For anyone who has ever looked at their snowboard boots and thought, "These need some lights," Nike has just made your day. The company unveiled a new pair of LunarENDOR Quickstrike snowboard boots yesterday that feature a light-up swoosh. Hit the power button at the top of the boot, and 30 LED lights turn on to give you some serious radiance on the halfpipe.
But there's more to these boots than the lightshow. Their made with Nike Lunarlon foam, which gives you a softer and more responsive ride while taking some to the impact on landing. You can also choose one of three levels of stiffness, and the boot's liner and shell are designed to attract and store heat.
Take a closer look at these snowboard boots from the future:
And here's a video of the boots in action:
