Can you believe that “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” is turning the big 40? To celebrate Adidas will be releasing a very special pair of Boba Fett footwear. Right now they are only listed on the UK site, but they should be coming to the U.S. Adidas very soon.
The Top Ten Hi Star Wars Boba Fett Shoes were announced this week by Adidas. The listing shows them going for £84.95 which is roughly $111 USD.
THIS ONE IS FOR BOBA FETT.
“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. The print on the sockliner shows him standing at Lando Calrissian’s base next to Darth Vader’s troopers. On the inside flap of the attached pocket, you’ll read his iconic line: “You can run, but you’ll only die tired.”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.“
The really cool thing about these shoes to me is that they come with worn spots, and a pocket. Are you kidding me? Why don’t all shoes have utility pockets!
