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, of 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 generally enjoy being about twelve inches higher than those who don't have them yet.

Being covered with sparkling material, they will twinkle randomly under your feet, should you chose to wear them when out dancing, as they double up as one of those inverted disco ceiling globes.

       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.
