Two questions:
1 - Can I pull this off?
2 - Would my 2 year old Buzz loving son even notice?

I did actually see a kid in mismatched Buzz & Woody gumboots the other day but they certainly didn’t look limited edition Reebok cool.

Looks more like the kind of thing people would buy to collect rather than wear, the shoes look rather busy and tacky but i suppose i’m not the target demographic for this.

Also i sure hope the sole of the shoe says Andy (probs won’t)

One foot gets Woody, the other foot gets Buzz

And Disney gets the profits.

Pass.

I’m with Melizmatic; what if I want a pair of Woodys, or two Buzzes? This seems like a failure on both the footwear AND fan service fronts. Hard pass.

From the sound of the article, that won’t be an issue since — “only a handful of pairs will be produced instead of seeing a general release.” It’s a collector’s shoe release that will probably never find its way to the feet of a child (except maybe a Kardashian or something). Which is a shame, because kids love mismatched shoes/socks and these are super cute.

Isn’t this obsoleted by the plot arc of Toy Story 4? (Spoiler below.)

Woody parts ways with Buzz Lightyear to join a now independent Bo Peep, and to see the rest of the world outside of being a child owned toy.

Obligatory

There is no message, only toys to sell.
Late stage something or other.

Not just kids, I’m an “adult” and wear odd socks every day!

That said, with these I would love to wear a double-buzz over the mixed pair

Those are fantastic! I often do, too, because it’s fun and makes people smile.

That’s a good spot.
Why not instead release a kit with spork, pipe cleaners, lolly sticks and some sugru?

Hold on.

A Buzz and a Woody are good enough for me
