The adidas Originals x Star Wars Collection continues this fall/winter with five new Star Wars inspired sneakers from adidas. The first is the Han Solo SL-72 sneaker which is based on the scene in The Empire Strikes Back where Han is frozen in carbonite. It’s a pretty cool idea if you ask me, and the shoes actually come with a silver cover so you can freeze your sneakers in carbonite too!
While the Han Solo in Carbonite SL-72s are The Blot’s personal favorite, I’ve got a feeling a lot of Star Wars fans will be going crazy over the Droids Top Ten Low, which features the most popular droids in the galaxy, R2-D2 and C-3PO. Each sneaker is split down the middle, with the outside representing R2-D2’s blue, white and silver color scheme and the inside resembling C-3PO’s gold and black colors. If you notice in the photot, inside the adidas stripes you can see wiring that looks like 3PO’s midsection.
Rounding out the adidas Originals x Star Wars Fall/Winter 2010 sneaker collection is a green Metro Attitude sneaker inspired by Jabba the Hutt, a furry brown Jogging High sneaker inspired by Chewbacca, and a Boba Fett inspired ZX 800 sneaker. Adidas did an amazing job with colors of the ZX 800, it really does look just like Boba Fett’s armor.
While the Han Solo in Carbonite SL-72s are my favorite because of their creativity and uniqueness, these Boba Fett sneakers are the shoes I’m most likely to buy! The adidas Originals x Star Wars Fall/Winter 2010 Collection should start showing up in adidas Originals retail locations sometime in September, so be on the look out.
