50 Days of Kenyan Kids Fashion- Day 21
If you think you have the funkiest accessories in your kid’s closet, think again. Unless this cool pair of LED shoes features in your kids’ collection, then you my friend might as well get back to locking your landline with a padlock! The LED sneakers light up in different colors-blue, green, violet, pink, red and white. You can opt to have one color on at a given time or have different colors continuously flashing in quick succession depending with the setting you choose.
I decided to go for a laid back look and styled the shoes with a pair of black and mustard sweats which would be perfect for a Saturday night movie date. Just before the cameras rolled, to everyone’s amazement, Xena grabbed the photographer’s hat and placed it on her head facing backwards instantly elevating her look into a street/hiphop one! What’s more, while I was busy directing her on how to pose, she totally ignored me and attempted to do the moonwalk balancing on the front tips of her sneakers for an unbelievably long time! I guess the ballet classes are finally paying off but I also think someone has been watching to many music videos.
The LED shoes trend has really caught on, with celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Ellie Goulding, Jason Derulo and Justin Bieber spotting them and looking incredibly spectacular in them! I am seriously on a quest to find myself a pair to match my daughter’s, so if anyone knows where I can get size 5 locally, please point me in that direction.
And if you are worried about fighting over your phone charger with your toddler, worry no more as the shoes come with a USB cable for charging them. You can get the LED sneakers and sweats in different colors from Happy Baby Centre. Happy shopping!
Love, Joy & Xena.

The graffiti shoot! It has such bad memories because Xena was in such an awful mood that day only for her to get admitted in hospital with pneumonia a few days later 🙁

Xena is just too cool, kids start early these days!

Yes Haven Decor are in a league of their own. I always have to remind myself to stop gawking at the furniture whenever I am there.
..I’m loving the whole outfit..dazzlingly gorgeous.. and Xena’s poses are totally out of this world hehe.. gosh isn’t she just super amazingly awesome!..
I just realised the shoots that I direct the least and let her be evoke the most positive reactions. I guess she is almost ready to take over the blog! Thanks Fridah.
Is there anything that Xena cannot rock???
She reminds me of Aaliyah in these photos, so chilled, laid back, yet glamorous and all so diva!
I must say I did not like the shoes before, but now you got me rethinking them.
p.s: Still waiting on the like button for the site.
This girl rocks anything indeed. I cannot wait to pair the LED sneakers with a skater skirt! Seems like you plan on campaigning for the like button until it is implemented 🙂 Gotta do something about it.
I want me a pair too!Xena is a natural and she sure is pretty flexible.I am in love with the look
At somepoint we wished we did a video recording of the moves she made that day. She took flexibility to a whole new level. Thanks Livy.
