adidas star wars helmet 02 adidas x Star Wars Stormtrooper Helmet By Freehand Profit

The Star Wars x adidas Originals collection has produced some interesting marketing efforts and even better kicks over the past few years, one standout having released this past February with a curious take on the bizarro white hat Stormtroopers.  The Star Wars x adidas Originals Superskate Mid ‘Stormtrooper’ was cast in white leather plus a neon camo print that was applied to the sockliner and the familiar helmet on their tongues.  This release was like much of the series in that it provided a breath of fresh air to a classic image, and as it turns out, the world hadn’t seen the last of the famous white helmet with a twist.  Created this one for StarWarsRemix, it’s hard to think of a better accessory to compliment the ‘Stormtrooper’ Superskates; how much will this one-of-a-kind piece prove to be worth?  Check out some more images after the jump then place your bids with freehandprofit57 on eBay.

Star Wars x adidas Originals Stan Smith 80s Mid ‘Darth Vader’

Is Darth Vader perhaps an understood character, someone so complex that despite his utterly evil acts, he might have a lighter side?  Seems unlikely, but as has been the case with the entirety of the latest Star Wars x adidas Originals capsule, this new adidas Stan Smith Mid 80s sees the Saga’s characters and symbols reimagined in new contexts.  For Lord Vader, it’s a white leather hightop serving as the base for his profile on the side panels, illustrations which, curiously enough, feature their fair shade of lightness to emphasize the depth of his helmet.  Barring an Episode IV.5, this is the closest you’ll get to seeing a ‘white hat’ Darth Vader, and you can find his Stan Smith 80s Mids at Shopadidas.

Rounding out the collection of footwear previewed in a series of playful photos was this new Star Wars x adidas Originals Campus 80s crafted to resemble the ferocious Hoth monster known as a Wampa.  The Campus is a simple silhouette so the horsehair uppers don’t seem quite as outlandish as on other designs, red and black somehow also furthering this strange balance between classic sport aesthetics and science fiction folklore.  Click through to get a better view of the ‘Wampa’ Campus 80s and get yours straight from Shopadidas.

Last time we saw these kicks, Han Solo was depicted wearing a pair while doing his laundry, perhaps subliminally suggesting that his kicks are hot enough to freshen up even stale old clothes.  Seriously, though, the latest adidas Originals x Star Wars collaboration is a clear example of this series moving in the right direction, the military-style olive green, black and blaze orange on this Forum Mid redefined with for a casual context by the white outsole.  Click through to see more angles and pick these up straight from Shopadidas.

The adidas Originals x Star Wars collection took a turn toward Space Balls with their promo materials for the fall season, key selections depicting Darth Vader as a crossing guard, Han Solo at the corner laundry and a wampa mowing someone’s front lawn.  It served as a reminder that these characters and a variety of details from George Lucas Saga have transcended their art form and become part of our cultural lexicon, just as the Star Wars x adidas Originals Skywalker ‘Hoth’ gives us a new perspective on the Decade Hi and the film series’ hero.  They’re based on Luke’s uniform on the planet Hoth and have just become available at Three Stripes retailers like End.

A short while back, Sneaker News scooped you on the release of an adidas Originals Superstar II designed in honor of the Rebel Alliance’s efforts at the Battle of Hoth.  It turns out those aren’t the only adidas x Star Wars models commemorating that epic fight, as the Star Wars x adidas Originals Forum Lo RS has just popped up in a black/grey/white design with red accents that evokes images of the AT-AT in a style not totally dissimilar from the Forum Mids it inspired last January.  So how do these compare to the other AT-AT kicks and various collaborative sneaker designs inspired by George Lucas mega-blockbuster series?  Click through to get a closer view and expect these at US Three Stripes retailers soon, as they’re starting to arrive at Asian retailers.  via SoleMovement

Star Wars x adidas Originals – Fall 2011 Collection

The adidas Originals x Star Wars collaboration has been going strong for several seasons now but never before have their combined efforts come together in such a markedly accessible way.  As the designers turned to the frigid planet Hoth for inspiration, the marketing department realized that with a bit of humor, you can reach beyond the Saga’s core following and help the less sci-fi inclined appreciate George Lucas’ signature work as contemporary mythology (it’s funny to see a wampa mowing the lawn even if you don’t know what one is!).  Reappropriating of symbols from the films in novel ways seems congruent with the evolution of this capsule, and you can see images of the entire set after the jump below.  Click through for images of the adidas Originals Stan Smith 80s Mid ‘Vader’, the Campus 80s ‘Wampa’, the Forum Mid ‘Military’ and the Decade Hi ‘S.W. Hoth’, along with a trio of jacket options and let us know which is the best.
