If you tuned in to my interview with the Galactic Fashion podcast, you may remember I talked about fans wanting to wear apparel from their favorite movies as well as the continuing desire for more Star Wars shoes.
Well, now we’re getting both and they’re probably going to be really comfortable too.
This month sustainable footwear company Po-Zu announced that they’ve collaborated with Lucasfilm to bring to life a Star Wars collection that includes not only Star Wars-inspired shoes but replica footwear from the Star Wars movie universe. This is a serious boon for Star Wars costumers and Star Wars non-costumer fans alike. Are you excited? I’m excited. I’m really, really excited. The pair of Po-Zu boots I have are some of my favorite shoes I’ve ever owned.
The collection is set to launch at the end of November at the FFANY (Fashion Footwear Association of New York) Shoe Show. That means wholesalers are going to get the first look and hopefully some stores in the US (and other countries) pick up the line. As someone who has ordered through Po-Zu online, it’s a little scary when you hope you’ve measured your feet correctly for something that’s shipping internationally. Luckily I had no problem with my fit, but, as with most items, it’s nice to get to try things on and compare sizes before you buy it.
The general public will be able to buy shoes from this Star Wars collection in August of 2017. While you’re waiting you can find out more about the company’s commitment to quality, buy shoe cream that’s edible, and check out some boots that you may recognize from The Force Awakens on their website Po-Zu.com.
