Adidas Brings Star Wars To A Street Corner Near You

  • Pin it

You remember those Darth Vader worthy sneakers Adidas came up this season? Now just by looking at their cleverly masterminded commercial clip I’m sure they’ll make a sales hit with those kicks I could only wear at night, because one cannot see very well and thus one cannot be blinded by their ugliness.

Anyways, there goes the 60 seconds Adidas Star Wars ad with David Beckham, Calle 13, Daft Punk, DJ Neil Armstrong, Snoop Dogg and, of course, Lord Vader himself! Are you ready for the dark side of kicks? (on a side note – I really love the Imperial March mix!) (you can see some of the ad print images right after the jump!) (via)

I can’t help it: don’t mess with Lord Vader! He’ll even take your reflection away from you! Earthly things, like Adidas and stuff still see their own image in a mirror… (Big Photoshop Trouble I sense!)

This will go over big with the collectors and the Star Wars buffs!
The ad is nifty, I like Adidas ads, I really loved their “house party” ad and the music they used in it.

The runners on the bottom really do bring to mind the At-At walkers.

Sorry ladies, when I see shoes, boots or footwear ads all I can think about is walking comfortable at the moment. My old Adidas doesn’t walk comfy either and are “out”…:(

yeah, they do look like the At At walkers but remind me so much of a vintage Reebok edition..

You’re right, Adriana, comfort is the most important thing when talking about shoes! Too bad we forget about it so often! I have loads of brands I don’t buy from because I once bought shoes from them and felt miserable so I decided I have to move on, find a better cut, someone who knows how to treat our feet royally! and as promising as they sound, a flat sole UGG doesn’t make me jump for joy! Howeveeeerrr, I know the mighty ugly Crocs feel heavenly on tired feet. So.. give it try? they have winter models too (can’t believe I’m actually saying this!)!

LOL! Crocs! I can’t believe that I jump up and think: YES!!!! A flat sole UGG made me limp and in pain. And my beautiful designed and expensive boots with a comfortable heel are “objects” to look at for how long? It feels like for forever. :((
Feet are so precious how I realise that now having an ugly back pain because of the way I’ve to held me foot all day and walk strange….
Alexander McQueen nor any other idiot designer with their crazy dangerous over-the-top high heels has to show up in my sight: I go berserk! Luckily for them I live in another world……

I have had good advice now from a dancer. She teach dance all day. She knows all about feet and injuries. Hear her about TOO high heels or TOO flat soles…..I believe her!
