Can only one ray of light save the universe?.....well depends if the person wielding the ray wears Adidas. The almighty force is with the three striped one again here's a preview of the forthcoming Star Wars Adidas footwear range due for release through out this year. The collection is broken into two parts the ‘Select Pack' and the 'Direct Pack'. The 'Select Pack' is closely modeled on characters from the original 1977 20th Century Fox film franchise that stared Alec Guinness as Obi Wan Kenobi and Harrison Ford as Han Solo and the ‘Direct Pack' fuses the Star Wars universe with this eras modern Pop and Sports icons. Does that mean you can expect Micheal Jordan wielding a light saber design fat chance, does that mean Micheal Jackson and Lady Gaga will be dressed up as Jedis fighting Darth Bieber I highly doubt that too; but you can look forward to some amazing designs. Highlights include a AT-AT Pilot El Dorado with a jumbo tongue similar to the Jeremy Scott Mickeys; a vividly detailed Skyline with the urban skyline replaced by an illustration of the Imperial planet Coruscant; and a deathly dark ZX-8000 with crackling energy beams on the midsole representing Emperor Palpatine. There's also a nod to the Imperial Guard, a rasta Boba Fett mash up, plus some Ewing inspired Storm Trooper ballers.
