Uppers are done up in stark matte black leather, feature embroidered seams and are overlaid with a black patent leather Three Stripe graphic — all nods to the color and texture of Vader’s suit. “Superstar” is printed on the lateral quarter in red, and the red heel tab offers a Galactic Empire logo. Tongues feature a red, white and black portrait of the former Jedi, while insoles add another printed graphic.
Most notable on the top half are the rubber toeboxes, thanks to a textured embellishment of Vader’s mask and helmet that’s raised up off its base. Black metal lace deubres are interchangeable: wearers can choose between a “Star Wars” logo or a Vader helmet and Death Star combo. Finally, “I am Your Father” — The Empire Strikes Back‘s most famous line — can be seen printed under the translucent outsoles.
The Star Wars x adidas Originals Superstar “Darth Vader” will release on the adidas webstore come September 17. The MSRP is set at $120 USD.
