By Andrew Liszewski on at

These days, a set of velcro straps across the top of your kicks just isn't enough to impress your shoe-freak friends. To guarantee you're the envy of everyone on your street forget about dropping hundreds on the latest pair of Nikes—instead, strap a pair of these Light Kicks LED strips to your trainers.

Powered by six AAA batteries, they each feature a series of LEDs that can be tweaked to one of sixteen different colours using an included infrared remote. That's right, you don't even have to bend over to perfectly match your shoes to your outfit.

But the LED strips aren't only about colour coordination. You can also activate one of five different motion-activated light shows, including flashing effects and fading colours. At $40 (about £25) they're a cheap way to upgrade any pair of shoes in your closet, and the best part is that money isn't going to line the pockets of some already obscenely rich celebrity endorser.
