A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… someone created plain, boring white socks. But if we blast into hyperdrive and travel to today, May 4 (better known as Star Wars Day), we’ll find that socks have had quite the evolution. What was once a boring part of your wardrobe has transformed into an important style statement. Eastbay finds your lack of sock swag disturbing so they’re here to help with Stance Star Wars Socks. And no, it’s not a trap—these are the real deal. We’ve got styles with all the best characters from the series: Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Yoda, R2D2, and Jabba the Hutt. So choose whether you’ll join the light side or dark side, and may the force be with you always.
Timeless entities from different worlds continue their ongoing partnership with the brand new adidas Originals x Star Wars collection. Since their first collaborative effort in 2007, adidas and Star Wars have managed to provide one of few bridges between fanatics of both sneakers and the popular movie franchise. The tradition continues with new footwear and apparel from the collection available today.
The Force is strong with the Darth Vader-inspired Ultrastar, which features a premium black leather upper with the helmet of the original trilogy’s chief antagonist worked into the shell toe. Red takes care of the inner liner, Three Stripes and laces, which are complemented by gold ‘STAR WARS’ lace jewels. Perhaps a nod to the hip-hop roots of adidas Originals, Run DMC-style Star Wars branding appears on the heel of each shoe.
Accompanying Darth Vader will be Stormtroopers, represented by a white-based colorway of the adidas Originals Superskate. This remix of the Superskate makes use of tonal markings throughout the upper, but gives the shoe plenty of pop with colorful graphic work on the inner liner, tongue, heel and lace tips. Taking care of things below is a translucent outsole, which once again reveals colorful graphics on the underfoot.
The new adidas Originals x Star Wars Collection is available to purchase in limited quantities at Eastbay.
