Star Wars sneakers from Adidas

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Monday, December 14, 2009

While there have been sneakers made that have been inspired by movies I don't think any film can claim to have an entire line created by a major shoe manufacturer. Adidas is getting prepared to release its line of sneakers and apparel inspired by the Star Wars movies and with a nicely times selection of a dozen shots showing what the end product will look like, suddenly I have three gifts that I want to give myself come January.

Adidas will release their Star Wars stuff in three waves: the Characters Pack, the Vehicles Pack and the Direct Pack.

  • the Characters 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"
  • the Vehicles Pack  takes "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"
  • the Direct Pack include sneakers inspired by the one and only Darth Vader and the Imperial Stormtroopers. Plus, there's a mid-silhouette shoe that looks like it draws its inspiration from the Slave Leia costume seen in Return of the Jedi. Mrrrow.

These goodies start to go on sale in specialty shops and shoe stories next month. Me, I've got eyes on the orange Skywalker, the bad-ass Stormtrooper and the TIE Fighter hi-tops. The question I now face: can I bring myself to wear them or must I pick up two pairs each?

See the entire selection of shoes and clothing here.

We were watching Al-Quaeda, and all this time our security services should have been keeping watch on Jakester's throbbing nutsack!-Dalton's chin dimple

You know...I gotta agree about the merchandising well they keep going to (personally I think the Lego Star Wars video game was the shark-jumper) BUT...these shoes look Awesome!! I need a Stormtrooper and maybe Darth.. Too bad there's no Boba Shoes with hidden missile attachment!

Oh shit, I never thought of a Boba one, that would have been sick. I can't find any pricing for the shoes.... Pat, do you know by any chance if ADIDAS has put a price tag on these yet?

I looked for prices and couldn't find them. My guess would be around the $100 mark, and that's not gonna stop me from buying those orange Skywalkers.

No matter where you go, there you are.
