After months of speculation and much anticipation, the time has finally come for the Irregular Choice 'Star Wars' collection. It's a huge collaboration which is likely to appeal to long-time Irregular Choice fans whilst reaching a whole new audience that probably didn't know such exciting and innovative footwear was possible! I'm in the camp of knowing very little about Star Wars, but the characters are so iconic, that they are instantly recognisable even to those that have never seen the films. My knowledge and experience of footwear on the other hand...well we all know that one! So what do we know about this special range?
A range of 14 different styles for women (or guys that can fit them) featuring characters from Star Wars or iconic items (ahem lightsabers). They really have tried to cater for everyone with flats, heels and boots. Much of the collection has been kept under wraps, but we've seen five pairs in teasers over the past couple of months and I've included those in this post. Some are traditional 'character heels' while others have special effects such as sounds or lights.
The collection will launch at 12pm (UK time) tomorrow (Friday 30th October).
The range will be available online, in all Irregular Choice stores and select stockists such as Schuh will have some styles. There's a special launch event to be held at the Carnaby Street store at 12pm.
£195 for the likes of R2D2, obviously increasing with the more bells and whistles they have and how limited they are. I believe the maximum price is around £300. I don't know for sure how much the pumps will be, but cheaper than the heels.
All the inners are a purpley colour with multi-coloured shimmer throughout like a galaxy and both brand names are embroidered inside. Some styles feature embroidered 'Star Wars' on the uppers too. Most of the soles include prints of characters from the movies such as Han Solo, Yoda and Darth Vader, though the lightsaber heels for example are rubber soled with no image. The Death Star boots (above) are a pair; one heel Darth Vader, the other a stormtrooper. I'm hoping to get a pair of the heels, but nothing is set in stone yet, so we shall see. Are you planning on buying any tomorrow, what do you think of the collection?
