Bloobie Dazzlers look like normal gym
sneakers until you pump up the balloon
attachment on each of their soles. This
swells up to become a soft, springy ball,
the same consistency and resilience as
that of those large exercise spheres, now
common in most gyms.
You can balance on
them, walk around,
dance, bounce up and down, and
enjoy being about twelve inches higher
those who don't have them yet.
Being covered with sparkling material,
they will twinkle randomly
under your feet, should you chose to
them when out dancing, as they double
up as one of those inverted disco
like these only a bit smaller and one attached underneath each shoe [xenzag, Mar 18 2007]
(?) Masai Barefoot Technology
Shoes with a convex sole; claims multiple health benefits. The "Research" section points to three small studies. [jutta, Mar 18 2007]

||Is it Blobbie or Bloobie?
One of these names has bounce but the other is flat.
||That sounds nice and stable. Market them to children for wearing around china shops.
||You might be on to something. There are shoes with slightly rounded soles - much less than this idea proposes - whose manufacturer claims health benefits (improved leg muscle tension, improved balance.)
||[+] Stilts.... bouncy
shoes.... sparkly.... wobbly.... I'd buy some,
even though I'm nearly a grown-up.
||I vote for Bloobie Dazzlers.
||it has to be Blobbie - as in the plural of
blob... it's also a variation of the
compliment: "to be a real Bobby
Dazzler" - see link
||Work with me on this one. Say it, c'mon, say it. Bloobie. Now that's just nice. It rolls off the tongue well, it's recognisable, it's cool.
Now let's do Blobbie. Harsh. Short. Transfers the emphasis to the "Dazzler" part.
"Hey Jimmy, whatcha want for Christmas?"
"Pair of Bloobies, man"
||The foot balls should be shaped and colored like footballs.
