Uses some kind of thermo-electric generator, i.e. heat of your feet. 
Boots have their own battery, so it slowly charges that battery, and 
then later you can plug your cell phone or iPod into your boots to get 
the charge.  Nifty, and the model is pretty hot too :-)

I thought reading it initially that they were using "wheelies": wheels 
inside shoes/boots, with generators on them.  But no, these are 
"wellies", apparently some kind of British rubber boots ("Wellington 
boots") that are super popular for outdoor festivals right now.
