Light up your path with every step you take in the latest glow-in-the-dark heels! The Italian company, renowned for making luxury shoes for women and men, has unveiled the Selene, an exclusively designed high-heel pump that glows in the dark.
Named after the Greek goddess of the moon and star of the night, which appeared after the sunset as the only light in the darkness, the pumps will throw more light on your style sense. Graziano Cuccu, founder, president and chief designer of all Loriblu collections updated Forbes that he was inspired by the dress of Claire Danes by Zac Posen worn during the Met Gala 2016 in New York. To reproduce the same magic on a shoe, the brand designed the Selene.
When in mood to stay out of limelight, the light can be turned off at will through a normal switch located on the insole. Even without light, the shoe is a perfect pump characterized by exceptional design and highest quality materials. The optical fiber is hand-sewn on the shoe through an allover embroidery which is illuminated with a white light through a hidden mini battery. Carefully designed to strike a perfect balance between form, function and fashion, the pumps hide the battery under the sole which can be replaced with ease when exhausted.
Sporting a $3,500 tag, they’re available at select retailers, including San Francisco’s newest luxury shoe boutique, Sentiero at 11 Maiden Lane. While Selene shoes are produced only upon request, Loriblu holds an international patent covering optical fiber applied to the shoes.
