These ARE the droids you’re looking for! Forget protocol, droid, and mash up everyone’s favorite astromech with mid-heels and create the greatest footwear the Empire has ever seen. These R2D2 shoes are the hottest thing this side of Tatooine and they’re cooler than Hoth.
The wide heel of these shoes was removed and replaced with a steel bolt to provide strength and support, but at a fraction of the size. An R2D2 toy covers the heel bolt, and the toes have been decorated with lenses, blue accents, and a blinking red LED to let everyone know just how this droid rolls.
Whether you’re dashing to Tosche Station for power converters or just going to the store, these R2D2 heels are sure to give you geek cred faster than you can shut down all the trash compactors on the detention level.

It’s never too early to take a look at holiday footwear, so in accordance, here we have imagery of two such takes of the Air Max 1 Premium. The upcoming editions note rather bright colorways, especially for the fall and winter months. Nonetheless, so far so good, and keep it locked to Complex for coinciding release info and more from Nike’s Holiday 2012.

Nike also seized on the moment with the release of their London edition of the LunarGlide+3 City Series, which is part of a larger collection of nine shoes highlighting the world’s major marathons.
Top Nike graphic designer, Mark Ward, helped with this special edition sneaker, whose design was inspired by the runners themselves pushing their limits down some of the world’s most famous city streets.
This LunarGlide’s also features the great cushioning and stability you expect from Nike within an overall flexible and breathable upper and Dynamic sole wedges topped off with a fun insole graphic.
