Following the casting reveal of J.J. Abrams' Stars Wars: Episode VII film on Tuesday, Vans has announced the release of its new collection inspired by the original Star Wars trilogy.

The range of men's and women's shoes and apparel features Star Wars characters in fun prints, from Yoda blending in to a Hawaiian-style print to Boba Fett -- along with Death Star, Darth Vader and the Stormtrooper -- getting the camo treatment. With individual items priced between $17 and $70, the collection will be available this June at Vans stores and select retail locations.

The L.A.-based skater brand's premium line, Vault by Vans, will also launch two rare Vans prints that incorporate the film's iconic villains. The Miami print includes a collage of Imperial AT-ATs Walkers, while the Pirate design goes dark with Darth Vader and Storm Troopers in a skull-and-sword pattern. Only 300 pairs of the premium Vault styles (priced between $80 and $140) will be produced, so be sure to grab a pair when they become available, on May 4 (Star Wars Day, natch) at Vans stores in L.A., New York and Boston or on the Vans website.

Looks like becoming a Jedi (shoe) master won't be so difficult after all.
