KICK IN STYLE WITH R2-D2 HIGH TOPS

There's no denying Chewbacca's lovability, but R2-D2 surely follows a close second. Not taking anything away from C-3PO of course, but R2-D2 has proven to be a loyal and trusted friend to many of the galaxy’s greatest heroes. Well, now you can roll like the galaxy’s favourite astromech with R2-D2 high top sneakers.

Available for pre-order for just £69 with every slated for August, the new R2-D2 sneaker is the latest in the range of co-branded Star Wars footwear by ethical shoe brand, Po-Zu, under license by Lucasfilm and Disney.

The legendary R2-D2 design is known around the world and Po-Zu has adapted his much-loved features to create a high top that is instantly recognisable.

The sneakers, made with organic cotton canvas upper, a coconut husk and natural latex FootMattress and Fair Trade rubber soles, follow the sustainability pillars on which Founder and CEO Sven Segal, began Po-Zu 11 years ago.

To get your R2-D2 on, simply visit the Po-Zu website.
