Alright, I am going to apologize in advance for any spelling mistakes that may arise during this post, with good (enough) reason – that reason being too excited for words about this newly announced collaboration between Vault by Vans and one of my all-time favorite franchise Star Wars!

Earlier this year I was over joyed with excitement about the Vault by Vans collaboration with celebrity chef and restauranteur Chuck Hughes. When word broke out about the Star Wars collaboration, it gave me that same tingly feeling when two of my passions collide – in this case fashion and science fiction.

Vault by Vans has officially announced they’re collection of Star Wars themed shoes to be released in May 2014. The capsule collection will be available in 6 different styles, featuring storm trooper prints, and references to Yoda and Darth Vader. Each look borrows influences from classic Van’s silhouettes we are all mostly familiar with including the Sk8-Hi, Slip-on, Era and Half Cab.

This collection is a must have for any/all fanboys and fangirls of Star Wars or Vans. The collaboration speaks volume of the classic shoe brands efforts to introduce a diverse taste in footwear to a wide selective audience, without steering too far from what they are recognized for – classic, well crafted, distinctive, and beautiful footwear. The capsule collections is a prime example of the quality of work Vans produce – with their fans in mind.

Starting at $80, these intergalactic gems will be available online at VansDQM.com, starting May 3. May the Force be with all those who are as excited as I am about this Vault by Vans and Star Wars collaboration.
