One of adidas Originals’ all time classic shoes, the Superstar, gets the full Star Wars treatment and will be available in three colourways inspired by the movie. The Storm Trooper Superstar has an all white upper with a Storm Trooper making an appearance on the tongue, transparent sole and heel. The Darth Vader inspired Superstar trainer is all black with orange ascents and features the man himself on the tongue, transparent sole and heel too. There is a final Superstar which is all black with gold highlights and an embossed Star Wars logo on the upper.
