Sperry to Release Star Wars 40th Anniversary Shoe Collection


By: Haylee Fisher (@haylee_fisher)

When exploring a galaxy far, far away, you need the proper footwear.

That’s why Sperry is launching a five-shoe collection inspired by Star Wars for the film series’ 40th anniversary.

While two of the shoe designs are more subtle, featuring the Rebel Alliance logo and the Imperial crest, three have artwork that captures characters and scenes from the film, including Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and R2-D2. One style even showcases concept art Ralph McQuarrie developed before the films even came out and depict the flight of the X-wings to destroy the Death Star and the battle between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.

The line will launch tomorrow and will be available at sperry.com, Sperry retail stores, and a select number of other retailers. Take a look at the shoes and the official descriptions below and let us know if you’ll be picking up a pair (or all five)!

The Han & Chewie Cloud Slip-On

Climb aboard the Millennium Falcon with most famous smugglers in the galaxy, Han Solo and Chewbacca. This pair of scoundrels were called upon to help Luke and Obi-Wan deliver the Death Star plans to the Rebellion but instead found themselves on a journey to save the galaxy.

The Droid Cloud Slip-On

“These are the droids you’re looking for.” Join C-3PO and R2-D2 on their quest to deliver the Death Star plans to Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi in hopes of destroying the Empire’s most powerful weapon. The two are seen here wandering through the barren deserts of Tatooine in the search for Obi-Wan – a fateful journey that would turn these bumbling droids into a pair of unlikely heroes.

The McQuarrie Cloud Slip-On

Walk back in time to the humble beginnings of what would become the classic Star Wars saga in the McQuarrie Cloud Slip-On. This shoe, exclusively available at sperry.com, features concept art that was designed by Ralph McQuarrie before any of the films were produced. The McQuarrie sketches featured on these shoes depict the now famous scenes of the X-Wing flight to destroy the Death Star, and the ultimate battle between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. This pair pays tribute to all the hard work that went into bringing George Lucas’ vision to life.

The Rebel Pilot Cloud CVO

Gear up for your attack run on the Death StarT with the Rebel Pilot CVO. The battle-worn orange canvas is the color of the X-Wing pilot jumpsuits, and an element of hero Luke Skywalker’s helmet decal comes through in the silver and yellow heel stripe. With the Rebel symbol featured on the side, no one can mistake whose side you’re on.

The Death Star Cloud CVO

Feel the power of the dark side with this black CVO, a tribute to the evil Empire. A laser green citron accent represents the planet-destroying beam of the Empire’s most powerful weapon, the Death Star. The Imperial symbol rests on battle-worn canvas, tattered from their struggle to extinguish the Rebellion once and for all.
