If there’s one thing L.A. Gear is known for that Nike, Reebok and Adidas can’t or won’t dispute are sneakers that light up when hitting the pavement. The La Gear Leap Gear Tech basketball shoe was ok for basketball games but definitely not good if you were trying to get away from someone (or something) at night. They featured full grain leather, a phylon compression molded midsole, nylex lining, rubber outsole and a replaceable cartridge lighting system. Retail was 70 USD and if you can find a set today expect to pay around 125-250.
