Just in time for the year-end freeze to set in, the Adidas Originals line of Star Wars-inspired goods cranks the heat to 11. The Chewbacca boots and accompanying Manager's Coat ($200) are the perfect blend of geeky fashion to keep you in style. Plus, the shaggy faux fur lining on the boots, arms, and hood of the jacket will keep you toasty, even on the coldest Hothian Winters. How could you go wrong?
We've already seen this cast of characters appear in the first Adidas Star Wars Originals promotional video, but this time, Snoop Dogg, David Beckham, Daft Punk, and newcomer Jay Baruchel are re-creating the well-known cantina scene from Star Wars. It seems as if the crew is heading in to watch the World Cup, but before the action can get started, there's a scuffle at the bar. You know what comes next. My favorite line comes from Snoop Dogg (naturally) who exclaims "I don't like you either, fool!" to a fellow bar patron before busting out his lightsaber! Check out the video for a few laughs below.
We've already seen the shoes, but now we're getting a behind-the-scenes look at the ads that are being produced to promote the Adidas Originals Star Wars sneaks. We spotted a few celebs in the teaser trailer (like David Beckham and Daft Punk), but Snoop Dogg is up first, and he's making his way through NYC with a gaggle of Storm Troopers and the man himself — Darth Vader — to spread the word about these unique shoes. My favorite part? Catching a glimpse of a few of the shoes coming packaged like Star Wars figurines! Check it out below. I can't wait to see what they come up with next!
George Lucas already owns the word Droid, so he might as well start dabbling in other areas of consumer products, right? Meet the Adidas Originals Star Wars Edition Spring/Summer line. Inspired by characters and scenes from the Star Wars films, these shoes, specialty jackets, and tees will be sold starting today in limited quantities at Adidas Originals stores. You can find retailers online through the brand's amazing theatrical portal, which is fun to watch all the way through. The collaboration doesn't stop there though, as Adidas and LucasFilm are teaming up for a Fall/Winter 2010 line as well.
