Emergency Pump Shoes / shoes

Emergency Pump Shoes

In outdoor activities, there may be a case where the inflatable equipment lacks gas.As a result, we designed a kind of pneumatic shoes with an air pump.The air pump shoes are used as the pump, which can be inflated in the emergency.When people are in the field, the bicycle tires are flat.You can untie your shoelace. Then in-sert one end of the shoelace into the pump in the sole and the other end into the tire's valve core.After that, the air pump is used to inflate the tire by stepping ontinually.The pump shoes can not only inflate the tires, but also can be used for rescue safety suppli-es such as life buoy and life jacket.
