Lucas never ceases to amaze us.  Just about everything and anything a kid can wear has been ran through the Star Wars machine.  What is the Star Wars machine?  It converts just about any product into a must have item.  Back in the day it was just figurines, toys and maybe the occasional lunch box.  But not we’re talking video games, mind controlled board games and now even sneakers – to be truthful they made sneakers back in the day as well (this writer has a pair).

Unfortunately, they’re designed for kids only, but if you happen to have very small feet you can score your own pair from Stride Rite.  There are a handful of versions, but only two of them light up; Lighted Captain Rex (good/Jedi) and Dualing Light Saber (evil/Sith).  There is also a Darth Maul pair, which apparently are lighted, but barely, at least when compared with the first two.  And let’s not overlook the toddler versions, which are beyond adorable.

You can get your kids into a pair of the light up Star Wars shoes for $56.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
