Star Wars: In a Galaxy not so Far Away

“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…”

Star Wars is one of the most iconic movie franchises of all time. As of June 2014, Star Wars is no longer in a galaxy far away, but rather in the closest Vans store at your local mall.  This summer, Vans launched their line of apparel inspired by the original Star Wars trilogy.

The limited edition line includes a variety of shoes, backpacks, hats, and other items for both men and women. All of the designs are Star Wars themed, such as a Hawaiian-infused print with Yoda...

...or a Storm Trooper slip-on shoe.

The collection is the perfect opportunity for Star Wars nerds to let their geek flags fly, i.e. wear the original Star Wars poster on their feet. As a Star Wars fan myself, I bought the aforementioned Hawaiian Yoda print shoes this summer. But the edgy new designs give the collection a broader appeal than just the die-hard fan base. For example, one of the shoes in the collection features a dark green camouflage backdrop with Boba Fett subtly in the background.

The diversity of designs allows the new Star Wars Vans collection to be versatile and interesting for any person to rock.

So next time you are at the local mall, stop by the Vans store to see the collection or visit Vans website:, for the full collection online. Check out the interesting products inspired by the iconic movies. After all, this collaboration with Vans allows people to be re-inspired by the classic movies and helps keep the Star Wars tradition alive in a galaxy not so far away.
