It’s Gotta Be Luke’s Shoes!

Your feet finally get a way to express their Star Wars fandom

When he was originally writing Star Wars, George Lucas probably thought: “Skywalker,” that would either make a great name for my lead character, or a dope label for a fresh line of sneakers.

Now it is both.

Check out Adidas’s new collection of Star Wars shoes and apparel, the first batches of which are now on sale. There are shoes inspired by X-wings (pictured) and Stormtroopers, and hoodies boasting Luke and Vader fighting in an Adidas logo. We gotta admit, it’s all far cooler than any fashion item based on history’s greatest nerd franchise has any right to be. (Anyone not convinced of the collection’s street cred should check out this sweet commercial featuring Daft Punk, David Beckham and Snoop Dogg. Good job commercial, although you had us at stickball bat that sounds like a lightsaber.)

Although most of the line’s coolest shoes won’t be out until later in the year, you can now order a questionable hoodie that makes you look just a bit too much like Darth Vader. Thankfully the eventual Yoda shoes will make you look nothing like Yoda.
