Nat-2 Sneakers Blingin’ the LEDs #WearableWednesday

Nat-2 has done some pretty impressive sneaker designs including sci-fi inspired After Earth and Transformer models, as well as a Wu-Tang brand. Their latest endeavor is translucent soled sneakers sporting LED strips for 20 different color/blink patterns. We are talking disco jogging, dance anywhere, gym crazy kind of fun. Their new designs will soon be up for grabs at Coilex, their edgy warehouse shoe store.

This Munich design group leaves nothing to chance–every detail is considered down to the laces. Their designs range from playful to progressive, with a love of tech. Considering they’ve been in the shoe business since 1856, it’s kind of like watching Back to the Future. Their work reminds me of Trafo Pop’s awesome bicycle jackets in Berlin, and if the two groups ever get together, they are going to blind people on the street with their illuminated wearables.

It’s nice to know you can buy blinky sneakers, but if you are a maker, you are probably going to want to hack your own pair. So, check out our Firewalker LED Sneaker tutorial. You can use our FLORA microcontrollers and NeoPixel strips to get your sneakers chasing lights around your feet. Send us a video or gif when you are done, because you know we love happy feet dances.
