40 years ago, George Lucas gave us one of the greatest movie sequels of all time.  “The Empire Strikes Back” is one of the best, if not the best Star Wars movie.  Not only was it a great movie but it also introduced to one of the franchise's most popular characters Boba Fett.  He had just over six and a half minutes of screen time in “Empire” and somehow people became extremely fascinated with the galactic bounty hunter.

All these years later and not much has changed.  In honor of the 40-year anniversary of Boba Fett’s big-screen debut, Adidas has released a shoe to pay homage to the bounty hunter.  The Boba Fett Top Ten Hi is currently on sale for Star Wars fanatics and sneakerheads alike.  They do look pretty cool, honestly.  Now, whether or not they are worth the $110 is totally up to you.  However, they would make a nice addition to your shoe or Star Wars Collection.

Here is a description of the shoes from Adidas.com

A redesign of the Top Ten Hi silhouette to honor the mysterious bounty hunter with few words and many fans. A special colorway with the same hues that made Boba Fett stand out from his imperial mates. ​​Debuted in 1979, just one year before the release of "The Empire Strikes Back", the Top Ten Hi was first designed for high performance on the basketball courts. It is one of the most celebrated adidas streetwear silhouettes today and its minimal design makes it a perfect representation of Boba Fett. It even has holes that allow the skin to breathe just like his armor. The print on the sockliner shows him standing at Lando Calrissian's base next to Darth Vader's troopers. On the inside flap of the attached pocket, you'll read his iconic line: "You can run, but you'll only die tired."​​Whether you're part of his fan club or an admirer of the Top Ten Hi heritage, this piece celebrating the 40th Star Wars anniversary of Episode V is worth adding to your collection. A poster and Star Wars lace jewels are included in the special packaging of this shoe.
