According to Hollywood Lost and Found, he does.

While millions of fans have seen the soles of Darth Vader, R2-D2, and C-3PO immortalized in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, the original gold protocol droid’s costume didn’t include the gizmo-encrusted soles pressed into the cement in the famous landmark’s forecourt. Apparently, these soles were special-made for the footprint ceremony (which took place August 3, 1977), and currently reside in a private collection.

Check out Hollywood Lost and Found for the full story.
