BL Lacer / Luminescent running shoes

iF concept design award

The luminous jogging shoe produces its own energy. This way it doesn’t need any batteries and provides a non-polluting and ecological-friendly solution. While running the athlete applies pressure on the shoe. This pressure is transformed into energy that will light up the shoe. This is a technical advantage compared to regular used reflectors, which increases the safety standard of the athlete, also. Through the active light source the jogger is visible to the car driver before reflectors can react to the glaring car headlamps. The driver can react faster and the safety of the jogger is enhanced. The jury: a product that stands for coolness and concupiscence.
