Speaking of Star Wars Shoes…

I walked past the Adidas Store on Queen this morning and the Star Wars Original Collection is indeed in — including the Yoda Deck Shoes which I am conflicted about (love the shoes, hate the Yoda).

These Adidas collection is not the first Star Wars sneaker merchandising deal. That distinction belonged to sensible shoemakers Clarks back in the ’70s. Click on the vintage newspaper ad above to see the C3P0, R2D2 and Darth Vader kicks. They are awesome.
