From Glowing Electric Sneakers to Luminescent Lifestyle Kicks

 - Jul 11, 2012
Glow-in-the-dark footwear will allow you to stand out from your friends and light up any party. These awesome kicks range from flashing light footwear to glowing shoecessories and luminescent kicks for the basketball court.

For something to be glow-in-the-dark it is called a photo-luminescence, and it is the release of light from a molecule that has electromagnetic energy. The study of photo-luminescence began in 1602 when Bolognian Stones were found by Vincenzo Casciarolo. These phosphorescence materials are popular for glow sticks, ropes, bracelets and can often be seen at raves.

These glow-in-the-dark shoes are all the rage in the 21st century, and you will be able to brighten up every room in your house while wearing a pair of these kicks. Whether you are going for a late night run, to a party or school, these shoes are perfect.
