Frequent collaborators adidas and Star Wars are once again joining forces on a soon-to-be-coveted footwear silhouette. This time around the German giant and the beloved sci-fi franchise are utilizing the former’s NMD R1 model. Although the hype surrounding the lifestyle sneaker has died down over the past few years, the forthcoming Star Wars x adidas NMD R1 V2 “Lando Calrissian” will surely resonate with both sneakerheads and Star Wars fans around the world.
The Star Wars x adidas NMD R1 V2 “Lando Calrissian” pays homage to the suave character and boasts the same color blocking as Lando’s outfit seen in The Empire Strikes Back. Spotlighted on the tongues is a photo of Lando, while the medial wall sports one of his famous quotes. Rounding out the final details are special lace jewels, branded insoles, and a special box.
Look for the Star Wars x adidas NMD R1 V2 “Lando Calrissian” to release overseas on September 17 at select adidas retailers. A stateside drop will follow on adidas.com. The sneakers will retail for $140.
