Star Wars is arguably one of the largest and most passionate fanbases in the world of entertainment. There are Star Wars fans all over the world, from all walks of life, and the impact it has left on pop culture is immeasurable. The merchandise for the films have a life all their own, It’s in a class by itself. People will spend outrageous amounts of money, and wait in line all day just to make sure they have that action figure, mask, lightsaber, and what we’re taking a closer look at today, clothing and apparel.
There have been countless fashion labels that have put their spin on Star Wars clothing. Some have been seriously awesome, and others fell short. With droves of guaranteed customers, the second you put a Droid, Darth Vader, Leia in her metal bikini, or Luke Skywalker with a lightsaber on anything, the merch. goes flying off the shelves. The list of labels wanting to have a Star Wars line of clothing isn’t short by any means, so I’m counting down from the worst to the best of Star Wars inspired swag. Hope you enjoy it and feel free to debate or call me out if I missed one.

25. Star Wars x Sketchers
I have at the bottom of the list, the time that Sketchers and Star Wars decided to come together and create a line of shoes. Sketchers has never been a brand that neither myself or most people considered to be fashionable. The Star Wars shoes they released, certainly didn’t change anyone’s opinion. They’re unoriginal in literally every way possible. The shapes are either Vans or Converse rip offs. The designs emblazoned on the shoes aren’t original either. With the Star Wars logo repeated on one pair, and another pair a piece of the poster from “A New Hope.” They are flat out ugly, there was very little or no thought put into the making of the shoes. It seems to me whoever designed the shoes didn’t really care or want to make them look stylish. I can’t imagine someone put much thought into the creation of the shoes, and it shows.
