Not Just for Kids: Why Light Up Shoes Are the Perfect Birthday Gift for the Young-At-Heart

Not Just for Kids: Why Light Up Shoes Are the Perfect Birthday Gift for the Young-At-Heart


We recently stumbled across this awesome video of a grandfather’s ecstatic reaction to receiving light-up shoes as a birthday gift. This gentleman thought light-up shoes only came in kid sizes, so you can imagine his surprise when he received a pair of his very own. He was thrilled to discover that he could join in on the fun too, and rightfully so!

Light-up shoes aren’t just a fashion statement; they’re a reminder that it’s the simple things in life that make us happy. And this is why light-up shoes are the perfect birthday gift for anyone and everyone you want to celebrate. If you’re looking for unique birthday gift ideas, then you’ve come to the right place!

For Everyday Wear

If you’re new to light-up shoes, you might want to ease into the trend and start off with a classic design that you can wear anywhere. The simplicity of our Men’s Luna design is versatile enough for everyday wear, but gets spiced up with fun and funky colors when you want them. They’re the perfect birthday gift for anyone who’s new to the exciting world of light-up shoes!

A Fun 16th Birthday Gift Idea

Gift shopping for a teenager can feel nearly impossible, especially if you’re not up on the trends that teens are into these days. Well, we’re here to tell you that teens love the amazing effects and eye-catching designs of high-tech light-up shoes, so consider this for your next 16th birthday gift idea.

Depending on your teen’s shoe size, check out the Big Kids Orion in white or the Super Nova Women’s in white. These striking white styles are favorites of teens who want to coordinate their outfits and really make the light-up soles stand out. Your newly-licensed 16-year-old will need a sturdy pair of shoes to drive that new car soon anyway, right?

Gifts for Dancers

Whether it’s dancing on stage, on the street, or just at home, dancers need a special way to highlight their fancy footwork. Light-up shoes are perfect birthday gifts for dancers who want to show off their steps and stand out in the crowd.

For men who want to strut their stuff on the dance floor, we love the Metallic Super Nova in gold. And for women, we’re big fans of the Women’s Bowie with metallic studs that really make you sparkle and shine.

Birthday Ideas for Sports Fans

Who says that athletic shoes have to be boring?

Our Game Day Super Nova style in maroon and white comes with a remote control and a sporty look that’ll take your fashion game to the next level. These are a great idea for the sports lover in your life or anyone who lives life in trendy workout wear.

A Must for New York Winters

HoverKicks is a NYC based company with our headquarters in midtown Manhattan, so it should come as no surprise that we take winter weather into account with our footwear designs. Warm and comfy footwear just got a lot more interesting with our Women’s HoverBoots.

Ladies can choose classic black, brown, gray, or even pink and brave the elements with impeccable style. HoverKicks are also water resistant on the outside of the shoe and can withstand small amounts of rain or snow.

 For the Little Ones You Love

Let’s face it, kids aren’t always excited to open birthday gifts of clothes and shoes. But if those shoes light up, so will their eyes and their smiles.

The HoverKick Kids 2-Tone Super Pegasus is a great pick for both little and big kids because they have a unique “space theme” that’s super-fun and ultra-cool. They’ll be the talk of the playground come recess time and have a blast showing them off to all their friends.

Stand Out with HoverKicks!

What makes HoverKicks stand out among other light-up shoe brands is that we light up the whole sole, not just the heel. Our footwear designs have 7 LED static color options, 1 LED strobe setting, and 2 LED color changing options. And better yet, they’re USB-rechargeable!

Unique birthday gift ideas don’t get much better than this – for kids, grandpas, and everyone in between. And with HoverKicks on your radar, gift shopping just got a whole lot easier!
