Light-up sneakers are back—and this time, they’re for grown-ups
Nostalgia for the ’90s knows no bounds. Case in point: POP Shoes’ new collection of light-up sneakers—which backup performers for both Justin Bieber and pop supergroup DNCE are currently wearing on tour—are now yours for the buying.
POP Shoes makes high- and low-top sneakers equipped with LED lights that are controlled by an on/off switch on the tongue of the shoe. The lights are in the sole, made from thermoplastic rubber—don’t submerge your feet in water because that may ruin the equipment.
POP Shoes come in several colours, offer three light-up settings (fast flash, slow flash, and continuous lights), and recharge via USB—yes, you can plug your shoes into your computer. Welcome to the future.
Right now, the shoes are only available online in Canada (plus at NEON Clothing in Montreal). They retail for $144 to $164, depending on style.
