Podiatrists created the 30 pounds 'Breezewalk shoes' for a Californian innovation company, Gadget Universe.

The designers claim that the system in the shoes is designed in such a way that it provides a constant cool wind-stream around the foot, which could prevent moisture and bacteria from building up between the toes, giving fungal infections and athletes' foot the boot, reports Telegraph.

The uppers suck in air through tiny holes in the laces and sole, which then circulates around the feet.

A pump under the heel pushes the air back out through the sole when the wearer takes a step forward.

The revolutionary shoes can be worn in all weathers thanks to a membrane over the holes which allows air in but stops rain from making your socks wet.

Breezewalk shoes are available online for men only but women's designs could be produced soon.
