Yes, you read that headline correctly. I personally have never seen them before, but they do exist and Hake’s is selling these Darth Vader themed roller-skates in size 11-J. Show that little rollerskating Star Wars fan in your life just how special they are by getting them these bad-boys for their next skate party. Or maybe if you have small feet, you can cram your adult feet into them. According to Hake’s:
8.5x11x4.5″ deep box contains pair of unused roller skates by Brookfield Athletic Shoe Co. Inc. ©1983 Lucasfilm Ltd. Box shows photos of skate plus illustrations of Darth Vader and Emporer’s Royal Guards. Box shows moderate wear with creasing, color rubs and surface paper lifts. Fine. Skates are size 11-J and variety with laces rather than velcro. On a side of each is 2″ dia. circle with images of Darth Vader and Royal Guard while “Star Wars” name runs down the back of each skate as well as repeated on each wheel. Nice quality simulated leather skates are unused and Mint. A rather obscure Star Wars item. From the Tomart Archives.
