“Please don’t let them ACTUALLY light up,” I thought when I read the product name on these shoes. “Please let it just be a NAME, and not an actual description of what they do!” Because, although I know light-up heels are (or were – I don’t really follow these things) popular on children’s shoes, surely that’s where they should stay? Surely on a “grown up” shoe, a light-up heel would just look gimmicky and, dare I say it, tacky: neither of which are words I would usually associate with the Jimmy Choo brand?
People, the heels light up. They’re designed in much the same way as the light-up sneakers mentioned above, so that when your foot hits the ground, the heel will light up. And it’s a yellow heel. With a red sole. And I don’t know… I’ve read a few gushing reviews of these shoes from my fellow bloggers, but I think I’m going to have to be the voice of dissent here and say that this is just way too gimmicky for me to want to spend $2,495 on. I’d make a joke here about them “lighting up your life”, but I’m actually still in shock at having to write the words “Jimmy Choo” and “light-up heels” in the same sentence, so feel free to make up your own jokes there. Oh, and feel free to head over to Saks and buy them, too, if you so desire!
