A little before Game Boys and Pokémon cards took over elementary school classrooms, there were light-up sneakers.
You know, those insanely obnoxious, kind of cool (and clunky) shoes with the multi-colored, flashing lights embedded into the sole. Everyone wanted them, and if you didn't have them, you probably weren't loved.
Regardless, there's good news. If you used to have a pair, there's a big chance you wouldn't pass up the opportunity to wear them in adulthood.
And if you've never had a pair because your parents are jerks, you can buy your own now -- because light-up shoes are back, and they're for adults!
Remember these shoes when you were a little kid? Brings back memories, huh?
Since their disappearance, people have been trying to recreate them in makeshift ways.
But guess what? They're back now -- for adults!
The news broke when Sam Smith posted the following Instagram video:
It didn't take long before people caught wind, and now the question remains: where does one purchase a pair of light-up shoes?!
The good news is, there are sites dedicated to reintroducing light-up shoes to the adult fashion scene -- like Evolved Footwear.
They come in men's and women's sizes and are priced around $490 at Simulation Shoe.
The cool part? You can charge these shoes up using a USB cord. This pair is going for $50 on Ali Express.
They must be pretty trendy these days if fashion bloggers are wearing them.
Just like everything else in this world, there are basic ones and then there are $300 pairs like the Orphe.
If you don't want to spend your hard-earned money on light up shoes, make your own!
