Nice sandals build from Caitlinsdad on Instructables.
It’s a computing platform – and off world platform shoes. Make some unique shoes to show off at Harajuku and tell everyone this is the latest from Akihabara… well, parts from Adafruit.
This would be a fun project to replicate since Firewalker LED sneakers are canon in the neopixel universe.
Use of small form factor microcontrollers like the Adafruit FLORA or Gemma/Trinket are great for this light up wearable tech application.
Note that this is a “prototype” that you can improve on. Just throwing out ideas for you here.
(Sorry, no soundtrack, synthesize your own Vangelis-y analog moody atmospheric sounds. Left foot and right foot are not synchronized.)

Adafruit NeoPixel Digital RGB LED Strip – White 60 LED – WHITE: You thought it couldn’t get better than our world-famous 32-LED-per-meter Digital LED strip but we will prove you wrong! You wanted twice the LEDs? We got it (well, its 1.875 times as many but that’s within a margin of error). You wanted thinner strips? Now only 12.5 mm wide, 10 mm if you remove the strip from the casing. You wanted less noticable strip color – this strip has white-colored flex PCB, which will be less visible against white-painted walls. This is the strip with white flex PCB, its identical to the black 60 LED/meter except it has a different color mask on the flex strip. Read more.
FLORA – Wearable electronic platform: Arduino-compatible – v2: FLORA is Adafruit’s fully-featured wearable electronics platform. It’s a round, sewable, Arduino-compatible microcontroller designed to empower amazing wearables projects. Read more.
