adidas instagram shoes 1

When you look through the photos on your Instagram feed, do any of them jump out at you and say, “Hey, please print me on shoes?” If so, you’re in luck because Adidas is going to make that dream a reality. With their upcoming Photo Print App for the ZX Flux, you’ll be able to take a photo (please don’t choose a selfie or a food pic) and get the image printed onto their ZX Flux sneakers. The app will be available for iPhone and Android users this August.

It’s a neat enough idea, but I’m not convinced the images will look crisp and defined on shoes. I also imagine that there will be rules preventing the use of images with copyrighted brands and potentially offensive content. We’ll see.

See examples of the concept and a teaser ad for the shoes after the break.

Adidas has proved that tennis shoes and Star Wars are a snazzy (and comfortable) combo. Designer Freehand Profit decided to take it one step further—he made a wearable Stormtrooper helmet from two pairs of Adidas sneakers.

It looks more comfortable than the standard armor bucket, but I don’t want to think about the smell. If you want to wear sneakers on your head, you can bid on this piece right now at eBay.

The latest line of Star Wars themed shoes are in stock online and available to teleport into your closet (well, if the Star Wars universe had teleporters). You can choose from the Luke Skywalker Hoth shoes pictured above, a Wampa design, a Darth Vader option, or from a line of Superstar shoes. Any of these footwear options are guaranteed to help you get away from bounty hunters.

We teased adidas’ plans for the release of Tron:Legacy back in July, and got glimpses of new gear here and there, but word has come down that the collection is now available online and at the Tron pop-up store in Culver City, California.

The collection features glow-in-the-dark and 3D jackets, sweatshirts, and tees. So far, no word yet on the availability of the shoes in the collection, but we have a new design in the series pictured after the break.

Supposedly, these are conceptual designs of Twitter and Facebook shoes by Gerry Mckay for Adidas. But I believe (I hope) this is the internet’s way trolling me and that these will never come to be.

It’s no secret that I’m a social media addict and that I loves me some Twitter, but wearing a pair of “Twitter Superstars” just strikes me as “social media branding” run amok.

Am I crazy, or are these really a step too far? Check out the Twitter version after the break.

What the hell?

The ultimate battle between good and evil takes doesn’t take place on some distant planet. It takes place on the tennis court.

You would think Vader might have this wrapped up pretty easy, but despite Yoda’s lack of reach, he’s quick and he can serve like no other. Vader, on the other hand, has asthma and it makes it difficult for him to keep up in a long match.
