It doesn’t need to be May the 4th to enjoy some Star Wars-inspired sneakers, does it? Whether you are a massive fan or want a pair of epic custom sneakers to round out your outfit for your next cosplay event in style, these custom Boba Fett Air Jordan 1 custom sneakers by @snkrs_by_dsignr might be the ones for you.
Unfortunately, when you click on the link to @snkrs_by_dsignr, the page seems to have been taken down, so we can’t enjoy them from the original profile, but @litlaces has us covered. We can still see the sneakers in all their glory.
The sneakers are perfect for Boba Fett’s distressed armour look, with silver weathering that looks like the paint is scuffed off the metal, an exciting and challenging aesthetic to accomplish considering that the sneakers are made of leather and what looks like suede panelling, so the fact that they achieved the look is impressive in its own right.
The outsole is a classic brown, while the midsole is painted to look like it might have been white once upon a time but has yellowed over time, thanks to the many adventures that Boba Fett has found himself on during his travels throughout the Star Wars universe.
The mudguard, mid lace stay panelling and upper lace stay panelling look like suede that is a little distressed and painted along the edges to resemble the scuff marks on Boba Fett’s predominantly dark, khaki green armour.
The red of the rim of Boba Fett’s visor is represented in the panel of the lower lace stays and the laces themselves, which are custom laces from @litlaces.
The yellow detailing and markings throughout Boba Fett’s armour, as well as his protruding shoulder pads, are represented on the heel counter of the sneakers, perfectly painted to show the distress marks as well, and a spec of black that makes it look like it might have deflected a bullet or a laser at some point.
The primary panelling of the upper is a distressed slate grey, perfectly matching the distress markings throughout the rest of the sneakers and possibly representing the shaft of the antenna that you can usually see on the right-hand side of his helmet.
Last but certainly not least, the prominent Nike Swoosh and the inner lining are a stark black compared to the muted colours of the rest of the sneaker, perfectly matching Boba Fett’s iconic visor.
Whether you are preparing for next year’s May the 4th celebration, gearing up for a Boba Fett cosplay, or want to wear a casual outfit with a nod to one of your favourite and most well-known characters in the Star Wars universe, these custom sneakers could be the ones for you.
Hopefully, @snkrs_by_dsignr come back online, or if you consider yourself a freelance social media FBI tracker, maybe you can find them and let us know where we can find these fantastic custom sneakers.
