Handheld party

An accidental trip to the Virtual Shoe Museum led me to these insane Game Boy platforms that Helen Red Richards designed for Nintendo's 2001 Style Campaign. The $2000 shoes with removable color-coordinated Game Boys (apparently you could buy these??) were described by Nintendo as being for the "club kids with attention deficit disorder." I can picture the scenario going something like this: [club kid 1] "This DJ sucks man!" [club kid 2] "I don't feel these pills working yet." [club kid 3] "Wanna play my Game Boys? I have two :)"
