Adidas new Boba Fett shoes will please the Mandalorian in you
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is turning 40-years old today. And to celebrate, Adidas has launched a special pair of Intergalactic bounty-hunter Boba Fett approved shoes.
The new drop are only listed on the UK site on what might have been a small error in timing, however we expect them to go global later today.
The shoes cost around AED400 (or US$110).
The shoes are pretty minimal, but ape Fett’s armour colourway. The red and yellow details are a nice touch. Here’s what Adidas’ has to say about them:
“A redesign of the Top Ten Hi silhouette to honour the mysterious bounty hunter with few words and many fans. A special colourway with the same hues that made Boba Fett stand out from his imperial mates.”
Debuted in 1979, just one year before the release of “The Empire Strikes Back”, the Top Ten Hi was first designed for high performance on the basketball courts. It is one of the most celebrated adidas streetwear silhouettes today and its minimal design makes it a perfect representation of Boba Fett. It even has holes that allow the skin to breathe just like his armour.”
”Whether you’re part of his fan club or an admirer of the Top Ten Hi heritage, this piece celebrating the 40th Star Wars anniversary of Episode V is worth adding to your collection. A poster and Star Wars lace jewels are included in the special packaging of this shoe.“
New Boba Fett shoes should be out later today.
