'Tron' inspired light-up shoes
Saturday 18 December 2010
Footwear designer Edmundo Castillo has produced a pair of LED light-up sandals to pay homage to the latest Hollywood blockbuster "Tron: The Legacy," which was released Friday.
Made from the same electroluminescent material used for the costumes in the film, the "Light Sandals" will be sold at Saks Fifth Avenue for $1,650 (1,238 euros) from February 1. The Puerto Rican designer is a footwear industry veteran and formerly worked for the venerable Italian brand Sergio Rossi.
The Walt Disney-produced sci-fi film is a sequel to the original 1982 film "Tron." The updated version will include actors Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, Garrett Hedulund, Michael Sheen and Olivia Wilde. In addition to inspiring a funky pair of light-up shoes, "Tron: Legacy" has even inspired a suite in the Ice Hotel in the Swedish town of Jukkasjärvi that is outfitted with futuristic, glow-in-the-dark neon decor. Eyewear company Oakley also produced special 3D glasses to celebrate the release of the film. Rendered with signature Oakley style, the new "Tron" Limited Edition 3D Gascan ($150, or 113 euros) is accented with graphics that salute the cinematic story.
