“The Buried Life” cast in October 2009.
If there’s one thing we have in common with The Buried Life cast, it’s the desire to design a shoe before we die (it’s a stylish bucket list, mmkay?). To bring to life their vision of sneakers that light up, the guys joined forces with Creative Recreation, whose contemporary kicks are favored by hot boys everywhere (e.g., Zac Efron, Taylor Lautner, and yeah, you get the idea). True, our dream shoe design would have featured a 4-inch heel, as well as the ability to repel rain and allow us to gracefully traverse New York City’s pothole-ridden streets, but we gotta admit that these aptly titled “Buried Lights” sneaks are pretty snazzy. The shoes hone in on LED technology, using colorful glowing panels cushioned in black leather for the kind of shoe that sneaker aficionados dream about.

Just one catch: The Buried Life x Creative Recreation collab is a limited-edition run and super exclusive. As in, becoming the next Justin Bieber or winning the lottery wouldn’t bring you a step closer to owning one of the 50 existing pairs, most of which the cast is distributing to friends, family, and charity. You can, however, enter here to win one of four pairs by uploading a photo of what you’d do with your “Buried Lights,” should you be one of the lucky chosen few. The Buried Life cast will even deliver the sneaks to you in person. It’s not quite the same as designing our own shoe, but hey, we’ll take it!
