One of the downsides of being sick is not knowing whether or not something exists in real life or if you fever dreamed things. Last night I spent a half hour wondering if dogs, specifically bear Shar Pei puppies, knew how cute they were.
It stands to reason that my fever laden brain is not to be trusted in its current state. Which is why I had to spend some extra time on this from The Awesomer:
PO-ZU is a fantastic shoe company that started in 2006 and remains dedicated to sustainability. Which is why their shoe boxes double as seed trays and their shoes are made from biodegradable components, come in vegan and vegetarian options, and are made in their eco-friendly factory in Portugal. Their entire line of shoes are worth checking out! BUT. Their showstoppers are these guys. From the Po-Zu website:
Storming in to join Rey, Chewbacca and the Resistance, meet FINN - our next AW17 Star Wars I Po-Zu boot to be revealed - in three colourways…
Inspired by Finn’s boots, as featured in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The Finn Boot will be available for sale to the general public from August 2017 in both featured versions: In White (as worn by Stormtrooper FN-2187), in Distressed Metallic Bronze Leather (as worn by Finn), as well as in Classic Black.
Core features include protective padding, a concealed inside zip, a removable memory-foam Foot-Mattress (allows orthotics placement) in latex and cork, and a high performance grip natural rubber cup sole.
I’m sorry. Did you say “Storming in to join Rey, Chewbacca and the Resistance?!” THERE ARE MORE?!?!
Yes, Virginia. There are more.
But the true pièce de RÉSISTANCE are these GODDAMNED GEMS:
From the Po-Zu site, it looks like the shoes featured here will be available to the public this summer.
We are delighted to announce the launch of our Co-Branded STAR WARS™ / PO-ZU footwear collection for wholesale at this coming FFANY Shoe Show later this month.
Prepare to step into Star Wars: The Force Awakens galactic ride, wearing boots and sneakers from the first STAR WARS™ / PO-ZU collection. We are thrilled to present our official replicas of the footwear worn in the film by some of the main characters (under licence with Lucasfilm/Disney) alongside our Star Wars™-inspired models teeming with droids and spaceships.
Our founder Sven Segal is delighted to work on this project, saying “This is a fantastic opportunity for Po-Zu to bring high quality, ethically and sustainably-made shoes and boots to a wider market. Star Wars is an amazing brand and an enduring franchise.” .
The first ranges will be available for sale to the general public from August 2017.
You’re welcome. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to ponder if rocks feel feelings.
Also to find a way to get the Resistance sneakers. And to petition to get Captain Phasma silver motorcycle boots.
