You’ll have to excuse the excessive use of Star Wars references, because really, how could we resist? There’s something about the legendary movie franchise that brings out the inner fandom in us.
Italian shoe brand Superga has teamed up with the Star Wars franchise for an epic collaboration to create a collection of kicks inspired by the different characters in the movies. Star Wars fans will immediately recognise that the collection includes pairs inspired by a stormtrooper, C-3PO, R2D2 and the infamous Darth – I am your father – Vader.
The characters are embossed on the toecap while the Star Wars logo is embossed on sides of the shoes. You can strut around town with Galaxy-saving or destroying confidence (depends on which side you’re on, of course).
Each shoe is unique in its own way. For example, the Darth Vader edition sports a sinister black and red colour theme; a perfect representation of the villainous Sith Lord, while the Storm Trooper version is clean and classy; just like the uniforms of the Galactic Empire’s main ground force.
The shoes are available in both adult and kid sizes, and are made out of polysynthetic leather. Its insides are crafted with cotton lining, ensuring a comfy and snug fit.
Good news for everyone because Superga x Star Wars collection will be hitting stores nationwide as from November 2016, just in time for the next installation in the series, Rouge One: A Star Wars story, which comes out in December. You can purchase a pair at Superga retail stores at Wheelock Place, VivoCity, Tangs at Tangs Plaza, or online at superga.com.
