Set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi, the Mandalorian is the first live-action series in the Star Wars franchise, created by Jon Favreau for Disney+. Starring Pedro Pascal as the title character, a lone bounty hunter who is hired to retrieve “The Child” a.k.a. Baby Yoda, the Mandalorian first premiered on 12th November 2019 with an eight episode season. Met with overwhelmingly positive reviews, viewer’s excitement for an upcoming season continue to mount, especially now with the announcement of all-new Mandalorian-inspired Adidas sneakers.
The collection which will showcase nine unique sneakers, include a selection of riffs on the adidas Boost, Superstar, Gazelle and Top Ten Hi. With several call-outs to memorable moments from the show’s first season, brand and series enthusiasts can expect tribute shoes to Mando and The Child, amongst many others.
Paying homage to the iconic showdown between Mando and the Mudhorn creature when The Child harnesses The Force for the first time, the ZX 2K Boost Mudhorn sneaker features immaculate detail and symbolism, incorporating a mix of depictions on its sockliner, alongside intermingling shades of brown and mint green intended to represent the unlikely kinship which form between the show’s main stars.
Remember the conflicting emotions felt when Moff Gideon was revealed as the holder of the Darksaber? Or when Mando who gained possession of Boba Fett’s old suit was devoured by the Krayt dragon? The paramount dismay and worry of The Child can now be re-lived forever through the iconic Gazelle sneaker, which represents the season’s final scene with a contrasting 3-Stripe glow, intended to replicate those of a lightsaber.
Available for sale exclusively through the Adidas official website and at dedicated outposts, The Gazelle Darksaber sneakers, ZX 2K Boost Mudhorn, and others are worth an estimated $70 and $150 USD.
