The battle over the universe has officially spilled over into the sneaker world with the official unveiling of the Star Wars x Vans Classic Footwear Collection with updated release information. Featuring iconic imagery from the unforgettable film series, the collection includes an equal part of Vans’ own timeless silos, including the Authentic and Sk8-Hi from Vans Classics and the Era and Half Cab by Vault by Vans. As our preview noted, each model presents a combination of designs that align with the Dark side, including stormtroopers, Yoda, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and the Death Star. Obviously, the set couldn’t be complete with an appearance by some of our favorite Jedi Knights, which, as a tribute to the original film, Vans has added to the Classic Slip-on with 1977 Star Wars graphics on the toe box. Along with an assortment of apparel and accessories, the Footwear Collection will be available beginning June 1st at Vans retail stores and select accounts across the map.
Release Date: June 1, 2014 (Sunday)
