A video shared to TikTok shows what appears to be Austin Police Department cops wearing light-up Sketcher-type shoes! Have you ever seen police wearing these before? It looks like these light-up shoes might be on the rise for more than just toddlers. I can't decide if it's hilarious, rad, or ridiculous. It's a mix...

The comment section below this video had me dying laughing. Here are some of my favorite reactions from viewers:

"New boot goofin'"

"You're under arrest *stomps light up sketchers*"

"Wee-woo shoes"

"They're not like regular cops, they're *cool* cops."

"Did you ever ask them if they can fun fast in them??"

"If their shoes light up, they're too young for you bro."

"You're under arrest.....for not passing the vibe check"


I can see some practical reasons for having them, I guess. I sort of want a pair now, actually...I mean, you can run faster in those light-up bad boys...ya heard?

I wonder how long it will take before the Lubbock Police Department gets its hands on some fancy new footwear. Is this going to become a thing everywhere? What a time to be alive, dude. 2023 is wild AF.

What do you think about the shoes? I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to email me at Chrissy.Covington@townsquaremedia.com or comment below this article wherever you may see it. Are these silly or dope?
