I recognized your foul stench.

Last Friday I brought you a TARDIS closet. Today I bring you some things to put in that closet. Like Princess Leia sneakers. Slave Leia cosplayers lives just got a whole lot more comfortable.

Oh come on, it's not like I'm telling you to put Star Trek clothes in a Star Wars closet. This is entirely cross-fandom acceptable. These shoes, made by Adidas, were released earlier this year. "Inspired by the metal bikini Leia had to wear while Jabba's captive, the adidas Star Wars Game Mid Princess Leia is a spicy swirl of gold, silver and the signature maroon of the Lashaa silk used in that outfit." Well, certainly seems like they know their stuff.

There's several other sneakers that are/will be available soon including: Millennium Falcon Stan Smith 80s, Storm Trooper Boot, The Force and the appropriately named AT-AT Walker. Also from Adidas, the Star Wars Superstar Track Top Darth Vader with...ahem...optional cape.


According to Adidas it's, "a limited edition design inspired by the overlord's Imperial style." The man did have style, I'll give him that. Take a look at this bad boy's features:
  • Front pockets; Full-front zip
  • Removable hood; Ribbed cuffs and hem
  • Detachable Darth Vader cape with chain; Detachable front breast plate with print and embroidery details
  • Darth Vader graphic on reverse
You can peruse the rest of their Star Wars shop or check out fancier shots at StarWars.com. I don't need anymore clothes, I'm think I'll wait until ThinkGeek makes a Ewok sleeping bag.

Can I go shopping with you?
I would totally wear those shoes.

I like them, I REALLY do, but it has the Adidas branding all over it! This is why I shop from places like J!NX and Think Geek: minimal distributor/vendor branding!

Still... I would so totally rock that cape.

I am so tempted. I know, I'm silly.

I've seen some awesome sneaks before. I like the special Joker & Batman ones that came out a couple years ago. There was actually a "tour" of the collectible sneakers that were exhibited like museum art but in exclusive night clubs.

These are so geeky. I think I'd be embarrassed to purchase them, let alone wear them. Haha.
