US retailer Stride Rite Children’s Group has launched its new Star Wars footwear collection in all its stores and with wholesale partners.

The collection, part of a multi-year license with Lucasfilm, includes lighted character-inspired shoes, and retails between US$35 and $54.

"The addition of the Star Wars collection to stride rite’s product assortment provides kids with exciting new shoes based on some of their favorite characters and gives moms the quality and fit they trust from stride rite," said Sharon John, president of Stride Rite.
