No images are available right now but we can reveal that the collection is inspired by the galactic saga, and will consist of limited editions as well as mass distribution footwear, apparel and accessories for men, women and kids. Classic Adidas Originals track tops and several legendary sneaker styles are represented with characters and scenes from the epic saga in reinterpreted versions. Darth Vader and Stormtroopers yo!
