These Light-Up Fiber Optic Heels Aren't Your Childhood L.A. Gears

Utilizing new technologies in advanced textile creation, Castagnacci wove delicate fiber optic materials and LEDs throughout the shoes, creating a work of art that's absolutely otherworldly. To us, they feel like a cross between night-time jungle romp on planet Avatar and a candy-kid rave shoe—which is a mash-up that's cheesy in all the right ways. Now that's what we call an enlightened upgrade from those old-school L.A. Gear Lights Ups! (Yatzer)
