We got covered sneakers with light up sole a couple of times but most of them are in the development stage or concept phase.
Somehow it slipped our attention that such Illuminated sneakers are out in the wild since last year, made by Jezign a innovative footwear company located in the Washington D.C. area.
Started by Jez Marston a young entrepreneur and founder of Jezign, the first launch was the ‘Night Eagle‘ Basketball sneaker. A cool design that rocks. Based on the first success in selling the Night Eagle, Jezign launched their second model called the ‘Bubble Cloud‘ line in Summer 2007.
The Bubble Cloud features a sole that completely illuminates at the push of a button. The magical light source, which is based on Jezign’s patented technology, is powered from a replaceable battery stored in the shoes tongue.
Jezign used top grade glove leather as basis material for their sneakers to give them maximum flexibility and wearing comfort. A nice touch for a innovative sneaker.
The obvious reason for having light in the shoe sole is safety but I think in the case of the Jezign design with it’s cool look and translucent effect which also highlights the Jezign brand name on the sole it’s definitely for the cool guys out on the street and dance floor.
The Bubble Cloud goes for a very reasonable $ 149.99 available in the color schemes White and White/Royal by finishline.com
Sorry girls, no model available yet for you but this might change soon. We will watch out and report back when Jezign is extending their line of Illuminated Sneakers.
