Star Wars fans: prepare to pre-order the official Star Wars-Po-Zu footwear collection, inspired by lead characters including Finn, Poe, Stormtrooper and Chewie.
Collectible and wearable
Following a highly successful pre-launch at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando last month, Po-Zu is today (04 May) launching the collection for pre-order to international audiences. Delivery is expected in August.
The collection includes six styles for women, five styles for men and five styles for children, retailing for £85-225.
‘We built the range to be a collectible but also highly wearable. We wanted the shoes to resonate with the Star Wars community whilst also being commercially designed by incorporating some strong trend-led cues. What was really great about the Orlando show is the craftsmanship and quality were widely praised – our history of working in partnership with our suppliers has helped us to bring our ethics into this range we love.’
Founder and creative director of Po-Zu
The Rey boot, which features wool tweed, natural cork, natural latex and the signature Po-Zu Foot-Mattress™, has been authentically designed and crafted to closely resemble the boots worn in the film by Daisy Ridley.
‘These boots are the most comfortable I have ever worn and I love that they complete my outfit so perfectly, they are just like the shoes worn in the film.’
Other main characters’ boots include Finn, Poe, Stormtrooper and Chewie, while more general-themed pieces include highly versatile vegan sneakers made with organic cotton and emblazoned with the Rebel Alliance and BB-8 symbols.
