The faithful sidekick of Han Solo, or as Princess Leia called “big walking carpet”, Star Wars‘ Chewbacca is actually of noble lineage from a long line of Wookie royalty, despite of his canine-like mug. When the Wookie homeworld of Kashyyyk fell victim to the galactic conquest of the Empire, Chewbacca abandoned his aristocratic stature and became, like many of his compatriots, a wander of galaxy.
That might be the case till now as the Wookie warrior finds a new home among the 2010 Fall and Winter Collection of Star Wars x adidas Originals collaboration. Based on the Joggling Hi, and fittingly so, the Chewbacca edition possessed much of cues associated with Wookies (except the fiery temper). Gradient of brown in suede dominates most of the upper, with lighter earth tone as accents and adidas 3-stripe. Referenced the Joggling Hi’s outdoor heritage are the lug outsole and d-ring lacing system. Last by not least, the faux fur lining on the interior with a glimpse of it peeking out along the ankle collar, making it all the more accurate for Star Wars fans and more fun for the rest of us.
