I am a massive geek, a fact I manage to hide the majority of the time but sometimes I can’t help but let it slip. Like when I first spotted these shoes. I am not a shoe person, I don’t have any shoe hoarding tendencies and I had certainly never seen a pair I “had” to own. Until the Star Wars Vans.
I saw these Vans in the summer and instantly showed them to my boyfriend telling him they were the coolest shoes in the world. I doubt John agreed but he was safe in the knowledge that I wasn’t going to treat myself to a £50 pair of shoes and stored the idea away. Six months later I had accepted that I couldn’t afford them and had put them to the back of my mind when on Christmas morning I let out a squeal! John had scrolled through months of our messages to find the link and had bought me my very own pair of Star Wars shoes!
I am absolutely thrilled with the geekiest shoes I will ever own and can’t wait for the drier weather when I can impress (embarrass) family and friends by wearing them out and about. (I don’t want to ruin them by wearing them in the winter do I?!) So far I’ve been showing them off indoors and carefully photographing them in the snow. I love the film poster print which is different on each shoe and have been impressed by how comfy they are, although I was expecting this as Vans are always easy to wear.
