STAR WARS ADIDAS BATTLE PACK: THE DETAILS
Athleticwear giant, Adidas, is ready to serve their audience a second running with their Lucasfilm collaboration—“Space Battle.”
Three of Adida’s popular running styles will headline the release, including Ultra Boost S&L, Ultra Boost 2019 and Alphaedge 4D.
The sneakers are inspired by the Star Wars enterprise starships—the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire. The sneaker and movie series collaboration will allow one to lace up, while representing a significant element of the Star Wars tale.
Spoiler alert—the three are inspired by X-Wing Starfighter, Millenium Falcon, and The Death Star.
Starting out the first of the pack is the X-Wing Starfighter model, which will be released in Adidas very own Ultraboost S&L line.
The Lucasfilm collaboration is evident in the stark similarities of the sneaker’s colorway with the Star Wars ship’s grey and orange artillery and its structural outer.
Adhering the glow-in-the-dark feature, the X-Wing Starfighter features the iconic three stripes in a bright orange metallic finish on a grey shiny mesh from toe to rear.
The sneaker sits on the ever-popular boost technology, while iconic quotes like “STAY ON TARGET” and “THE FORCE WILL BE WITH YOU, ALWAYS” on the heel.
The Alphaedge 4D sneaker is a technological innovation like no other.
Typically designed for running, the silhouette features a 4D Futurecraft midsole which is constructed using a revolutionary digital printing process that essentially converts liquids into solids.
Thus, the Alphaedge is the world’s first performance sneaker made of liquid resin and oxygen. At first glance, the sneaker looks like it teleported here from a galaxy far, far away—thus, the most appropriate for a Star Wars collaboration.
The Death Star, if you’re a fan of Star Wars you know the name as the story’s most notorious space station. If you’re not a fan, you will at least appreciate the stark color contrasts and the detailed design.
Another glow-in-the-dark sneaker, but features a space dark midsole with the pale green outsole. A couple Star Wars fitting quotes had to be imprinted, stating “THAT’S NO MOON” and “THE POWER OF THE DARK SIDE.”
Last but not least, The Millennium Falcon is showcased in the Ultraboost 19 line to allow another Star Wars starship to live on forever in the sneaker universe.
Sporting a white toe and a metallic yard makeup, the grey metalized cage where the Adidas branding is located sits on the graphic-designed boost sole. Finally, a grey and blue finish brings in the rear with Adidas branding on the tongue to finish the look.
Following the trend of its other two counterparts, the Millennium Falcon contains popular Star Wars quotes, such as “JUMP TO LIGHTSPEED” and “NEVER TELL ME THE ODDS.
STAR WARS ADIDAS LIGHTSABER RECAP
The Star Wars Adidas Battle Pack is only the second offering from the recent teamwork between Lucasfilm and Adidas.
In fact, the Star Wars collaboration is a line that will release in three parts: a lightsaber package, starships package, and the last will feature the superstars from the beloved Star Wars tale.
Earlier in the month of November, the Lightsaber-themed pack hit Adidas store.
Houston Rocket’s James Harden line, Harden Vol. 4, was one of the three in the Lightsaber pack.
The sneaker boasts a speckled purple colorway that immortalizes the lightsaber wielded by Samual L. Jackson’s character, Mace Windu, during the prequel trilogy.
Portland Trailblazer superstar Damian Lillard also made a splash in the pack, paying homage to Luke Skywalker’s green lightsaber with his Dame 5.
More specifically, the green lightsaber was used by Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode VI—Return of the Jedi once he loses his blue lightsaber from Star Wars: Episode V—The Empire Strikes Back.
Rounding out the pack is Derrick Rose’s D Rose 10, which comes in the blue colorway. Thus, symbolizing the blue lightsaber that was wielded by numerous characters throughout the saga.
