I hate shoe shopping. I consider it to be one of the banes of my life, beaten only by shopping for bras and jeans. Yet the new Po-Zu Star Wars range is rapidly making me as shoe obsessed as Carrie Bradshaw.
Po-Zu is not new to the Star Wars universe. The company’s dark brown Piper V boots were the exact ones as worn by Rey in The Force Awakens, and as a proud owner of a pair, I can testify to their extreme comfort. This year, however, the company has produced the Po-Zu Star Wars range—a full line of official Star Wars-branded shoes for men, women, and children—and I can honestly say that I want the lot.
In addition to looking and feeling amazing, Po-Zu is rated the most ethical shoe company by The Good Shopping Guide and many of their shoes and boots are vegan and leather-free. All their designs are sustainably produced in small factories, so you can feel good about buying them too.
The Po-Zu Star Wars range for women consists of 11 shoes and boots inspired by Rey, Chewbacca, Stormtroopers, BB-8, and the Resistance. Each of the designs comes with a removable “foot mattress” made of natural latex and cork which molds to the shape of your foot but which can be removed to allow orthotics placement. The soles of all designs are stitched onto the shoe making them glue-less.
The Rey Boot comes in brown and grey.
The brown edition is almost identical to the boot worn by Rey in The Force Awakens except for a small Resistance logo on the side. They are made of wool tweed, cork, wool felt, coconut husk, eco-microfibre, and natural latex, and are vegetarian.
The grey edition is a leather version of the same design and is made from chrome-free leather, wool tweed, wool felt, eco-microfibre, coconut husk, and natural latex.
£150 RRP Brown, £175 RRP Grey
The Rey Hi-Boot is inspired by Rey’s new boots as seen in The Last Jedi. They are made from chrome-free leather, eco-microfibre, coconut husk and natural latex. These boots are currently on pre-order and are due to be available in November 2017.
Women’s High-Top Sneakers
The high-top Resistance sneakers come in off-white, red, black, and a limited edition silver of which only 1000 pairs will be manufactured, each with a unique number stamped on the tongue lining. A BB-8 version is also available in bright orange. All these sneakers are fully vegan.
The off-white, red, black, and BB-8 designs are made with organic cotton canvas, eco-microfibre, natural latex, and cork. The limited edition silver design is made from Pinnatex—a “pineapple leaf leather” mixed with silver woven linen—along with eco-microfibre, natural latex, and cork.
£110 RRP Resistance/BB-8, £150 RRP Limited Edition Silver
The Chewbacca boot is vegan faux-fur boots made from eco-microfibre, coconut husk, natural latex, and faux fur. They feature the Star Wars Po-Zu logo on a tab at the top.
The Stormtrooper Boots come in black and white and are made from chrome-free leather, eco-microfibre, natural latex, and cork. They are inspired by the boots worn by First Order stormtroopers in The Force Awakens.
The Po-Zu Star Wars range for men consists of 13 shoes and boots inspired by Finn, Poe, Stormtroopers, BB-8, The Millennium Falcon, and the Resistance. Each of the designs comes with a removable “foot mattress” made of natural latex and cork which molds to the shape of your foot. The soles of all designs are stitched onto the shoe making them glue free.
Men’s High-Top Sneakers
The high-top Resistance sneakers come in sand, red, black, and a recently released limited edition bronze of which only 1000 pairs will be made. They are fully vegan and made with organic cotton canvas, eco-microfibre, natural latex, and cork.
£120 RRP Sand/Red/Black, £185 RRP Bronze
Men’s Millennium Falcon and BB-8 Sneakers
The Millennium Falcon print and BB-8 sneakers use the same materials as the Resistance sneakers. The Millennium Falcon print comes in off-white and black, while the BB-8 design is only available in orange.
Men’s Stormtrooper Boots
The Stormtrooper Boots are available in black and white, both of which feature an embossed Betaplast helmet and Star Wars Po-Zu logo. They are made from chrome-free leather, eco-microfibre, natural latex, and cork.
The Po-Zu Star Wars range for children consists of seven shoes and boots inspired by BB-8, the Resistance, stormtroopers, Rey, and Chewie. The shoes are identical to their adult counterparts except for the fastening of the Rey boots. The children’s version of these features an adjustable elastic cord at the back instead of the thin laces seen on the adult version to make it easier to fasten them.
