Alas, these Tron shoes don't actually glow

While the picture above certainly makes it look like Adidas’s Tron-themed sneakers will glow like crazy, that’s not actually the case. It turns out the glowy bits are “glow in the dark stitch detailing and reflective TRON disk screenprints” probably made from reflector material. In their defense, that stuff can get pretty bright in the right environment, and it lasts a long time: I have some Pumas from 2001 that still shine.

There are no more details right now, but if they’re anything like the Star Wars line, they’ll be limited and rather expensive.
