You're right. I am totally jealous. Those are cool.

Jeff said...

dude, those rock!

(if you're like four and want to cause seizures)

;)

jd said...

Ha! I can't believe only one works!

teri said...

you are such a dork!

they are cute though but without the blinking lights.

Erin said...

That is too funny. I love that only one has working lights.

nadia said...

hahahha cute.

Ortizzle said...

Cute. Too bad the left foot turn signal isn't working.

Kami said...

Oh.

Wow.

Let me talk to Lauren.

Lauren, tell me you guys have the receipt.

Charlotte in Pa said...

You need to take those back immediately. Clearly you need both shoes in working order. Then you should wait until Lauren's in bed one night with the lights off and come in wearing the shoes... and only the shoes. She might have a new appreciation for them!

No_Newz said...

Yeah, maybe if both worked I'd be jealous, whatever, dude!
Hey, when those shoes first came out there was this guy who robbed a store. He was wearing those and ran into the woods. He thought he was hiding but his shoes just lit the way for the cops to find him. What a loser! Um, Bill... you didn't get those shoes at a prison sale did ya? :P

Laura said...

tell me you only wear these to mow the lawn...

Sharpie said...

You need to take them back - get two that work.

I mean I can appreciate them as I have a pair of outdoor old-school skates that light up - which SCREAMS dork - but if only one lit up it would just be sad.

soozieq said...

Jealous of what? The shoes or of Lauren having such a "cool" husband?

*snort*

BUWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

;-)

Julie said...

I can't believe Lauren lets you out of the house in those. You're like a walking episode of COPS! Bad boys bad boys whatcha gonna do when Bill comes for you?

Effie said...

HI William!!

Totally jealous...

Queen Bee said...

Don't listen to them, William, the coolest part is that only one lights up ;)

Jim said...

Bill jut FYI something not to be jealous about, I'd wear the shoes too...
When ill health forced Andre to largely quit wrestling in the late ‘80s, he accepted the role of Fezzik in Rob Reiner’s movie The Princess Bride. Everyone on the set loved the big man, with the possible exception of Reiner himself. Ever the sociable fellow, he kept fellow cast members Mandy Patinkin and Carey Elwes out night after night, drinking and otherwise goofing around. The actors were incapable of matching Andre’s intake, but certainly gave it a serious try. As a result, they often showed up on set still loaded or suffering from the sort of hangovers that make death seem a pleasant alternative. Reiner tried to get Andre to leave the actors alone, but Andre could only be Andre, and the other cast members continued to pay the price.

The shooting schedule required Andre to be in England for about a month. When his part wrapped, Andre checked out of his suite at the Hyatt in London and flew back to his ranch in North Carolina. His bar bill for the month-long stay?

Just a shade over $40,000.

TBG said...

Oh my goodness you are totally the man wearing those shoes out!

platypus said...

I am very jealous of you I can't speak! I always wanted a pair of trainers that lit up but they didn't do my size. I was about 10 but maybe I'll check them out. Them and the bunny slippers I always wanted...

kimmyk said...

I'd like to see you tap dance in your shoes.

Um...what's Jim talking about?

susie said...

Um... You didn't return them?

NoDramas said...

You get the coolest stuff in the USA. We dont have lightup shoes for anyone over 5 here.
Will you send me some??

momo9 said...

William, you must return them! They are a pair! Both should light! You're only a Dork if you don't take them back. They are only cool if both light!

Sarah said...

I just burned my dinner cause I can't stop watching/laughing.

eclectic said...

From the still picture at the beginning, I really thought those were kid shoes. And then you touched them, and it became obvious that they are in fact, adult-sized. NO -- THAT's IT!!!!! They're intended to be worn by baby giants, NOT adult humans. Bill, take them back so some needy giant family can put shoes on their kid.

Steve said...

Those shoes TOTALLY kick ass.

RzDrms said...

i totally would(n't) hit you with my car if i saw you running on the side of the road. i mean, i might possible hit you accidentally because i was laughing so hard at your shoe(s), but other than that, i wouldn't do it on purpose. well, not purposefully, at least.

Brekke said...

Lauren: Hey Bill, whatcha doin'?

Bill: I'm just videoing myself playing with my new shoes so I can post the video on the Internet. I'm making sure to tell the Internets which one is the left shoe and which one is the right.

Lauren: Of course you are, honey.

bbsgirl said...

I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm jealous.....I'm cracking up though. I can't believe you wear those...LOL

sharkey said...

Oh, that is hilarious! I laughed so hard that JP had to come over and see what I was watching.

Too bad you don't have two left feet.

maggie said...

wow
thats unbeliveable
i cant believe you have light up shoes
i NEVER had a pair of light up shoes

Susie said...

Who knew that one flashing shoe could brighten the dreariest day?
(ohlord, you are such a dork)
You must promise to wear those shoes (or at least the right one) if ever we meet. True story:
Jif: I need new running shoes.
Susie: Go to Wal-Mart
Jif: Wal-Mart? For running shoes?
Susie: Yea. Like William's. 'Member, I showed you . . .
Jif: Oh, yea . . . you really think?
Susie: Absolutely.

Never before in my life have I been so thoroughly entertained by men's shoes. I thank you, William.

Stepping Over the Junk said...

When these light up shoes first came out, there was an adult who wore some sneakers like these who robbed a store in Los Angeles and it was nighttime and he went running through some park and the cops were able to just follow the lights...note to self: dont wear light up shoes when running from the law at night

Random and Odd said...

OH crap! Shaun and I just died laughing! We had to watch it twice to get the full impact.

Shaun said, "no wonder you retired them. You were having 747's landing near you!"
