It probably won’t come as a surprise to you that I am a massive Star Wars fan. Well, not too massive – I wouldn’t attend a conference/convention on the subject, or purchase any collectible figurines, or spend my time writing Star Wars fan-fiction; but when it comes to the movies (or the video games), I am always up for another watching (or kicking your ass with my awesome Jedi skills).
So when I heard that Adidas had a new Star Wars clothing and shoe line I was pretty interested. Until I saw their commercial and was driven away for a few weeks. Check it out here (unfortunately I could not get the permissions to embed it into this blog, buts its worth a view for sure)
This commercial is a bit confusing upon first watch, but now I have come to appreciate it, if only for the wicked Imperial March remix done by Daft Punk. I love it, although its not nearly as terrifying as the original by John Williams!
After getting over my initial fear of the commercial I found myself surfing the Adidas website for the collection. The Mens shoes were all pretty decent looking, minus the Yoda boat-shoe (that has a certain “accountant-chic” feel to it). I wasn’t expecting much in the way of Womens shoes, until I found myself staring face-to-face with these :
I was in love! The bright colours and lovely gold accent drew me in, and despite having never worn a high-top (well “mid” game shoe, as they are called on the website), I was sure that I could pull these beauties off. I bought these shoes a couple of weeks ago for my birthday, and so far I have been quite happy with them.
How might I wear such a colourful pair of shoes?
Star Wars Tee, $27
American Eagle AE Women’s Skinny Jeans Worn Midnight, $30
Eastbay All Sport Sock – Gold, $4.99
adidas – Game Mid Princess Leia – Training Shoes, $80
Coral reef pearl and star bracelet, $195
I think I would wear this casual outfit if I owned that wicked awesome pink tee. Perhaps a gift for my next birthday? The best part about these shoes is that they add a pop of colour to my otherwise plain outfits. They work pretty well with straight legged and skinny jeans, and receive a lot of compliments from my star-wars loving friends. Can’t wait to see how they will go down in my hometown this summer…
