Star Wars Shoes for kids – perfect for dress-up at Halloween, and every mini-cosplayer you know!
The highly anticipated Star Wars TM | Po-Zu range offers a gender-neutral collection of seven footwear styles for children here.
The collection also includes styles for grown-ups – shoes, boots and sneakers inspired by the main characters in the Star Wars films under license with Lucas Film and Disney.
The whole family can wear these to great ‘Me and Mini-Me’ effect. Personally we LOVE these CHEWIE BOOTS – Ottie the Dog was a bit confused by them as you can see – and we had some fun with Boomerang creating gifs with the 12yo son – he just didn’t want to take them off!
This is the first foray into Kids’ Shoes for award winning ethical footwear label and pioneer, Po-Zu – and we have to say we are a little bit in love with the entire range.
My absolute favourite is the BB-8 – an orange hi-top sneaker, available size 30 – 35 for kids. Also – and by popular demand and allegedly a special request by Brian Herring, the BB-8 Puppeteer – this striking baseball boot style now also available for grown-up men and women too!
As with all of Po-Zu’s shoes and boots, from their ‘heritage range’ – the collection is handmade in their eco factory in Portugal. No toxic glues are used in the production, and all are hand stitched (there are some amazing videos on their YouTube channel – like ‘through the round window’ – factory visits, watching how they make the shoes – fascinating – watch here)
The High Tops in Orange, Black and Red, and the Chewie Boot are all vegan; the Rey Boot (perfect for Rey Cosplay) is vegetarian, and the black and the white Stormtrooper Boots are made from Chrome Free Leather.
And if you’d like to see these boots visit the Museum of Brands – to celebrate the cutting edge launch of Star WarsTM| Po-Zu footwear collection, there will be a new exhibit.
Open from Friday 1 September in celebration of Force Friday, until Sunday 12 November 2017, this exhibit showcases sustainable shoes inspired by the Star Wars characters including Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, BB-8, Chewbacca and the First Order Stormtroopers.
