adidas Originals x Star Wars - Spring/Summer 2010 - Footwear Collection
George Lucas has been a merchandising genius for quite some time. In his latest, extremely extensive collaborative effort between galactic juggernaut Star Wars and terrestrial brand adidas, we see 13 versions that should make for some exciting convention banter among the Star Wars enthusiasts.
Some standout models include the Micropacer model complete with shots from the film (including a light saber battle), a shiny silver upper, and a red white and blue midsole–all representing the more extreme side of the collection.
Lucasfilm Ltd. and adidas Originals have teamed up to release models that will start releasing in January 2010 in both general and extremely limited releases.
More muted models include the black and red Darth Vadar Shelltoe model with simple accents, a black on black Super Death Star Shelltoe, the orange Skywalker model, and the impressively-styled Stormtrooper with puffy stripes.
Besides this heap of releases shown here, adidas is also releasing Star Wars-themed apparel.
