How to make LED sneakers – Adafruit Wearables

Light up your stride! Mod a pair of high-tops with NeoPixel strip and FLORA, Adafruit’s wearable electronics platform. These sneakers use a velostat step sensor in the heel to trigger firey animations as you walk!

This project involves sewing and soldering! We recommend you read the Getting Started with FLORA guide before beginning this project.
