The adidas Nizza Joins Annual Star Wars Celebrations
Star Wars Day is upon us yet again for May the fourth, with all the usual celebrations from the galaxy far, far away. And while there are plenty of fun ways to acknowledge this international event, sneakerheads know it’s all about what’s below the ankles.
The footwear industry boasts a proud history of weird and wonderful sneakers designed in the Star Wars theme, and last year we even put our thinking caps on to conjure up a list of wild colabs we’d love to see. And while that list might stay trapped in imaginations for now, moving slower than a sarlacc’s digestive system, adidas have been busy in recent years pumping out a whole bunch of official Star Wars schemes.
This latest design, on the underrated Nizza, is one of the more playful of the range, which normally focuses on just one character – including recent renditions for Princess Leia, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Yoda, Chewbacca, and Darth Vader.
Here, the Nizza features cartoon images of both the dark and the light sides, with Darth Vader pushing Stormtroopers in homemade billy carts, while Princess Leia flies around on a speeder at the encouragement of an enthusiastic ewok.
Pairs of this playful Star Wars x adidas Nizza are available right now via select Trefoil retailers, including ,Finish Line.
