Adidas released a line of Star Wars trainers. Some of them are inspired by various characters or spaceships, like a Stormtrooper, Tie Fighter, or X-Wing pilot (above). One style has several iconic scenes emblazoned right on the shoes. Each pair comes in a blister pack, inspired I guess by the old action figures. I can't decide if I like the line or find it ultra-cheezy, or both, but one thing I'm certain of is that the ones priced at $200/pair are rather spendy.
