Shirts, Shoes, & Track Suits
By Dave Campbell | January 21, 2010
Not so long ago (The end of 2009) news came that a line of Star Wars shoes would be coming out from Adidas combining their own retro styles aesthetically inspired by the classic space saga from a galaxy far far away.
Adidas has unveiled this said awesomeness backed by an Imperial Death March remix via full length commercial (featuring David Beckam & Snoop Dogg…WTF?) and webpage . I personally want the Tie Fighter, and Luke Skywalker shoes…man I’m geeking out over these!
Do the same by checking out the details below:
The collection for the first season is split into three packs — The Characters Pack, the Vehicles Pack and the Direct Pack. The products in each pack take inspiration from the respective aspect of the Star Warslexicon from legendary characters and crafts to classic scenes and fuse them with iconic adidas Originals silhouettes. The pieces will begin to hit all adidas Originals stores and other select retailers in January. Also, look out for a very special web application announcing the adidas and Star Wars collaboration which will hit the internet within the next couple of weeks. Below is an overview of the products within each pack.
This pack takes the most iconic moments and characters from the Star Wars saga and brings them to life across five sneakers, two short sleeve T-shirts and the Superstar Track Top.
For this pack, we have taken inspiration from the well known vehicles and crafts from the Star Warssaga and translated them to our five most iconic adidas Originals sneakers and two key adidas Originals apparel models. Across these models we have paid homage to the distinguished features of airborne crafts and land based vehicles from both sides of the Force and executed them to appeal to both adidas and Star Wars fans alike.
Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers appear in this pack as well as in the Characters pack. Also, the Women’s Game Mid silhouette that appears here is inspired by Princess Leia, featuring gold detailing paired with a modern high-top silhouette with matching apparel.
