This right here made us believe in fate and our intuition. Remember the wild guess about a pair of clandestine looking shiny new sneakers we had brought up when discussing the latest adidas Originals “The Street Where Originality Lives” campaign installment featuring adidas Originals ambassadors such as Snoop Dogg, Ciara, DJ Neil Armstrong, David Beckham and Jay Burachel? The sneakers that Jay Burachel was sporting when he picked up the firearm which fell to the floor alongside the alien’s hand (severed by Snoop Dogg and his near-Jedi-like lightsaber techniques), are indeed, after confirmation from adidas Originals, real! The sneakers in the spotlight (though not quite enough in the film!) are rendered off the classic adidas Top Ten Low, and inspired by the movie’s favorite droids, C-3PO and R2-D2. Also, this is the proof that adidas Originals and Star Wars are not quite done with their working relationship as of yet!

Perhaps riding on an interesting burgeoning trend of wearing two different sneakers on each feet (remember Justin Theroux at the Iron Man II premiere?), the new adidas Originals x Star Wars Top Ten Low S.W. pays tribute to C-3PO on the right, and R2-D2 on the left. The tongue tags feature C-3PO and R2-D2′s portraits respectively, and the sneaker uppers are an interesting mix of half gold and half white with silver and blue three-stripes, split right down the vertical middle. As an added thoughtful detail, the sneakers also feature lace jewels engraved with the words “DROIDS”. Set to release in September 2010, these shoes and the thoughtful homage to the movie’s dynamic droid duo, very much the Star Wars droid equivalent of Batman and Robin, have perhaps set the karmic record straight for them being denied entry into the Cantina bar.

I'll third that! I REALLY don't feel like walking around in gold shoes., but straight up R2 shoes would be both understated (most people wouldn't notice them) and a nice tribute to our favorite Astromech. Make the 3PO shoes by themselves as well. I'm sure there are plenty of fans out there that'd buy them!

I like to see them make two separate shoes. These look horrible the way they are. I would buy the R2-D2 version. This combined version. look worse then a bowling shoe.

Im holding my breath on the Boba Fetts. I also found an interview with the designer that hinted at a Chewbacca shoe that's gonna drop with the next installments to this set.

I'm with you, Keef. I'd love to see a straight up R2 offering. I'd be all over'em. Hunter Green/Brick Red/White Boba's would be coconuts.

Hoping that they'll do just a straight-up R2 - I'd definitely grab them. I'm hoping more are in the works for Sept...Fett, Ewoks (not that I really want to see those), Han, Greedo?...
