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.
