Damn, Samus!

Alright, yes, I know. I referenced a meme. I’m the worst person alive, and I should be taken out back and shot, repeatedly, until there is nothing left of my body but a red-pink mulch wrapped in a Firefly tee-shirt.

But – but! – these Nintento Vans are awesome. And, not to undersell some of the spectacular custom Vans we’ve featured in the past, but these babies are officially licensed.

Hot on the heels (arf) of their Disney and Star Wars themed lines, these classic Nintendo sneakers are expected to hit stores in June. I’ve never owned a pair of Vans in my life – I’m really more of a Converse kind of guy, if only for the Doctor Who connection – but I can’t miss these phenomenal designs.

Check out photos of each revealed design below.

Teaser 1 SHORT

Phase one of the Irregular Choice Star Wars collection did so well that we’re getting a sequel! Right now, we only have a look at two new designs, but they’re definitely worth showing off.

This time around, R2’s going sparkly and flat while Vader gets the high heel treatment in gold.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, Sperry footwear is celebrating their starring role in JAWS with a new limited edition run of JAWS-themed shoes based on the styles used in the film.

The styles, the designs, the packaging—everything about this collaboration is great.

Are you tempting fate by wearing these on a boat? Maybe. But if you’re gonna go, you may as well look good doing it.

You’ll be able to find them at Sperry, Journeys, and other retailers starting in May with prices ranging from $70 – $85. They’ll be available in men’s, women’s, and unisex styles, so everyone can get in on the action.

Cue the music and check out all of the styles below!

April 26th has been dubbed Alien Day and 20th Century Fox is going all out in a 24-hour social media event, complete with prizes and special events. First and foremost, Alien & Aliens will return to theaters in over 20 cities at participating Alamo Drafthouse locations and other partnering theaters. They’re also releasing lots of new Alien merchandise made by companies like NECA, Dark Horse, Medicom, Sideshow, and more.

But one item, in particular, jumped out at me and while they’re going to releasing a lot of cool stuff, I want these so bad I could spit acid.

These Reebok Alien Stomper Sneakers are an exact replica of the Alien High-Top Stompers worn by Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley. They’re also releasing a mid-top version as worn by Lance Henrikson aka Bishop. Both pairs will be available in limited quantities on April 26th at Reebok.com and select Reebok stores worldwide.

You can check out the full press release below for all the details. (I love the giveaways every 42.6 minutes).

Crocs may not be for everyone, but if comfort and Star Wars takes precedent over style, then these should be right up your alley.

Even I might rock those Boba Fett versions.

cinderella flip flops

Will these Cinderella comic flip flops fit? Yes, I’m pretty sure they will—you know, because they come in different sizes. Plus, wearing glass slippers to the beach is just a recipe for disaster.

nike hyperadapt

You may recall that Michael J. Fox was gifted a pair of Nike Mags with power laces for Back to the Future Day. As promised, Nike has begun the process of incorporating the technology into mass produced sneakers with the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0.

Functional simplicity reduces a typical athlete concern, distraction. “When you step in, your heel will hit a sensor and the system will automatically tighten,” explains Tiffany Beers, Senior Innovator, NIKE, Inc., and the project’s technical lead. “Then there are two buttons on the side to tighten and loosen. You can adjust it until it’s perfect.”

Check it out in the video below.

Daniel and Josh of “Damn, Daniel” fame birthed a meme that exploded overnight. Suddenly, these two Inland Empire teens were famous. That fame, and Daniel’s appreciation for white Vans, led to an appearance on Ellen where Daniel was given a lifetime supply of Vans among other things.

However, it seems that Daniel and Josh aren’t the kind of kids to take fame and exploit it solely for personal gain. The teens partnered with Vans and Loma Linda Children’s Hospital to visit sick kids there and give away a hundred pairs of shoes.

It’s nice to see stuff like this, especially the smiling faces of everyone involved. Check out more pics below.
