Star Wars, adidas to Release X-Wing Inspired Ultra BOOST in Lead-Up to “The Rise Of Skywalker”
December is going to be a battle of epic proportions. Not only will we be fighting the crowds to secure pairs from the epic Holiday 2019 lineup, but Star Wars will be wrapping up their nine-part Skywalker saga when The Rise Of Skywalker hits cinemas. To celebrate the occasion, the film franchise is linking with long-time partners adidas for a series of footwear pieces that will intrigue both sneakerheads and Warsies alike. We know of a few releases on the way, but only now are we getting to see first looks at the capsule, with this Star Wars x adidas Ultra BOOST S&L “X-Wing” the first to officially surface.
Arriving in a tonal grey makeup paired with bold pops of orange, the pair presents X-Wing Starfighter schematics imposed onto the suede heel-counter and BOOST midsole, along with other franchise-specific callouts, including “The Force Will Be With You Always” glazed onto the heel pulls, special graphic insoles and the symbol of the Jedi Order printed on the dubraes.
With the film set to debut on December 20th, you can expect these — and others from the Star Wars x adidas collaboration — to arrive on and around that date. Stay tuned into HOUSE OF HEAT for more info on the pack, which will be dropped on you when it’s hot.
