Classic Star Wars Vans Slip-On Shoes

Posted on 8 June 2015

This is a pair of classic slip-on style Vans shoes with a great image from the original Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope from 1977.

The image is from the original U.S. one-sheet movie poster style C and features most of the main characters from the movie, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, Chewbacca, and the droids. Featured prominently are Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo, all wielding weapons in dynamic action poses. The image is adjusted slightly from the actual movie poster and shows the Millennium Falcon above Luke's head instead of Darth Vader and the Death Star.

The full-color image from Star Wars is printed across the vamp (front of the shoe) for the enjoyment of others -- it faces upside-down from the perspective of the wearer.

The American shoe company Vans is famous for making shoes geared towards skateboarders and BMX riders. The shoes are known for their rugged style and sticky soles. These are slip-on style shoes with elastic on the sides to help keep them snug and a padded collar for added comfort.
