Adidas Tron EL Shoe

So to continue all the Tron Legacy hype, Disney synced up with Adidas and Oryon Tech to bring you a pair of Tron-inspired Adidas kicks that glow (some Ts included as well). What's interesting about these shoes is that they use a patented EL technology Elastolite that is directly printed on textiles themselves.

Here's the kicker: this stuff is washable. Well sort of. It lasts about 25 wash cycles which is pretty darn cool. The current available colors appear to Green, Blue-Green, Blue & Orange.

Unfortunately this stuff is custom and I doubt you'll be able to get it for your wearable tech prototypes — unless of course you have a suitable budget.

you can check out these shoes at the tron popup shop. a couple of them were on display. i didn't see how much they cost.

i am curious about the shirt/jacket in the picture above. it looks interesting and cool but i don't recall seeing it there.
