Footwear Friday: Jedi Boots

Obi-Wan Kenobi (played by Ewan McGregor) gets to wear some quite dashing boots in the three Star Wars prequels. Somewhere between riding boots and WWI army boots, they are knee-high brown leather, in a couple of different variations. Here’s Variation 1, from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace ->

As you can see, they have several bands at the top of the boot.

The same style reappears in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith:

However, Obi-Wan also wears a “band-less” Version 2 of these boots in the third film:

Apparently you could buy a version of these at one time, although they are now out of stock:

It’s still worth checking the link, as it shows the “hidden” lacing inside the front panel.

Overall, a pretty swish item of footwear!
