A Major Upgrade From the Days of LA Gear

Surely I’m not the only one to feel a twinge of nostalgia (and/or jealousy) when I see little kids wearing shoes that light up. Thankfully, shoe designer Edmundo Castillo has created the adult-version: a light-up strappy wedge heel. Teaming up with the firm responsible for the costumes in the newest TRON film, Castillo’s design pays homage to the blockbuster. Castillo claims the shoe is “completely functional”; recharging the shoe is as easy as plugging in an adapter to the heel of the shoe, and the shoe can be switched to a blinking mode if desired.

For those of us taking our TRON costume to the next level, the heels will be available at select Saks Fifth Avenue locations for $1,650.
