Hold on to your hats (and socks!) – Porg sneakers are here.
Star Wars fans and sneaker-lovers will have the chance to stride out in footwear printed with the newest character to capture the heart of Star Wars: The Last Jedi fans throughout the galaxy.
The new Porg sneaker is the latest in the range of co-branded Star Wars footwear to be released by ethical shoe brand Po-Zu, under license by Lucasfilm and Disney.
The low-cut and high-top styles were launched for pre-sale yesterday (23 January) and orders will be dispatched at the end of April, with global shipping.
A game-changing ethical range
Dubbed a game-changer for ethical footwear consumers and Star Wars enthusiasts alike, the new Sri Lankan ethical range will include unisex and vegan sneakers at a very affordable price point.
The sneakers, made with organic cotton canvas upper, a coconut husk and natural latex FootMattress™ and FSC certified Fairtrade rubber soles, follow the sustainability pillars on which founder and CEO Sven Segal began Po-Zu 11 years ago.
The new Sri Lankan ethical line will sit alongside Po-Zu’s Portuguese range, complementing the current offering of high-quality leather and non-leather premium products, inspired by the footwear of main characters in the films such as Rey, Finn, Chewbacca and Poe.
