Remote Control LED Shoes Make You The Light Show, Look Awesome
By Elizabeth Fish
When you’re planning to hit up the clubs or attend a party, you want to make sure you are looking your absolute best. As a geek, there are many ways to make an impression beyond the usual apparel–and we’re not just talking about a bringing along portable LED dance floor either.
Female geeks, here’s a pair of shoes you’ll never regret buying: vintage Steampunk LED Heels. When sat amongst your shoe collection, these wedge heels will just look like a pair of nice lace shoes. However, once you get to your party destination, switch them on and you will become the light show of the dance floor.
The high heels are by Tysen and Kristen, who manage The Ratchet and Cog Esty store. Tysen’s love of LED technology enticed him to help Kristen design the footwear, which require a remote to turn on and change the color or effect. What’s most intruging about these is that the lace trimming and silver thread don’t just serve as extra detailing, but also help power the LEDs, which run along the heel (they also help hide all the other wires!).
There are more than 16 LED colors to pick from, in addition to the five different actions–from a strobe effect, to a fade into the various colors. Brightness of each color can also be adjusted, depending how much you want to stand out as you dance.
The heels will set you back $180, but come with their own charger and rechargble batteries. Plus, there is only pair available, so you’re going to be one colorful individual. Check out the video below demonstrating the jeweled high heels, or vist the pair’s Etsy page for more photos and LED attire.
