Yeah, your read it right! Adidas Star Wars Collaboration! I read rumours about this but I thought it was only gonna translate in T-Shirts but it turns out that Adidas and George Lucas have made Trainers (Sneakers if you’re American). At first impressions it sounds like any StarWars fan-boys nightmare come to life (I’m not one of them) but in actual fact they are really fucking awesome! So awesome that they are bringing back the same delightful feelings as I had when i was a kid rocking my Chewbaka no named Starwars into primary school. Now thats Nostalgia!!!

Generally I have a problem with this sorta thing but only because I feel a lot of guys need to grow up a bit and stop playing with toys and dressing up like their favorite cartoons as a child but something about these kicks throw all of that resentment out of the window but only if this doesn’t become some kind of trend!

Anyway check them out – You’ve got the Dagobah’s, X-Wings, Vaders, Tie-Fighters, Storm-Troopers, Rebel-Alliance, M-Falcons, Death-Stars, That Big Massive robot dog thing and a Special Anniverary Type pair.

My faves personally are the Dagobah’s and X-Wings  (the former especially because they are based on an important part of the movie which provides some important life lessons).

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 Wars lexicon 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.
Characters 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.
Vehicles Pack
For this pack, we have taken inspiration from the well known vehicles and crafts from the Star Wars saga 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.
Direct Pack
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.

It seems Star Wars will never die.
