Battery Powered Booties

Saw some roadies this weekend with them on. I didn't even know they existed.

Does anyone know where to grab a pair or had any experience with them?

Do they make your feet go around faster?

Are you sure they were battery powered booties? They could be this:

I've got them and they work great up here in the frozen northland.
