adidas-star-wars-sneakers

Coinciding with the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, Adidas has once again translated a favorite fandom into a super stylized sneaker line. The new kicks are modeled after Adidas Originals’ classic Superstar from the ’80s with tons of new customization options.

Consumers will be able to add Stormtrooper prints, exclusive Star Wars laces, the choice of gold or silver shell-toes and even 3D Darth Vader and Stormtrooper helmet-inspired accents set on the rear of the sneaker.

converse-chuck-II

Chuck Taylor All-Stars are as iconic as they are uncomfortable. After 98 years, they are finally getting an upgrade. The official title of the new kicks is Chuck II (although Chuck 2.0 would have been been funnier), and although the outside maintains the classic look we know and love, the inside has been revamped with Nike technology.

The major difference is the inclusion of Nike’s proprietary material called Lunarlon. It’s a lightweight, bouncy foam that will be added to the Chuck II’s sole to give it some overdue comfort. The other differenc is a $15 increase on the price tag (naturally). High and low top versions will run you $75 and $70 respectively when they launch on July 28th.

So, it’s the same great look, but should feel way better your feet after a day full of convention walking. Check out more pics of the new sneakers after the break.

jurassic heels

Jurassic World features lots of dinosaurs and some stupid humans fleeing from them, like Claire Dearing who wears high heels the whole time. This insane parody gives everyone in the Jurassic Park series high heels, making it way more stylish in the process. Even the dinosaurs get a little something special to wear as they hunt the hapless humans.

In case you haven’t heard, our oceans are full of plastic and other garbage. Thankfully, scientists around the world have started to map out all the heavy pockets of ocean-borne trash so, eventually, we can work on cleaning it up. Plus, we can turn that plastic into cool new products through the magic of recycling.

Case in point: Adidas and Parley for they Oceans recently partnered up to create a design concept for a running shoe that’s sourced from oceanic trash. Fibers, filaments and yarn are pulled together from illegal deep-sea gillnets—which is noticeable in that distinctive blue netting pattern.

Most of the trash was picked up off the West African coastline during a lengthy, 110-day expedition. The shoe is still in the design phase, but the two companies are planning on releasing similar consumer products later this year.

These POLYPODIS shoes look like they should be the official footwear of Cthulhu cultists. Designed by Kermit Tesoro, each shoe is a mass of tentacles that is both captivating and likely torturously uncomfortable to wear. Oh yes, Cthulhu would approve.
