If you are BOTH a big Star Wars fan and a fan of the Three Stripes, you should love that both are gearing up to one of the biggest collab collections to date. There’s a collection for adidas’ basketball line, for its performance running line, and for its lifestyle Boost-equipped sneakers. Heck, even the futuristic AlphaEdge 4D gets a subtle collab.
The massive collection is a great opportunity for adidas to bring back to life some of its then-popular silhouettes like the NMD R1. We have seen the Yoda version, and it appears that Princess Leia is getting her own version as well.
The “Princess Leia” NMD R1 sports a camouflage mesh upper that pays tribute to the poncho Princess Leia used during the Battle of Endor scene at A New Hope. You get mostly earthly tones on this sneaker, a sketch of Princess Leia on the tongue, and her words” There is Hope” stamped on the heel part of the Boost midsole.
The NMD R1 “Princess Leia” is expected to drop on December 2.
