With over 42 years as a franchise, it’s amazing how there are still new things for Star Wars to offer to their fans. We’re still months away from Episode IX: Rise Of Skywalker, so in the meantime, fans have to get their kicks from other forms of media and merchandise. These new Star Wars shoes definitely takes the cake for being some of the coolest Star Wars paraphernalia.

Toms have become the brand that provides shoes for those looking for comfort and conscious buying, as every pair of Toms shoes you buy will be matched and given to a child in need.  They’ve been doing this humanitarian campaign since the start of the company 13 years ago. The company has done a collaboration with Disney before, so it’s a no-brainer that they joined forces with Star Wars.

What makes these Star Wars Toms extra special is with the designs, which incorporates the original storyboards of the first 3 films. Star Wars art in general, like storyboards and even preliminary concept art by Ralph McQuarrie, are instantly recognisable by fans and highly sought after. The storyboards are based on iconic scenes from episodes 4, 5 and 6, which depicts the two Death Star battles, the Battle of Hoth, as well as some concept art of the main characters like Chewbacca, C-3P0, and Darth Vader.

These shoes come available in sizes for men and women, and are available now in Toms retail outlets around the world, though the Malaysian Toms have not specified the price and release date just yet. The adult men and women shoes are starts at USD 69.95, while children pairs retail from USD 39.95. Those interested can check them out at Toms’ official website.
