Light-up sneakers are a perfect addition to any costume, party-going ensemble or just your daily outfit if you’re feeling bold. The styles on our list unisex, rechargeable and feature lights that can be switched on and off for versatile wear. Whether you’re headed to the club or to a rooftop event, you’ll bound to glow in these pairs.
1. Sanyes Charging Light Up Shoes
These low-top faux leather sneakers feature a lace-up front, coming in four unique colorways.
Pros: Set atop a platform sole, the midsole glows up with LED lights thanks to a hidden switch in the inside of the tongue. They are USB chargeable and offer multiple different combinations of lights from solid colors to rainbow flashes.
Cons: To turn these off or to go back to a setting, you have to click through the other settings — there is no back button.
2. LeoVera LED Shoes
Stay cool in these sock-style knit sneakers from LeoVera.
Pros: The smooth uppers of these shoes offer a comfy, barely-there feel; the bottom lights up thanks to a chargeable port in the inner part of the shoe. These also offer long-lasting light, as one charge can last up to 10 hours.
Cons: It takes almost four hours to charge completely.
3. Voovix Light Up Shoes
