Star Wars-inspired shoes are hardly a new thing. In fact, my closet currently houses Star Wars-themed shoes from both Vans and Crocs. Over the years, other players have been in the game as well, with brands like Adidas and Sketchers in the mix, but until now the folks at SPERRY have been patiently awaiting their trip to a galaxy far, far away. Officially announced this week, STAR WARS x SPERRY is a celebration of the 40th Anniversary of 1977's STAR WARS (aka STAR WARS: EPISODE IV - A NEW HOPE), with a collection of five all-new pairs of shoes that take specific inspiration from the film that started it all. These will be available beginning August 10, exclusively from Sperry...

I love a lot of different shoes, by VANS are hands-down my favorite brand, period. Add into the mix their collaborative efforts with bands (SLAYER, METALLICA, KISS, IRON MAIDEN, etc.) and brands (STAR WARS, DISNEY) and it's stuff-I-love overload. Coming off the heat of their VANS x STAR WARS Collection (a line that I have a couple different pairs of), VANS x Disney brings forth some new shoes for the whole family, and they're loaded with characters that generations have known and loved - Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Minnie, Pluto and more. There's accessories, too (I almost just bought some Donald socks), and to celebrate the release, Mickey himself just made an appearance at the Vans US Open of Surfing.

STAR WARS Day is the celebration of Fandom for all-things relating to "a galaxy far, far away," and if there's one thing that STAR WARS is synonymous with, it's merchandising. George Lucas pretty much single-handedly set the standard for Pop Culture merchandising in the late 1970s, licensing his creations for the gold standard in collectibles, the original 12 Kenner Action Figures. Now, under the Disney umbrella, the onslaught continues, with an exclusive line of merchandise rolling out at Disney Store today, but with other retailers and licensees getting in on the May 4th Action. Below is an assortment of STAR WARS deals from around the web, most of which even Watto would approve.

Rather than going the Free Download route, they're streaming the 16-track collection via YouTube (embedded on The Rock Father below), while offering physical copies at the Victory Booth at the Vans Warped Tour.
