For the launch of Boba Fett’s Book on Disney +, the character offers himself a collaboration with Adidas. Two new sneakers in the colors of the license’s iconic bounty hunter.
The Book of Boba Fett concludes a busy year for Disney +. If the Star Wars license was rather discreet in 2021, after season 2 of The Mandalorian, things should accelerate at the dawn of the year 2022. The new series of Jon Favreau explores the destiny of the character played by Temuera Morrison, after his fall which one imagined fatal in the bowels of a Sarlacc. It will be a question of raising some gray areas on the past of the bounty hunter, and to put in images his takeover in Tatooine.
The first episode went live yesterday morning and to mark the occasion Lucasfilm has teamed up with Adidas again. The two companies have made two new pairs of sneakers, in the colors of Boba Fett. This is not the first time that the character is awarded a limited edition, he had already been entitled to Top Ten in his honor.
This time, it is the mythical NMD R1 and Ozelia who offer themselves a foray into the franchise. The first adopts the visual elements of the character’s Mandalorian armor, tinged with green and black. There are also some red details on the soles, to complete the look. A rather discreet style, far from the exuberant design of the R2D2 and C3PO collections unveiled last year. What to show his love for Star Wars, without falling into bad taste.
Boba Fett takes to the skies
The second pair, an Ozelia, borrows the look of the bounty hunter’s ship. The shoes are therefore tinted green and light brown, to recall the body of the old cuckoo clock. Black lines also recall the silhouette of the ship, and add a new dimension to the shoes. It should be noted that the insole has the yellow logo of the license, as if to confirm its belonging to the very very distant galaxy. Finally, the Adidas logo on the tongue also sports the iconic colors of the franchise, to allow customers to proudly display their passion.
It’s good to mark the launch of the first episode of the Book by Boba Fett that this collaboration was born. Unsurprisingly, it is therefore officially launched this Thursday, December 30 in the United States. On the other hand, after a quick overview of the French site, it seems that France is not yet affected by this launch. We can nevertheless hope that they will land a little later in our green regions. A dedicated collection has already been marketed, and is currently still available. We find jogging in the colors of the character, as well as tap dancing. Patience, the site will have to be carefully monitored in the coming weeks.
Across the Atlantic, sneakers are available at 150 dollars for the NMD-R1 and 100 dollars for the Ozelia. We can therefore expect that the German supplier will adopt the same price range at the time of a possible launch in France.
