               Lace -N- LIghts

It all began with a simple idea. Sitting around one night 4 friends had just returned from a Glow Party, when one noticed that another had taken glow stick and used them on his shoes. As cool as they were, glow sticks only last a few hours then die out. This is when the idea for using LED lights was thought of and a few weeks later the first prototypes were made.

Lace- N- Lights are shoelaces but not normal ones, because they  light up and flash! They are durable, waterproof, washable, and suitable for almost all shoes with shoelaces, such as board shoes, roller skates, roller blades, ice skates, etc.
Ultra bright and eye-catching they let you stand out at party's, bars, night clubs, anywhere it is dark. They come in a variety of colors and each pair has 3 settings you can choose from, steady (lights stay on), flash (slow or fast ). All are battery operated 1 x 3V CR2016 button cell battery for each control box (2 batteries included) and last for around 60 hours. One size fits all.

We are here on Kickstarter to help us raise money for the cost needed for materials, packaging, shipping and the cost of manufacturing them. We have found our manufacture to make them, but to keep cost down quantity matters. So with the help of your donations we can take our first STEPS to bringing Lace- N- Lights to the public. Anything helps!

How to Use:
Install 1x 3V CR2016 button cell battery into each control box.
Lace up your shoes with these 2 shoelaces.
Insert the top of each lace into the 2 holes of the control box, switch the lock to "lock"
mode.
Push the white button in turn to control the lights: on/flash/strobe/off.

YOUR HELP:

FAQ

  • Our laces are approximately 82cm. If you look at the picture, at the end of your shoe you form two loops with the 2 ends of the lace. After forming your loops, you insert the ends into 2 small holes in the battery compartment. The loops are then locked into the holes by sliding a switch. So, to answer your question you have 2 options, the first being if you have a lot of the lace left at the end, then the bigger the loops will be. If you don't like the look of the big loops then you can cut the laces leaving enough to still loop them into the battery compartment, but now you have smaller loops at the end. If you choose to cut them to size don't worry, it will not effect the lighting of the lace. I hope this helped answer your question, but in case your still worried, I have 3 kids ages 5, 8, and 11 who all have lace n lights on their shoes and they love them.
