Fearless Friday: R2D2 Heels


Since the fact that J.J. Abrams will direct the new Star Wars film has recently been announced, I thought it only appropriate to feature these cute droid heels.  These DIY R2D2 heels have got to be the greatest footwear the Empire has ever seen.  And while they are not easy to make, if you have the inclination you will end up with shoes that will provide you with serious geek cred!

How To Make R2D2 Heels

The wide heel of these shoes was removed and replaced with a steel bolt to provide strength and support. An R2D2 toy covers the heel bolt, and the toes have been decorated with lenses and blue foam cutouts and topped off with a blinking red LED (cute).  For a full list of materials required and instructions, visit instructables.
