Now when I first saw these I was overcome with panic. First glance I thought they were using vintage R2 figures then I realised he had his third leg. Phew! Anyway these are a great idea. I wonder if my wife would like these as this years Christmas present? You can find them over at http://www.instructables.com/id/R2D2-heels/ and they give you step by step guide on how to make them
Here's what they have to say about them.
Forget protocol, droid, and mash up everyone's favorite astromech with mid-heels and create the greatest footwear the Empire has ever seen. These R2D2 shoes are the hottest thing this side of Tatooine and they’re cooler than Hoth.
The wide heel of these shoes was removed and replaced with a steel bolt to provide strength and support, but at a fraction of the size. An R2D2 toy covers the heel bolt, and the toes have been decorated with lenses, blue accents, and a blinking red LED to let everyone know just how this droid rolls.
This project follows mostly the same process as Dinosaur Heels, but with a few more additions to take it to the next level. Whether you're dashing to Tosche Station for power converters or just going to the store, these R2D2 heels are sure to give you geek cred faster than you can shut down all the trash compactors on the detention level.
