This is the first I'd heard about the limited edition Star Wars x Adidas Super Stars sneakers (do people still say sneakers? I do) but apparently they came out a couple months ago and were limited to 800 pairs per side of the force (that's 800 dark side, 800 light side). So they're probably already snatched up. I looked on eBay and nada. So, yeah, I guess I'm gonna have to write a couple threatening letters to Adidas to send me a pair.

Great attention to detail was taken by Adidas for these sneakers. The "Yoda" Super Stars feature a hemp upper much like something the Jedi Master wore on his home planet of Dagobah. In addition to the good choice of colors and materials, Adidas also covered the lace tips in the neon green color of Yoda's lightsaber. The "Darth Vader" Super Stars takes inspiration from the characters mask. The parallel lines on the side are like that covering Vader's mouth and the black patent leather to represent the glossy finish. Again Adidas finished off the kicks with red lace tips to match Vader's lightsaber.

Okay, so I just found a place that had been selling them (sold out now) for $275. Which, around here, is the same price as 11 mediocre lap dances (22 on buy one get one free night). And, honestly, which would feel better on your weary soles(!)? The prosecution rests.

Hit the jump for a ton more pictures of both the Vader and Yoda models.

Are those for real? They look like bad bowling shoes.

I don't think I'd feel like a "Super Star" in those, unless the connotation for "Super Star" is similar to that of "Special".

Not exactly what I'd want out of some Star Wars shoes. I think Nike could do a much better job of something like that.

Words on shoes is second to pictures as a big no no.

Shoes are about design. The could have used colors and patterns to represent Star Wars.

They didn't need "Super Star" in font on the back.

Here's a better example of how to work SW (tastefully) into fashion. It's too bad they're rare.

Ecko.. they were very limited, spotty distribution. Your only hope is getting one off ebay for $250.

I wear SW t-shirts from time to time, but I draw the line at sneakers.

When I saw the title of the thread I got excited. I loved the Adidas Tron shoes I have and they made a bunch of other awesome nostalgic shoes... but these? THESE??? SUPER STAR???? You have to be kidding me. Easy pass. They look like knock-off shoes.

Are these really licensed? They don't even have "Star Wars" anywhere on them. Seems more like some kind of knockoff.

I'm continuing to check out the license on these but many sites are claiming its legit. Nothing mentioned on Star Wars Official sites though that I can log.


So you might want to consider these. They are about Star Wars. They use the Star Wars font, legally, and have the classic and proven chassis of the Adidas Super Star going-outside shoe for sporty people as a base. They will be ideal for putting on your feet and placing beneath any PC desk for 12 hours at a time.

Wise move. I got it from that same seller, several months ago. The original MSRP was $99 or so, but she's really the only one stocking them anywhere online.

They run small. XL fit me perfectly being L. Don't be surprised if yours has tattered edges on the stitching. I think it's intentional "weathering."

Those shoes are pretty lame. But that Boba Fett hoodie is just amazing! I wish I had the money for one of those.
