The on-going Star Wars collection by adidas Originals has given us some great kicks, from the “Luke Skywalkers” in 2010 to the “Boba Fett” kicks recently. The most head-turning release to date may just now be releasing in thse Stand Smith 80s Mid modeled after the Imperial Guards. Donning a red-all-over color scheme, this sneaker mixes patent leather, nubuck and most notably, velvet. A sleek black triangle can be seen on the heel as a literal translation of the guards’ helmets. These kicks are available now at select shops like UNDFTD and are sure to incite conversations with more than just Star Wars fans.
