My five year old son is wild about Star Wars, so we were thrilled when Stride Rite asked us if we’d like to review something from their new line of Star Wars branded sneakers. The Star Wars branded sneakers feature characters that were in the 3 original movies, plus the Clone Wars Movie and Series on Cartoon Network. Choose from Darth Vader, General Grevious, Boba Fett, Jedi, and even the Milenium Falcon (on sale for $29 in a skate style in Kids)!
We fell in love with their Captain Rex Lighted Sneakers ($55). I have to confess, I don’t watch the Clone Wars, but my husband does and he thought Captain Rex was a great choice — Captain Rex is from Star Wars’ Clone Wars Movie and has more of a role in the cartoon on the Cartoon Network These fun light-up sneakers are great quality and have a flexible outsole, hook and loop closure and a pearlized leather upper. Sizes range from toddler to older kid and are geared to boys.
