LA GEAR LIGHTS

I don’t care what anybody thinks but nothing says swag like a pair of LA Gear Lights!  Back in the day (1992 that is) a pair of kids LA Lights would set you back 50 beans from Footlocker.

“Light Gear” CrossRunner shoes had built-in red LED lights in the heels so that when your foot hit the ground they would light up.

By 1993 the footwear’s popularity began to dwindle with the company restricting access to the shoes in an attempt to gain more upscale clientele. However, in doing so the company was so desperate to sell the remaining inventory that LA Gear shoes began showing up at flea markets, swap meets and supermarkets.
