I have no idea why someone thought we needed super intense Wonder Woman boot style slippers with pom poms, but I have to admit that I kind of want them.
Everyone knows that stepping on a Lego brick with bare feet is the worst kind of pain. However, it seems that Lego has finally acknowledged the problem with these anti-Lego slippers that feature extra protective padding.
The slippers were created as part of a collaboration between Lego and ad agency Brand Station for a holiday promotion. Unfortunately, only 1500 pairs will be produced, but they are being randomly given away to people that create a wish list on the Lego France website.
Not to worry though. Even if you don’t secure a pair, these Lego slippers would probably be a suitable replacement.
Did you know Indonesia has their own Comic-Con? I didn’t. Indonesia Comic-Con happened this past weekend where Marnova unveiled some of their upcoming Star Wars shoes and bags.
As far as we can tell, there are matching shoe and bag sets for C-3PO, R2-D2, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Chewbacca and a Stormtrooper.
Over the last few weeks we have featured several crazy new Star Wars shoe designs from Irregular Choice. They’re based in the UK, and several of these designs have already sold out. The good news is that ThinkGeek has picked up some of the shoes in the lineup—including those Skywalker lightsaber heels that actually light up. Darth Vader, C-3PO and Dark Side flats are also available.
The shoes are available in limited quantities, so if you’re willing to spend the money, now’s the time to grab them.

Nike finally made the Mags with Power Laces from Back To The Future II a reality yesterday, and Michael J. Fox made a memorable appearance on Kimmel last night to show them off.
He also confirmed that additional pairs of the shoes would be made and auctioned off in the Spring of 2016 with the proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. This follows a similar (and highly successful) auction of non-functional Nike Mags auctioned off in 2011.
Of course, snagging a pair at auction will be out of the financial reach of most fans, but worry not. Nike has revealed that the BTTF Mags are “just the first iteration”:
This innovation advances what was coined the Nike Mag’s “power laces,” combining the archetype invention with digital technology. The result is an individually responsive system that senses the wearer’s motion to provide adaptive on-demand comfort and support. But this is just the first iteration.
Nike continues to test this technology across multiple sports, incorporating feedback into future game-changing footwear with unprecedented performance features that have the potential to impact athletes around the world.
So it would seem that Power Lace technology will be incorporated into other Nike shoes in the near future.
In the meantime you can check out Michael J. Fox demonstrating the shoes on Kimmel and Twitter after the break…
UPDATE: Picture of Michael J. Fox wearing the real Mags added after the break.
Nike has repeatedly said that self-lacing Mags were coming in 2015, and it was pretty obvious that the announcement would come today:

Well, Michael J. Fox just received a letter…
While it may not feel like Fall for some of us, cooler weather is bound to come sooner or later.
That means you’ll need cozy clothes to keep you warm—which is where this pair of Harley Quinn plush slippers and a Harley Quinn cardigan come in handy.
See more pictures after the break.
