Read on for some helpful Do’s and Don’ts to get the most out of your new kicks.

DO – Mix-and-match your LED lights on each foot. There are 7 individual colour options to choose from, with an 8th option of the 7 individual colours alternating on a loop.

DO – Literally light-up your signature breakdancing move. The LEDs have a battery life of approx. 6 hours once fully-charged, so that’s plenty of time to steal the show.

DON’T – Get carried away and dance in the rain. The trainers cannot be worn in wet environments or other extreme conditions.

“Ah, what a nice day; I’ll pop on my silver iridescent Wize & Ope Pop LED trainers” – @thealmondeyes_ knows the score.

DO – Casually switch on your light-up soles in front of your adorning fans. *flips on responsible cap* But please also keep in mind that turning ON/OFF in excess will reduce the power of the battery.

DON’T – Charge your LED soles through mains power. Instead; use the USB cable supplied and connect to a laptop.
