If Hoth and Dagobah taught us nothing else, it’s that intergalactic travel comes with some brutal weather here and there. We have to figure Han, Luke, Leia and co. must have had access to some seriously posh footwear to keep them just deciding to take a lightsaber to their soggy, frostbitten toes.
Or maybe the Force is a tougher protectant than tough-actin’ Tinactin.
Luckily, when jubilant nerd-throngs throughout the colder reaches of North America march into the streets Dec. 18 to crowd theaters for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, a wise few will surely be sporting these fleece R2-D2 Slipper Boots. Modeled after the galaxy’s bravest, spunkiest Astromech droid’s body, these are even sewn with a hard-bottom sole that makes them perfectly appropriate to wear outdoors at your leisure. We’re sure these are more comfortable, warmer and less messy than cutting open a Tauntaun to slide your feet into, no? Don’t underestimate the power of plush geeky lounging.
