Star Wars collection of shoes and apparel for spring/summer line

According to StarWars.com, the first season collection will be split into three packs:

  • Characters Pack: This pack takes the most iconic moments and characters from the Star Wars saga and brings them to life across five sneakers, two short sleeve T-shirts and the Superstar Track Top.
  • Vehicles Pack: For this pack, we have taken inspiration from the well known vehicles and crafts from the Star Wars saga and translated them to our five most iconic adidas Originals sneakers and two key adidas Originals apparel models. Across these models we have paid homage to the distinguished features of airborne crafts and land based vehicles from both sides of the Force and executed them to appeal to both adidas and Star Wars fans alike.
  • Direct Pack: Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers appear in this pack as well as in the Characters pack. Also, the Women’s Game Mid silhouette that appears here is inspired by Princess Leia, featuring gold detailing paired with a modern high-top silhouette with matching apparel

Is it just me or do these look less high-tech and more space ghetto? Um, these gold sneakers pictured above are supposedly inspired by Princess Leia. Yeah right, you mean Princess Leiqueefa. And the Darth Vader shoes? Super lame.

If I had to make a choice, these would be okay.

Star Wars line will hit select Adidas stores January 2010.
