Flashy’s is about to light up the footwear world. The brand’s collection of lighted footwear for men, women and kids features a patented LED technology that keeps a row of colorful lights flashing around the outsole.
The lights can be turned on and off with a built-in switch and continuously flash for up to five hours. For additional power, the sneakers can then be plugged into a USB port, where a built-in battery can be recharged.
According to company founder Avi Dayan, the shoes feature a choice of lights in seven colors, with both flash and stroke effects available.
While lighted footwear has traditionally had broaden appeal in the kids’ market, Flashy’s can be a fun footnote on a dance floor, or even a safety feature while walking home in the dark.
