My father altered these shoes for my fiancé.  It's so nice when the boys get along.  They're men's dress shoes that light up when he walks.  Also, the shoes were worn by Chris O'Donnell in the movie Sisters (we bought them at a studio yard sale).



The lights actually only light up one at a time; I photoshopped them so they are all on.

My Pop has a great tutorial on his site if anyone's interested.

So cool! I've long been envious of the little kids who get to wear those.

Are you kidding?!

He's making me some, as soon as I can find an appropriate pair of pumps.  Then my fiancé and I can wear them ballroom dancing!

Those are incredible! My mom has been wanting a pair of light up shoes forever, now I can make her steel toed work shoes nice and flashy.

BTW your dad's tutorial is hilarious! I love what he said about kids not appreciating them and then snagging their tv antena.

Here's another picture of my dad, just in case you were curious.



He's not really a forest ranger, he just has interesting fashion sense.


And yes, that is his only facial expression.
