The 7 Most Impressive Glow in the Dark Shoes In the Game!

By January 5, 2022Food for thought, Sneaker News

Glow in the Dark Shoes - AIO BotWhen life gets dark, the only thing you can do is get some glow in the dark shoes. It’s the only way we can go through the darkness of this life – so deep. Or sometimes, you just wanna feel like a superhero or a Disney villain with the epic green glow.

In short, color-changing kicks are pretty awesome to own and even more awesome to flex. You can flex these kicks around the clock – day or night! Although we’d all love us some good Yeezy reflective action, glow in the dark is the next best thing.

You see, getting glow in the dark shoes is slightly easier and more attainable than getting a reflective Yeezy. However, if you happen to have a SNEAKER BOT on your side, you can easily have BOTH! It’s just because reflective Yeezys have a sort of charm you can’t get from glow in the dark kicks. And, EVERYBODY knows that. So, copping both glow in the dark shoes or reflective kicks will require some outside help. Click on the button below to find out how!

HONORABLE MENTION

To conclude this list, we gotta mention our all-time favorite glow in the dark shoes. The Jordan 4 Retro KAWS release – COOL GREY – from 2017! The sneaker features glow in the dark icy outsoles revealing the signature KAWS illustrations. It was a limited edition special release with a VERY special retail price of $350! But, with a resale value of $2565, you’ll forget all about the retail.

We should also mention that, although these kicks have special GID features, they don’t require special care. In other words, you won’t need special sneaker cleaning tools or specific requirements for shoe care. All you need is your usual shoe cleaning routine!
