Adidas has carried Star Wars fans brand new kicks themed off of one of the series’ most iconic characters which is launching new Chewbacca themed sneakers but they aren’t ordinary shoes because this pair is covered in fur.
“RROOAARRGGHH!” is one of his most well-known lines on ‘The Empire Strikes Back’. This reform of the classic Rivalry Hi is made to honor the 7’5 loyal Wookie: Chewbacca.
What feels like strands of Chewie’s hair sit on the upper of this Rivalry Hi, making this fan-favorite Star Wars character somewhat more palpable.
A piece on the tongue of the shoe gives a nod to the belt he wore on the ‘The Empire Strikes Back’. The sock liner has a print featuring him on it. The special packaging includes dedicated lace jewels and a poster.
All to celebrate the 40th Star Wars anniversary of Episode V. A clear choice to represent Chewie, the Rivalry silhouette was first shaped for the basketball courts in the ’80s before being adopted by the skateboarding, punk, and BMX scenes then ultimately becoming the streetwear icon it is today.
The Chewbacca sneakers is the latest Star Wars-themed item to hit the market.
