Last year, adidas partnered with Lucasfilm and Disney for the adidas X Star Wars release featuring the adidas Alphaedge 4D. In celebration of the 40-year anniversary of the Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back release, the latest collection will be available from this weekend.
The latest range of sneakers features a list of iconic characters from the film itself. The extended list includes:
- NMD R1 V2 “Lando Calrissian”
- Stan Smith “Luke Skywalker”
- Superstar “Darth Vader”
- Top Ten Hi “C-3PO”
- UltraBOOST DNA “Yoda” and “Princess Leia”
- Rivalry Hi “Chewbacca”
While the extended range is available across the pond in the US, the collection hitting South African market includes the NMD R1 V2 “Lando Calrissian”, as well as the UltraBOOST DNA “Yoda” and “Princess Leia” sneakers.
Fans can channel their inner spirit of the strong-willed and courageous Princess Leia with the UltraBOOST DNA.
The Yoda-inspired UltraBOOST DNA takes its colour theme and textured upper, reminiscent of the iconic tunic and robe combination.
The upper on the two UltraBOOST DNA sneakers are crafted from a knitted material, with moisture-wicking yarn and has an open structure for additional breathability.
If you’re looking to switch on style, the adidas NMD_Rl V2 Star Wars sneakers bring the smoothness of Lando Calrissian. The sneaker draws from the world of adidas running, bringing with it the aesthetic of the NMD and the swagger of the captain himself.
Each of the sneakers features an inner sock liner for additional comfort, with glow-in-the-dark tongue label. To round off the look, each of the sneakers features icons and logos of the characters on the tongue, as well as a motif on the heel tab.
You can travel to a galaxy far away with adidas and Lucasfilm’s latest adidas X Star Wars collaboration, which is available online at adidas.co.za, as well as in-store at adidas Originals stores at Sandton and V&A Waterfront.
