One of the most expansive brand collaborations that we’ve seen in 2020 is the ever-growing footwear catalog between Lucas Film’s beloved Star Wars franchise and adidas. In most recent memory, the two parties took the opportunity to celebrate the 40th anniversary of “The Empire Strikes Back” via character-inspired kicks resemblant of Chewbacca, Han Solo, and Darth Vader. Next month, the two are coming together again, but this time instead of relying on a specific character muse, they’re manufacturing an adidas Gazelle colorway inspired by the ancient and mysterious Darksaber.
Visually, these are come prepared exclusively with greyscale tones as stark black coats its suede base constructions and leather tongues, while metallic silver notes outfitted with lightning bolt patterns touch onto the stripes and heel overlay. Adjacent to the stripes, the saber’s moniker is spelled out where you would usually find the “Gazelle” name. Atop the insoles, an animated scene is printed across its entirety and displays a Mandalorian carrying the combat weapon while a crash-landed TIE fighter is pictured in the background. For those looking to cop, you can find these releasing on November 4th on adidas.com for $100 USD.
Elsewhere in sneaker news, Yeezy 380 Calcite Glow is dropping this weekend.
