Footwear company Sperry has announced an upcoming Star Wars footwear collection! Due to release on 10th August 2017, the collection includes women’s, men’s and unisex footwear styles to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars. Designs include C-3PO & R2-D2, Han Solo & Chewbacca, and classic artwork by Ralph McQuarrie. The collection will be sold online, at Sperry stores in the US and selected international retailers (except for the McQuarrie style, which will be a Sperry.com online exclusive).
I haven’t heard of Sperry before, but the shoe styles look comfortable and fun. My favourite design is the Droid Cloud Slip-On, I love the soft colour scheme and Rebel Alliance symbol on the heel. Read on below for a closer look at the styles revealed so far –

The Droid Cloud Slip-On –
“These are the droids you’re looking for.” Join C- 3PO™ and R2-D2™ on their quest to deliver the Death Star™ plans to Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi in hopes of destroying the Empire’s most powerful weapon. The two are seen here wandering through the barren deserts of Tatooine™ in the search for Obi-Wan – a fateful journey that would turn these bumbling droids into a pair of unlikely heroes.
The Han And Chewie Cloud Slip-On –
Climb aboard the Millennium Falcon™ with most famous smugglers in the galaxy, Han Solo and Chewbacca. This pair of scoundrels were called upon to help Luke and Obi-Wan deliver the Death Star™ plans to the Rebellion but instead found themselves on a journey to save the galaxy.
The Rebel Pilot Cloud CVO –
Gear up for your attack run on the Death Star™ with the Rebel Pilot CVO. The battle-worn orange canvas is the color of the X-Wing™ pilot jumpsuits, and an element of hero Luke Skywalker’s helmet decal comes through in the silver and yellow heel stripe. With the Rebel symbol featured on the side, no one can mistake whose side you’re on.
The Death Star Cloud CVO –
Feel the power of the dark side with this black CVO, a tribute to the evil Empire. A laser green citron accent represents the planet-destroying beam of the Empire’s most powerful weapon, the Death Star™. The Imperial symbol rests on battle-worn canvas, tattered from their struggle to extinguish the Rebellion once and for all.
The McQuarrie Cloud Slip-On –
Walk back in time to the humble beginnings of what would become the classic Star Wars saga in the McQuarrie Cloud Slip-On. This shoe, exclusively available at sperry.com, features concept art that was designed by Ralph McQuarrie before any of the films were produced. The McQuarrie sketches featured on these shoes depict the now famous scenes of the X-Wing™ flight to destroy the Death Star™, and the ultimate battle between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. This pair pays tribute to all the hard work that went into bringing George Lucas’ vision to life.
The Star Wars collection features five styles that will launch on August 10, 2017 in the United States and in select regions around the globe. The pack highlights what we love about the original trilogy and its characters and will be available for purchase at Sperry retail stores, sperry.com, and at select retailers in Thailand, Philippines, Hong Kong, Japan, Panama, Germany, and Canada.
