I am back with many modifications from my previous LED Sneakers project. I basically completely scrapped it. I found that NeoPixels were much easier to use than regular RGB LED strips and offered a lot of possibilities with its individually addressable LEDs.
This project is based off of Clayton Richter's super awesome Luminous Lowtops project. This Instructable was just my approach. Check out his work! On his page he as excellent modifications to the project I'm sure that many of you will be interested in.
