Star Wars and adidas have one of the most unlikely relationships in the world of sneakers. Since first joining forces back in 2010, the two have created some of the most playful shoes on the planet. With the new films bringing in a brand new army of fans, the collaborations have continued to roll out. Over the past few years, we’ve seen everything from Star Wars Storm Troopers to Darth Vader adidas collabs. Now, it looks like Boba Fett is finally getting his turn.
As one of the most mysterious characters in the Star Wars franchise, Boba Fett has long been a favourite of film fans. This latest Star Wars x adidas collab is inspired by Boba Fett, taking his armour as the key source of inspiration. An olive leather upper is complete with rips and tears to replica Fett’s distinctive look, with red detailing as referencing the armour. However, its the subtle details on this sneaker that really make it great.
The print on the sockliner depicts Boba Fett standing at Lando Calrissian’s base next to Darth Vader’s troopers. A pocket also comes attached to the ankle, with the iconic line “You can run, but you’ll only die tired” on the inside. On the heel, a printed tab references the patch found on Boba Fett’s armour. Custom Star Wars lace dubraes are attached at the bottom too for good measure. Even the packaging looks like a toy box, something Star Wars x adidas collectors know only too well.
If you like the look of these Star Wars-inspired adidas sneakers, then good news. The shoes will release on September 24th for around €100. The good news is that you don’t have to go to a galaxy far, far away in order to cop. They’ll launch at adidas and select retailers. Check out the official images below and let us know if you’ll add these to your rotation.
