Woodsy's World of Star Wars: Star Wars Blinking Stride Rite Shoes!!

Ok so when I was a kid, I got all my shoes at Stride Rite. They'd measure your feet, watch you walk, pinch your toes to make sure your shoes fit and you weren't lying to your parents to keep them because you thought they were so cool. I even got all my tap and ballet shoes there. I definitely was a Stride Rite VIP at the ripe age of 9.

So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that Stride Rite was making Star Wars tennis shoes!! I realized they were made for children but I got a pair of the Captain Rex shoes anyway. I was "somehow" able to squeeze my left foot into one shoe and try out the lights on them! I'd never worn shoes with lights before!

After my fun with the one shoe, I reluctantly gave them to a dear friend's 8-year-old son Benjamin. He was in Heaven. "He loves them, he wears them everywhere," my friend Peter said.  When asked what he thought of his super new cool shoes, thanks to crazy Aunt Woodsy, Benjamin replied "I could totally outrun Rotta in these!"

Check out the lucky rascal with his new shoes on here:
