Star Wars’ Boba Fett Comes To Sneaker Form With The adidas Top Ten Hi

Aug 25 2020

Star Wars and adidas continue celebrating the 40th Anniversary of “The Empire Strikes Back” with a Top Ten Hi inspired by Boba Fett. Unlike previously-seen pairs from this partnership, which include a Stan Smith for Luke Skywalker and NMD R1 V2 for Lando Calrissian, the latest collaborative sneaker embodies its muse. For starters, the once-basketball-icon covers its smooth leather in a combination of “Trace Green” and “Scarlet” borrowed from the bounty hunter’s custom Mandalorian armor. Detailing along the profiles also mimic said armor’s battle-scars, but are undoubtedly overshadowed by the brown attachable pocket on the lateral ankle; the inside flap quotes the helmed human: “You can run, but you’ll only die tired.”​ Elsewhere, “BOBA” branding appears on the tongue label and a graphic depicting Boba Fett next to Darth Vader’s troopers animates the insoles. A commemorative poster and swappable lace dubraes also come included in the special, action-figure-box-like packaging. No stateside release date is yet known, but this Top Ten Hi is launching in Europe on September 24th. In any case, enjoy official images of the pair ahead.
