Around 5 months ago, I posted about how I felt that the Dremel tool brand is due for something new.
Well, they’ve got something new. Is it a new rotary tool? Rotary tool attachments or accessories? CNC router machine? More cordless power tools for their 12V and 20V Max lines?
To start off, Dremel has a new sneaker collab.
As I understand it, the mschf Gobstomper is a type of sneaker where users can use a Dremel or other rotary tool to customize the rubber soles.
The collaborative sneaker features Dremel colors and has 4-layer construction that reveals a unique design as the shoe wears down.
As with other Gobstomper sneakers, users can “distress the shoes by hand” using a Dremel tool, which is included in the package.
The kit, which sold for $350 each, came with a pair of shoes, rotary tool, a couple of accessories, and a case to hold it all.
I guess that’s pretty cool – not for me, but I can see the appeal.
Dash any thoughts about getting one – they were all sold off via a lottery system.
There’s also the Dremel Versa cordless cleaning tool, which now features Scrub Daddy cleaning pads.
The kit – priced at $50 right now – comes with an assortment of 5 different Scrub Daddy cleaning pads, plus a Velcro backer pad, splash guard, and USB charging cable.
Objectively speaking, these are smart collaborations. They don’t do much for someone like me, but I can see why Dremel would do this.
