As we edge closer to the premiere of Boba Fett’s own TV show next month, adidas has given us an early look at some new footwear honoring the legendary bounty hunter. Check out this Sarlacc-inspired Samba, coming soon.

adidas and Star Wars rekindled their partnership last year, reviving one of the greatest footwear collaborations to ever hit retail shelves. Originally teaming up in the mid-2000s, adidas and Star Wars released a wide ranging collection that turned the Three Stripes’ signature footwear into characters from the films. Beloved by fans, especially the Boba Fett-inspired pairs, the collection quickly became a piece of sneaker history, until last year’s retro. Now, the two are gearing up to celebrate the galaxy’s most-feared bounty hunter in the lead-up to his own TV show, ‘The Book of Boba Fett’. This time around, adidas is using the Samba as their canvas, casting the silhouette in a look inspired by the deadly Sarlacc Pit that Boba fell into in Return and subsequently escaped, re-emerging decades later inĀ The Mandolorian. The Sambas takes on an all-over sandy tone, featuring dark brown stripes and the Sarlacc’s tentacles wrapping around the heels. Sadly, there are no spurs included for a more authentic Boba experience.


The latest project from adidas and Star Wars, celebrating the upcoming ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ Disney+ show has not yet been announced for release, though they are expected to be available before the show’s premiere in December. The sandy-colored Sarlacc Sambas will be available from adidas and select retailers for $120, alongside a small capsule of Boba-themed apparel. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more adidas release news.
