Po-Zu Rey Boot launch!Rey fans prepare to step into the Po-Zu’s latest Star Wars | Po-Zu co-branded footwear design, released for pre-order today, officially under licence by Lucasfilm and Disney. This is the latest in the range to be launched for SS19 ahead of London Fashion Week, joining the full Star Wars line, which includes screen accurate replicas next to fashion-led styles for every day.
There are less than 12 months until the release of the highly anticipated Star Wars IX film, but fans will be delighted to know that there is a lot to look forward to from Po-Zu.
Known for uncompromising design and comfort, Po-Zu has become a stalwart in the sustainable footwear arena, pushing the boundaries with sustainable materials and production practices since 2007.
The screen accurate REY Brown boot in wool tweed (as featured in Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and the newer, REY Hi brown leather boot (as seen in The Last Jedi), have since gathered international acclaim. The designs have been worn by stars and featured on Stacey Dooley's BBC1 Documentary on fashion, ITV This Morning, Keith Lemon's Celebrity Juice, The Observer, The Times, The Guardian, GQ, Vogue, Gizmodo, Nerdist, and more.
“There is something incredibly exciting about working with the Star Wars brand. Designing shoes which echo the ethos of the films and pave new frontiers,” says Sven Segal, Founder and CEO of Po-Zu.
“Linen is extraordinary in environmental and sustainability terms. It is one of the oldest and strongest in the world and incredibly underused. Not only is it 100% Vegan, it also offers excellent anti-microbial properties, lets your feet breathe, and cools you down in hot weather.”
“We lined the silver linen with organic cotton and added a silver cork heel counter and lacing loops. Cork is another highly sustainable fibre due to its natural and renewable properties and it’s grown locally to our factory in Portugal. The sole is made of natural rubber, tapped from a tree, and a coconut fibre ‘Foot Mattress’. The coconut fibre is a highly sustainable by-product of the coconut-trade. These two materials work together to mould to your feet, offer unparalleled comfort and absorb everyday knocks as you walk.”
