Lumens are smart shoes that can be controlled and customized via your phone.
Lumens are smart shoes that can be controlled and customized via your phone. The shoe is made out of a triangular silicon mould with multiple backlit LED panels that the user can customize based on their mood or style of the day. Lumens also give important notifications to the user via visual cues and haptic feedback provided by motors in the sole. These shoes are meant to be shown off but they also help you to stay active. Remaining inactive gradually fades the shoe over time and reduces its 'show-off' factor. So to keep the shoe happy, the user must remain active through the day.
