May the 4th might be the fourth month of the fifth month to many, to Star Wars faithful, May the 4th be with you!
The unofficial Star Wars days has been celebrated many times by us over the years, but this year we wanted to highlight our absolute favorite Star Wars inspired and Star Wars licensed shoes from over the years. Since we ran our first feature celebrating Star Wars Day in 2009, there have been a ton of great Star Wars shoes released in partnership with Lucas Films and Vans and adidas, but have a look through the best Star Wars shoes of all time.Bun B x Greedy Genius Vader
Shoe: Bun B x Greedy Genius Cool Breeze “Vader”
The legendary Houston hip-hop OG, Bun B teamed up with underground brand Greedy Genius for their first ever collaboration. The shoe was introduced with a trill version of the Emperors March theme in a YouTube video that has since disappeared from the web. For those who remember the release, it put Greedy Genius on the map in a new way.
Bun B spoke with us about the collaboration.
“Black Patent was a must for me on this collaboration. I was really into black patent at the time. The shoe started getting designed and once we started looking at it, it was like, ‘If Darth Vader put these shoes on, these would go with his outfit. It actually matches with the clothing and mask.’ I wore this shoe with a suit and it was a perfect look. I didn’t even think of Darth Vader when I was designing the shoe with the black and gun metal, but the name was such a perfect fit.”
