new Ultra Boost kicks for fans

May the footwear be with you.

Adidas launches its new “Star Wars” collaboration with Lucasfilm into the fashion stratosphere Thursday with a new Space Battle pack, to be followed by characters-themed kicks on Nov. 29.

The just-released Space Battle pack pairs Adidas’ popular running shoe brands with beloved “Star Wars” icons.

The $180 UltraBOOST 19 pays homage to the speediest “hunk of junk in the galaxy,” IGN reports. The blue and grey design features a futuristic metallic element reminiscent of the Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon, while the heel contains the iconic starship’s “blueprints.”

Get ready to fan out, franchise diehards: A tab on the back of the trainer is emblazoned with Solo’s “Never tell me the odds” catchphrase and “Jump to lightspeed.”

Meanwhile, the $180 UltraBOOST S&L is an ode to the Rebel Alliance’s X-Wing Starfighter with a grey and orange outer shell, reflective detailing and strip bearing the legendary words: “May the Force be with you, always.”

Finally, the more subtle (and more pricey at $300) Alphaedge 4D shoe is fashioned after the Death Star, with “The power of the Dark Side” is stamped on the heel tabs.

The new capsule collections — dubbed Adidas x Star Wars 2019 — quietly debuted Nov. 1 with a Lightsaber-themed version “designed for the players who wear them,” as the brand hypes in a statement.

It’s all part of a push to get fans to gear up for the Dec. 20 release in the sci-fi franchise, “The Rise of Skywalker.”

Flashback: Nov. 1’s debut Lightsaber line features eight custom basketball shoe iterations: The Harden Vol. 4 with purple accents pays homage to Mace Windu jedi character, while the Dame 5 is an throwback to Luke Skywalker’s iconic green lightsaber.

Inspired by the “unbreakable bond” between a Jedi and their lightsabers, the shoes are tricked out with “kyber crystal-themed elements” on each silhouette’s UV midsole.

Rivalry Lo and Crazy 1 designs “shed light on Darth Vader and the dark side,” while the Top Ten iteration is dedicated to the legendary Jedi hero Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The line inspired by a galaxy far, far away also features athleisure apparel including hoodies, sweatpants and crewnecks. The merch goes for $70-$300 online and at select Adidas locations.
