BhuddaTB, do those things come with Star Wars legos? Are the officially licensed by Lucasarts?

If so, those would look pretty nice in my Star Wars collection...

No, the lego figures do not come with the shoes. I was just trying to be creative.


Here's some of my other Star Wars legos carrying some "shoe nukes". :lol:

They were released in the USA. Can only be found at skate shops that carry the Nike skateboarding line.

Will be worth $$$ in a few months. :P

What's surprising is that the Star Wars fans have said very little about these shoes. You'd think that they'd be breaking down the doors of local skate shops to get them.

I have friends in the UK that ask me to pick up shoes for them since its a lot cheaper here. I'm still waiting for the conversion rate to drop down some, so I can ask them to pick me up some Euro-exclusives.
