Everyone has their own favorite character from the Star Wars universe, but Lando Calrissian was always what we like to call a “third-party favorite” because he always perfectly walked the line between interstellar bad boy / gambler and secret good guy. The famous three stripes is paying homage to one of the smoothest characters in the Star Wars galaxy with the adidas Star Wars NMD_R1 V2 “Lando” Sneakers you see here. Take everything you love about the adidas NMD–responsive Boost midsole, sleek styling, clean silhouette, etc.–and combine it with the hues of Lando’s outfit from Empire, his picture on the tongue, one of his quotes on the heel detailing and special lace jewels to give it a truly unique composition and profile. If you’re looking for a way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars Episode V, there’s nothing better. The adidas Star Wars NMD_R1 V2 “Lando” Sneakers drop on Thursday, September 17th at 5pm.
