As Star Wars: The Force Awakens premieres in the Philippines today, brands here and there have climbed on the bandwagon of crafting products inspired by the popular “space opera.” Including sports brands that are already familiar to us, of course. And, boy, we’re loving it!
Check out some of these George Lucas-approved items we’re totally including in our wish list this holiday season! (Unfortunately, none of them have developed light sabers, but that deserves another story.)
Remember when this edgy American brand came up with their Avengers-themed compression shirts earlier? They’re doing it again with Star Wars, complete with the guaranteed comfort, mobility, sun protection, anti-odor technology, and “Moisture Transport System” that draws off sweat. Check out the following Vader and Trooper compression shirts!
Like Nike (which, surprisingly, isn’t joining the Star Wars mania this year, perhaps already satisfied with their futuristic-looking, 'self-lacing' Back to the Future shoes), adidas used to have really nifty kicks inspired by the film franchise. Google their Skywalker “Rebel X-Wing Fighter,” Forum Mid “AT-AT,” and, of course, their Consortium Superstars, if you wanna know what we’re talking about. This time, the brand has only come up with ones for their Kids and Infants Originals collections. They only left us with a vintage airliner bag and a gym sack, both of which you can only order from overseas... so, suit yourself.
A little similar to Vans’ Star Wars collection released earlier (their site reveals that “The Force is no longer” on their page LOL), Skechers’ recent series comprises two men's deck shoes with a poster art and printed text of the movie title on the upper of the pair, respectively. They’ve got more for kids, and they’re really adorable, if you ask us!
