MJ's patented leaning shoes

Posted by Nancy G. Janiola at Tuesday, June 30, 2009
Here's to continue the Michael Jackson's fever. Yesterday, I was spending the whole morning watching videos of his live performances in YouTube. Since I was never really a big fan, a curiosity from out of nowhere suddenly bump into my head as to how does MJ and his dance troupe do that deceptive move of leaning 45 degree forward in the song "Smooth Criminal".

A US patent number 5255452 filed in 1992 explains how they made what our naked eyes believed impossible possible. The shoes was invented by the legend himself and two others.

Watch them do the move in this video.



With or without stage tricks, Michael still has the most exceptional talent in both singing and dancing... well for me at least.
