We know how many Star Wars fans are in our WYSKy universe… we witnessed that a few weeks ago when legions of women and girls rallied to show 10-year-old Star Wars super fan Ellie she’s not alone. So we thought a good number of you might like to know that an exclusive collection of Star Wars-themed footwear for women was unveiled just last Friday in anticipation of the upcoming release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Simply put… it’s truly out-of-this-world.
The unique line, which includes 14 different designs that incorporate some of the best-loved Star Wars characters and iconic film elements into and onto every shoe and boot, is the creative handiwork of Irregular Choice, a UK-based footwear brand, in conjunction with Disney and Lucas Film.
The flats, oxfords, platforms, and boots feature everything from faded floral and graphic prints, to embroidered details and faux fur. You can even rock Stormtrooper/Darth Vader, Yoda, R2-D2 or lightsaber heels (the latter not only light up, but they also produce sound effects… seriously).
Dan Sullivan, the founder of Irregular Choice and its head designer, told UK news media outlet The Argus, “It has been absolutely great to come at it from a different angle coming in from the female side. Everyone think it is male orientated but there are so many female fans.” Hear, hear Dan!
Check out some of our favorite styles from the collection below, but before you get too excited, be forewarned that these super cool Star Wars kicks are not cheap (they range in price from $168 – $442)!
Editor’s Note: when we started putting this story together, all of the designs were available on the Irregular Choice site. At the time of posting, many of the designs have already sold out.
