The perfect running shoe?

Jogging down a moving walkway at an airport I never fail to wish that all running surfaces would be this comfortable. This guy designed that feel in a shoe.

<quote> Late one night in August 1997, 54-year-old inventor Lenn Rockford Hann placed two bottles of Gatorade near Concourse F of Chicago O’Hare International Airport, unlaced his sneakers, removed his socks, then dodged curious maintenance workers for two hours while running 13.1 miles on the walkways. His pace surprised him. He was convinced the springy, resilient surface was almost perfect. “My legs felt amazing,” says Hann, a marathoner. “I’ve been chasing a shoe that feels that good ever since.” </quote>
How hard is it for an independent inventor to sell an idea to a multinational? Try running a mile in Lenn Hann's shoes
