Star Wars x adidas Originals Clothing Line and Sneakers

Star Wars x adidas Originals - StormtrooperEveryone and their mother is freaking out about today’s release of the new Star Wars x adidas Origianls line of clothing and sneakers. While The Blot is not a huge shell toe sneaker kind of a guy, I can definitely get behind this adidas Originals x Star Wars collaboration way more than the previously released Mark Ekco line of Star Wars clothing. ADIDAS new chain of Originals stores are amazing and always have the best retro gear. Sadly there isn’t one in Houston, but when I’m out of town I always try to hit one up.

This stellar collection fuses iconic Star Wars characters and scenes with classic adidas Originals footwear and apparel silhouettes. Inspired by the galactic saga, the Star Wars collection consists of limited edition as well as mass distribution footwear, apparel and accessories for men, women and kids. Classic adidas Originals track tops, and several legendary sneaker styles are represented with characters and scenes from the epic saga in reinterpreted versions.

The collection for the first season is split into three packs -- The Characters Pack, the Vehicles Pack and the Direct Pack. The products in each pack take inspiration from the respective aspect of the Star Wars lexicon from legendary characters and crafts to classic scenes and fuse them with iconic adidas Originals silhouettes. The pieces will begin to hit all adidas Originals stores and other select retailers in January 2010.

The Characters 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. The Vehicles Pack takes inspiration from the well known vehicles and crafts from the Star Wars saga and translates them to our five most iconic adidas Originals sneakers and two key adidas Originals apparel models. And lastly, the Direct Pack features Darth Vader, the Stormtroopers as well as the Women's Game Mid silhouette that is inspired by Princess Leia, featuring gold detailing paired with a modern high-top silhouette with matching apparel.

The limited edition sneakers are going to be impossible to find and probably already sold out around the world. I’m currently on the hunt for a pair of either the Slave Leia sneakers or Yoda sneakers in size 14 or 15, but I’ve got a feeling my search is going to be pretty unsuccessful. What’s really cool about the limited edition Star Wars x adidas Original sneakers is that they come packaged in full color blister cards just like Star Wars action figures. How cool is that!
