Ladies and gents – LED or otherwise known as “light up” shoes. Maybe you’ve heard of them, or especially seen these sneakers around. They are everywhere! Usually, they are attached to the feet of kids as they run by you, lights flashing, with different colors moving in different patterns, with kids having a fun time running around with a dazzling light display attached to their feet.
This usually causes adults who aren’t into the whole LED kids shoe scene will say something like “When did THOSE type of shoes come out?” Well, they’re a growing trend and kids especially love them! They’re not expensive either, nor are they extremely high tech by any means. That said, some are USB compatible and remote controlled. You could even call these types of shoes a fad, although they are starting to outgrow that term as well. I think they’re here to stay, folks! They’re just way too entertaining!
The LED kids light up shoes we are reviewing today are the best of the bunch, and you’ll soon see why. Let’s get started!
Right in the middle of the price point for our Led light up shoe collection, are these comfy looking pair by manufacturer Qiucdzi.
These are made from a knitted fabric and have non slip rubber soles.
Out of our selection, these are the only style that don’t come in the smaller sizes for toddlers and smaller children.
We actually think that these sneakers would be great for a pre teen or a teenager, who still wants the excitement of light up sneakers (and frankly, who is ever too old for some of that?) but mature enough to not want to look like Liberace either.
Because they are squarely aimed at the older kid, these are a simple lace up design, which doesn’t feature a Velcro strap.
Like all the LEDs in our roundup, these have seven colors and four different flashing options.
The manufacturers promise that your kids feet will not sweat to death and stink the place out, due to the easy-breathe knit fabric that has been used.
Just as well, because, like all LED shoes, these are not particularly easy to clean – although they can be cleaned, just not got wet.
All in all though, these are our top pick for the older kids who still want to light up the world as they walk by this summer!
If all you are looking for in a toddler or little kids shoe is bags of cute, then you have made the right choice.
Out of all our selection here, these are definitely the most glitzy!
Available in all metallic colors, we think that these actually look like they have been made from leather, at the very least, they are so flash!
And of course, these shoes do flash as well.
Just like the others in our range, these have seven solid color options – green, red, purple, blue, light blue and light green. Then there are the four different flashing “options” too!
We mustn’t forget the remote control that comes with these shoes, giving them that extra bit of fun factor, which your kids will adore.
The three color options which these come in are a shimmering gold, shining silver and metallic pink.
The manufacturer states that these are unisex – and we see no reason why not either – but there are some customers out there who feel that these cater a little more for girls than boys. But you can make your own mind up!
Either way, these little things are totally fabulous and if you are looking for the most bling option possible, then these are it!
Out of all our options for LED shoes, we think these are the ones which convince us the most that these are leather – even though they are not!
Made from a PU leather (ie a synthetic material) these have some of the most striking colors and boldest designs of our round up.
These also have small holes for ventilation on them, hopefully eroding any chances of the dreaded sweaty sneaker sock syndrome that all parents shun.
Even without the LEDs a-flashing, the bold choice of colors should ensure that your kids receive attention wearing these.
Also available with a remote control, these shoes are nothing but pure fun.
Maybe you demand a bit more from your light up LED kids shoes than that they simply, er, light up.
Perhaps you want a bit more fashion with your fun? In which case, step forward our last pair of shoes in the LED category.
These are the Kids High Top Sneakers by manufacturer Cengyoo and these are pure style from beginning to end.
Choose between the fabulous stars and stripes design or the absolutely adorable winged shoes, which will make your little one look like the messenger to the gods.
These go right from a toddler size up to big kids, so there is no need for anyone to miss out, whatever their age and we think that unlike some of the shoes in our range, these cater adequately for boys as well as girls.
The only dilemma you face is being able to choose just one pair, because they are so cute!
