwriter) absolutely love DROPLABS and have shown their full support throughout this process as well.

When I first tried these sneakers I couldn’t believe it. Smiling like a child on Christmas morning, I have found myself completely obsessed with these sneakers! Two of the first song I listened to were BOOM and LIT by Lay Zhang…And let me tell you what great picks!! Make sure to get your pair and dive into your own world where you control what you hear, what you feel, and in the exact way you want it.
