“May the force be with you” this November! You’re going to need it to cop the new Adidas Star Wars sneaker collection. If you haven’t heard already, Adidas just made possibly the greatest sneaker collaboration in the galaxy. Adidas joined forces with the American epic space series, Star Wars. This won’t be the first time Adidas gets inspired by our favorite shows and movies. Any Sneaker collaboration nowadays goes beyond designers, artists, and athletes; you never know how far they would go. In this case, Adidas is apparently aiming for the stars in this out-of-this-galaxy collab.
Also, Adidas previously drew inspiration from shows like Game of Thrones, Pokemon and even Dragon Ball Z (but that one was a real flop).
The Sneaker Collaboration that Let Goku Down
So, last year Adidas revealed their new sneaker collaboration with the Japanese anime TV series, Dragon Ball Z. Now that sounded pretty damn awesome! You’d expect that they’d come up with some savage looking colorful sneakers to represent the epic manga that everyone loves.
You were wrong! We all were.
A lot of sh!t went down with that collab, and the sneakers went down with them. They were very disappointing, to say the least.

People even went as far as showing Adidas how it was supposed to be done! Illustrator and designer Chad Manzo took it a step further by showing them how Nike could’ve done it. Savage!
So, they didn’t go Super Saiyan as they expected; and so they tried again with Game of Thrones.
Claiming the Iron Throne
Later that same year, Adidas decided to catch the wave of hype from the infamous HBO series, Game of Thrones. They revealed the collection in 3 different capsules representing three main houses: House Stark, House Lannister, and House Targaryen. In addition, they had three sneakers for the white walkers, the night’s watch and the dragons! It all sounds pretty awesome and good so far.

The sneakers were a different take on the iconic Ultraboost, and to be honest, they looked pretty awesome! They even had the house words on the tags!
The Adidas Game of Thrones sneaker was, in theory, better than the Dragon Ball Z, but they didn’t do so well on resale platforms either. And in this game, if it doesn’t flip for much they don’t mean much. Sorry!
It might be because of what happened in the season finale of Game of Thrones! No one wants them anymore!
Adidas Star Wars: A New Day, A New Beginning
Redemption? Maybe. Adidas Star Wars collection features three different capsules in different Star Wars themes. We got the Lightsaber-themed pack first which came out on November 1st which was pretty awesome. It featured 8 different lightsaber-inspired Adidas Basketball silhouettes to represent a lightsaber of a character in the hit series!
But next up we have the Space Battle pack which drops on November 21st followed by the Characters pack on November 29th!
Each pack seems to have a character and backstory of its own, and we’re living for it. So, let’s hope this Adidas sneaker collab isn’t a complete flop. Darth Vader would probably not be impressed by our disturbing lack of faith. See what we did there?
Then again, if they do flop, you could always opt for some Yeezys! Just sayin’, you never know! There’s a whole new Yeezy lineup for the fourth quarter that’s sick as hell! So you should definitely cop one of them and while you’re at it, maybe you should read a guide so you could cop like a pro!
So, in the words of the great Obi-Wan Kenobi “In my experience, there is no such thing as luck”… guess we can’t wish you good luck this time!
