Everybody on the planet nerds out about something. Whatever that particular something is, they’ll run off at the mouth for hours with all the dusty dirt, dates, details, and demographics whether you want to hear it or not. Act like you could care less about their nerdiness, they get sensitive and what not. One the other hand, If you pull that on a Star Wars fanatic you liable to get your head busted to the white meat.
That said Star Wars people, The Adidas Imeprial Guard Stan Smith 80′s? As Ghostface would say, “Yo, That’s not a good look B. That’s not poppin for you son.” TJ Maxx and Marshalls wouldn’t even carry those joints. In actuallity, most would agree that the previous Adidas x Star Wars releases haven’t hit the mark outside of the DeathStar fanboys. That is up until now. Some where someone either A) put their head in the game and touched The Force or B) got fired, because the 2011 Star Wars x Adi union is rather fresh. Add the right character references to the look book concept and its a done deal.
The new line takes ques from the cocaine 80′s Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, when the Imperial Army gotted mobbed out by the Rebels for the planet Hoth. The designs are actually direct reflection of the iced out Hoth’d lifestyle. Loaded with Rebel and The Dark Side, the Darth Vader leather down is nice, as are The Hoth field jacket and the Fighter Pilot jacket.

For the footwear selection Darth Vader is repping for the Stan Smith 80s this time. The green + orange color way is setting it off for the Military styled Forum Mid. Then there is the Wampa Campus 80s, which may be a bit to Liberace for the average Jedi. On the other hand, if you’re really in touch with The Force, you’re styling on suckers.
