Lots of people love taking trips and going on vacation. But walking what seems like a million steps to get to your gate at the airport? Not so much.

Enter the “segway shoes” that are now trending on TikTok. User @theflylifeofjamie recently posted a video of people rolling around the airport wearing the high-tech “segway shoes,” and it’s blowing up. The video now has more than 80,000 likes and over 5,000 shares.

Segway Ninebot Drift W1, Electric Roller Skates Hovershoes, $469.99

In the video, those gadgets on people’s feet are actually the Ninebot Drift W1 Electric Roller Skates Hovershoes by Segway. Yes, the brand many people know and love for the handy rolling devices used by mall cops is now here to make your airport experience a little easier.

Given that the “segway shoes” look like something straight out of the future, it shouldn’t be surprising that they’ll cost you a pretty penny. One pair is just under $470 on Amazon.

However, despite the high price tag, shoppers are raving about the “segway shoes.” They currently have more than 550 ratings and 4.3 out of 5 stars. While shoppers on Amazon agree there’s definitely a learning curve when it comes to balancing and maneuvering in these Electric Roller Skates, customers still highly recommend them and say they are super fun to use.

Sure, these Hovershoes are great for traveling, but lots of people also say they’re just as enjoyable to use around the house or in your backyard. If you want to find out what all the hype is about, order a pair for yourself on Amazon now while they’re still in stock.
