Look at these slippers, they are creepy, cool, and weirdly ’80s. They are modeled after the ‘Ello worm from Labyrinth, Jim Henson’s classic 1980s fantasy. It seems like everytime I turn around there is some Labyrinth oddity out there.
I don’t like sushi. I once was tricked into eating some, and I thought it was really gross. I was starving after walking 187 miles during CES one year, and was invited to dinner, along with the promise of steak.
Etsy seller Orions Originals make custom geeky shoes, including these awesome Han Solo and Chewbacca high heels that are just perfect for any lady who has a Millennium Falcon dress.

Things can get a bit weird in Japan. Take these shoes for instance. They aren’t meant to be worn; they are meant to be eaten. I mean sure they look like normal men’s dress shoes, but they are actually made from chocolate.
Back to the Future II showed us so many cool and futuristic inventions, but one of the coolest were the sneakers that automatically laced themselves. The problem is that even though Nike is finally producing them for real, they cost over $700 a pair – if you can even find them.

Dr. Martens’ Adventure Time boots all kick ass; the Marceline boots in particular are some of the best-looking boots I’ve seen. Thankfully, the algebraic collaboration continues to this day with the release of BMO and Princess Bubblegum DMs.
Apparently people were super excited about these Air Jordan 11 sneakers. You can see why. These awesome shoes sport a moon landing theme. They were supposedly created by Spanish shoe company sivasdescalzo and were set to debut on December 28.
We’ve seen a couple of outrageous heels with Star Wars-themed details. These BB-8 heels by Instructables employee Mike Warren aka mikeasaurus are stylish but not over the top. In fact, they’re under a pair of tops, because you can spin the droid-shaped heels.
Born in 1980, Nicholas Kirkwood grew up right as video games, sci-fi and computers became mainstream. So for his 10th anniversary as a shoe designer he decided to pay homage to geek culture and the icons of our generation.
You have to hand it to the folks at LEGO. They know what the people want. The little people want actual LEGO sets. Well, so do the big people, but the adults also want protection from stepping on the painful bricks when walking around barefoot.
Star Wars fever is in full frenzy with the new flick coming this holiday season, and with that, there is a plethora of new Star Wars merch to choose from. One of the most interesting and unexpected that I have seen so far are these Skywalker Lightsaber Lace Up Heels
The limited edition shoes are brown and beige with what appears to be a snakeskin foil pattern on them.
Do you feel a disturbance in the Force? A tingling in your feet as if millions of fangirls had suddenly cried out in joy? It’s probably because of these Darth Vader and Stormtrooper heels. The Force is strong in them.
