I've worn the same beat up holey pair of Vans for years now. I've lost count of how many times I've been told by people I didn't even know that I should get new shoes, but I never listened cause I never really saw the point in it. I'm not the type to fuss over holey shoes, until I saw these babies.
Recently, Vans came out with a Star Wars collection and they were all just too nice to pass up. A friend of mine had bought a pair for her fiance, and told me to check them out, and I'm so glad I did. Now, instead of holes I have shoes with wampas and tauntauns on them, and I'm pumped about it. Also, the aglets on the shoelace are meant to look like the hilt of a lightsaber and I think that's awesome.
They have a bunch of different styles ranging from the authentics like these, to slip ons to Sk8-His. All with Star Wars imagery, and in pretty much any size you could possibly be looking for, be it mens, womens or kids (I got mine in kids, it pays to have a tiny foot!), and all are in the $42-$60 price range. You can check out the whole collection on the Vans site here.
