After releasing something like 13 different sneakers together this year, you may have been wondering why George Lucas and his Star Wars brand failed to honor R2 D2 and C-3PO in their collection with adidas Originals. Having put together shoes for many of the staple characters, bots and ships part of the Star Wars empire, we were in question as to why there was nothing honoring the robotic friends.
As it turns out they weren’t forgotten, they were just held over for the continuation of the Star Wars x adidas Originals set to launch in the coming months. To pay tribute to the two galactic buddies, adidas and Star Wars produced a Top Ten Low using a 50/50 split with representation of R2 D2 on the outer side of the upper and C-3PO on the inner side. Graphics of both characters are also split between the tongue tags.
According to Freshness, the sneakers are set to launch sometime in September. What I really wanna though is, can I get an Ewok model next?
