C-3PO & R2-D2 Shoes by Adidas

6 09 2010

As you all probably are aware, Adidas put out a line of Star Wars oriented clothing and shoes… but they left out two key characters, those being C-3PO and C-3PO.

In an article found on shoepimps.com

After releasing something like 13 different sneakers together this year, you may have been wondering why George Lucas and his Star Wars brand failed to honor R2 D2 and C-3PO in their collection with adidas Originals. Having put together shoes for many of the staple characters, bots and ships part of the Star Wars empire, we were in question as to why there was nothing honoring the robotic friends. As it turns out they weren’t forgotten, they were just held over for the continuation of the Star Wars x adidas Originals set to launch in the coming months. To pay tribute to the two galactic buddies, adidas and Star Wars produced a Top Ten Low using a 50/50 split with representation of R2 D2 on the outer side of the upper and C-3PO on the inner side. Graphics of both characters are also split between the tongue tags. According to Freshness, the sneakers are set to launch sometime in September. What I really wanna though is, can I get an Ewok model next?

Last we present you the adidas Originals x Star Wars Top Ten R2-D2 and C-3PO Top Ten from the Fall/Winter 2010 Collection. The sneaker was devided in half, with each half representing one of the two iconic Star Wars characters. One of the two characters is also featured on each tongue tag and they both appear embossed on the heel.

Many detailed images of the sneaker follow after the jump.

In my opinion it is upsetting that they put C-3PO and R2-D2 together, and R2 on the outside implying a higher level character… but hey thanks for thinking of us Droid Fans Adidas

C-3PO Backpack (revisited) Makes for World’s Most Obnoxious iPad Case

12 05 2010

I was surfing around, and I was impressed to see the popularity of the plush C-3PO backpack increasing significantly. I was also impressed to see it written about in the same conversation holding a negative note towards apple’s ipad. Here is a direct copy of the article found at: http://gizmodo.com/5537022/c+3po-backpack-makes-for-worlds-most-obnoxious-ipad-case

The best moment of the Star Wars trilogy was when C-3PO was nearly destroyed. Now you can commemorate that moment with the pleather C-3PO backpack.

Just like in the film, the robot isn’t all that useful—he comes with a mesh bag that’s basically only good for carrying himself along with any of his loose appendages. However, you can stuff his cavity with small objects—the iPad appears to be about the max payload—in a manner I like to imagine to be quite painful. When you’re done with the backpack, C-3PO can be reassembled in full as a 3-foot plush toy.


I still think it is a cool backpack, and I strongly suggest you get one. Especially if you have $500 to throw away on an over sized ipod touch, I think you should have this great collectors item to carry it in.

This is the most amazing addition to the C-3PO fashion category, and an exciting addition to school day fashion. I want one for sure, and I think you should force your kids to rock it as well, if they don’t like C-3PO… tell them this is as close to being Chewbacca as they can get before college. HA!

C-3PO Sneakers: Nike Blazer ‘C3PO’ Customs Always Wired

10 02 2010

With Adiddas’ latest fashion movement embracing Star Wars themed foot wear and apperal, I was surprised that I haven’t seen a C-3PO version leaked onto the Internet yet. Being that C-3PO fashion seems to be making it’s way into the mainstream, a venture of research was undertaken to located a C-3PO shoe. What was found was not that produced by Adiddas, but by rival Nike found on widefashion.com

The article read as follows:
Opulence can be measured in the quantity of gold you have in your possession. It goes without saying that wearing this sneaker will give you the looks of opulence beyond doubt.

The Nike Blazer ‘C3PO’ Customs sneaker is without doubt an attractive footwear that will make you proud. If you’re a Star Wars fan then the name would definitely ring a bell. C3PO is surely one of the lovable characters in the series which got the fancy of movie freaks.

The sneaker comes in a gold foil material making it a real C3PO look-alike, except that it doesn’t talk like a robot. It does have all the shine and charisma of C3PO which has captivated fans of all ages the world over. The silver strip on the midsole is reminiscent of C3PO’s silver right leg in the movie.

You have to get the Nike Blazer ‘C3PO’ Customs sneaker if only for the translucent Nike swoosh with different colored wires inside. The wires are just right to keep C3PO always wired and reconfigured.
