We had previously previewed this back earlier in July, but Han Solo is too great a man to not be rehashed fondly. For those in the know, Han Solo is ranked as one of the greatest film heroes in cinematic history (Number 14, to be exact) by the American Film Institute. Han Solo is without a doubt, one of the coolest cultural icons and also one of the most indispensable characters in the Star Wars franchise. As such, when Han Solo was frozen in carbonite by Darth Vader and shipped off the Jabba the Hutt, Solo fans gasped at the blasphemy. Not coincidentally, this is also one of the most memorable moments in the movie franchise. As such, how can adidas Originals’ continued partnership with Star Wars leave out this epic moment in the movie? As Star Wars and adidas Originals returns for a second season of collaboration, Han Solo is worked into the collection which also includes the previously previewed Top Ten Low R2-D2 + C-3PO sneakers. The new Han Solo SL-72 takes on a classic running silhouette, and details are arranged and rework to remind all of the galactic bad boy who changed his loner, vagabond ways for the common good.
The Han Solo SL-72 is crafted with a cool grey carbonite colored upper with black three-stripes, matching black waxed laces, blue midsoles and a red heel tape which is reminiscent of the red sides of Solo’s pants. These shoes are set to hit racks in the coming season, so if you are a Han Solo fan, do keep an eye out for these shoes at your select Star Wars x adidas Originals retailers
