Adidas… Oh, you sneaky loveable bastards… Last month, iGT showed a glimpse of next years Star Wars themed collection from Adidas Originals and Lucas Arts. Now we finally get to see whole she-bang! While some of the sneakers and shoes are very subtle when it comes to it’s relations to the Star Wars universe like the Imperial AT-AT Walker high-top sneakers, some of the designs are quite in-your-face epic such as the X-Wing fighter pilot uniform, TIE fighter, and Planet Dagobah inspired shoes and clothing. The collection will be split into three different waves according to the theme type.

  • 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.

This epic collection is only the first season collection so it is safe to assume that there will be more to come. The collection will be available through Adidas Original stores and participating retailers. I personally will be dropping a shit load of credits to get some of these goodies. Will I wear them? I do not know. I am not sure I can handle some dumb Star Trek bastard accidently steppin’ on my kicks. Unless, she’s really cute. I’ll let it pass.

I love Star Wars merchandise. Especially Star Wars merchandise that is a mashed up with something that is iconic. One of the most iconic brands would have to be Adidas. Next year, Adidas will be releasing Star Wars themed shoes and apparel. Everything from snazzy kicks, t-shirts, and hoodies. The clothing is designed based on different signature aspects of Darth Vader, Han Solo, and the ever-so loyal Imperial Stormtroopers! Hopefully, there will be some retro-style track jackets in the future. I do love track jackets. Will I dare wear any of these cool clothes and get them dirty? HELL NO! Remember kids… even clothes can be collectible. Expect Adidas to release these in the first quarter of 2010. Hit the jump to check out a small glimpse into the Star Wars x Adidas collection.
