Adidas Originals Unveils Yoda Stan Smith, Forever Kicks

The Yoda shoe is the latest silhouette in the company’s initiative to end plastic waste.

Adidas Originals has revealed the latest sustainable take on its Stan Smith shoe as part of the brand’s larger initiative to end plastic waste. The shoe’s design is inspired by Yoda from the “Star Wars” galaxy and features embossed quotes and graphic tongue and heel tabs.

Building on its collection of Disney, Pixar, Marvel and “Star Wars” characters, the new iteration of the sustainable Stan Smith, Forever galactic model features an eco-friendly upper composed of a series of recycled material technology.

The custom design reimagines the footwear with Jedi master Yoda and tennis player Stan Smith-inspired graphics on the tongue. The sneaker also has a recycled rubber outsole and features the Yoda’s words of wisdom, “Do or do not. There is no try,” alongside his face embossed on the heel tabs.

The adidas Originals Stan Smith silhouette inspired by Yoda will launch on May 5 via and in select stores worldwide.
