Adidas is launching the latest installment of the brand collab with Lucasfilm - the Adidas x Star Wars Space Battle-themed pack. And damn, these are nice on the eyes.
The second offering of the multi-chapter collection comes in three key running models: The Ultraboost S&L, Ultraboost 19 and Alphaedge 4D. Inspired by the starships of the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire, the trio celebrates a revered element of the Star Wars story, now in footwear form.
The X-Wing Starfighter inspired Ultraboost S&L footwear leads the pack, donning a colour palette reminiscent of the ship’s grey and orange artillery and outer shell. Adidas calls this “The Most Responsive Shoe in the Galaxy” and it comes equipped with glow-in-the-dark elements, semi-shiny engineered mesh and metalised stripes, making it a standout in low-light environments. A leather cage sits atop a Boost sole and the style is finished with iconic quotes like “STAY ON TARGET” and “THE FORCE WILL BE WITH YOU, ALWAYS” on each heel’s webbing.
The Millennium Falcon inspired Ultraboost 19 footwear immortalises yet another iconic starship. Owning a grey and blue finish, the silhouette comes with a metallic yarn makeup, matte metalised cage, metalised heel counter, and illuminative elements. Similar to its Ultraboost counterpart, the style comes emblazoned with notable phrases like “JUMP TO LIGHTSPEED,” and “NEVER TELL ME THE ODDS.”
Finally, rounding out the pack is The Death Star focused Alphaedge 4D shoe, which pays homage to the film’s most notorious space station. Its glow-in-the-dark elements are fused with a knit, metallic-yarn upper that's fixed to the shoes 3D-printed 4D midsole. Collectively, the style dons an infamous laser green and space black colorway, finished with “THAT’S NO MOON” and “THE POWER OF THE DARK SIDE” slogans.
The Adidas x Star Wars Space Battle-themed pack will be available at select Adidas stores and on ecom from today at the following retail prices: Ultraboost S&L and Ultraboost 19 at R2 999, and Alphaedge 4D at R4999.
