How To Care For Your Flashez
Flashez requires a little extra love and care compared to standard shoes, but it’s totally worth it if you love to dance, party, stand out, or just walk the dog a little safer at night. It’s okay to wear your Flashez on days with a little light rain or snow but pull on some rainboots or flip flops instead for torrential downpour days or water rides at the amusement park. This is because the batteries inside the shoes need to stay dry to keep working well.
Also, avoid leaving your Flashez in extreme heat conditions, like the boot of a car on a summer day. Very high heat can impact your shoes’ batteries and cause them not to light up anymore.
Since you’ll likely be wearing your new Flashez all the time now, they’re bound to get dirty over time. Unlike your old favourite sneakers that you used to toss in the washing machine, remember that Flashez don’t like a lot of water. So instead, wash them with a damp washcloth, mild soap, and warm water. Simplicity is best for keeping your Flashez looking shiny and new for years to come.
How To Charge Your Flashez
Conveniently, all Flashez come with a USB cable that allows you to charge both shoes at the same time. To charge them, simply connect the cable to the charger port in each shoe. You’ll find the charger port located inside the shoe, at the ankle and above the laces. You can plug the other end of the cable into a standard wall adapter and pop that into a wall outlet. You’ll know that your Flashez are charging successfully when you see red lights flashing along the soles of the shoes while plugged in.
It only takes about 2-3 hours to fully charge your Flashez, but they’ll actually charge faster if you turn them off before plugging them in. Once charged, pull them on, lace them up, and enjoy up to six hours of LED-lit feet! You should also know that the battery life may be affected by the type of setting that your shoes are currently set to. For example, brighter colours tend to use up more battery power. To turn the lights on, press directly below the charging port. You’ll press and hold the same button until the lights go out to turn them off.
