Elon Musk's Cybershoes may be all the rage for CYBRTRK fans. A photoshopped picture of Tesla's CEO wearing Cybertruck-inspired shoes hit the internet lately, causing the same buzz as Musk's origami-like electric pick up truck.
Pictures of Elon Musk "wearing" the Cybershoes with a matching graffiti-printed Cyberjacket first surfaced on Reddit. Based on the comments, there seems to be a market for shoes inspired by Musk's Cybertruck.
There were lots of people wondering where they could get a pair of Cybershoes on Reddit and Twitter to wear with their Cybertruck--to complete the look, of course. Sadly, the picture was photoshopped and Cybershoes aren't real. However, the public's interest and thoughts about Cybershoes perfectly mirror their feelings and opinions about Tesla's CYBRTRK.
Elon Musk's Cybertruck was met with reluctance and resistance by some in the pickup truck community. The all-electric pickup truck's unconventional look surprised people and received mixed reviews. Some people immediately loved its origami-like design while others outright dismissed the electric pickup because of its unique exterior.
However, time proved to be the Cybertruck's friend. As the CYBRTK's image spread, more and more people started falling in love with Tesla's all-electric truck, and for different reasons. Some liked that it was different, while others started focusing on the practicality and efficiency of the vehicle. There were also a few who ordered the Cybertruck out of sheer respect for Elon Musk and Tesla for having the guts to release the Cybertruck.
Now, the Cybertruck has found its niche of fans who each have their reasons for supporting Elon Musk's EV truck. Elon Musk hinted at the CYBTRK's growing popularity during the Q4 2019 Earnings Call.
"For the Cybertruck, a few months ago, we revealed obviously we revealed the Cybertruck, and that was -- that went viral, and we tried to build a product that is product superior in every way without any preconceptions of how such should look...
"So it really just from the standpoint of what's the most badass, futuristic, all at personal carrier that kicks ass of any pickup truck basically that's the goal. And we wanted [it] to look like something that just came out of the site [of a] movie set from the future, and the amount has been incredible. I have never seen actually such a level of demand at this -- we've never seen anything like it basically. I think we will make about as many as we can sell for as many years. So...we'll sell as many as we can make, it's going to be pretty nuts," Musk said.
While there is a lot of information about the Cybertruck available to the public, there are still a lot of unanswered questions about it. For example, the size of its battery pack is still unknown, but Tesla could be saving the best for last in that regard. Elon Musk alluded that the CYBRTK could be better than people expect it to be during the latest Earnings Call as well. "So, and I think actually the product is better than people realize even, they don't have enough information to realize just [the] awesomeness of it, it's just great," Musk said.
