LeBron James was born and raises in the city of Akron and he always kept loyal to it. So as long as LeBron is rocking Nikes, we’re likely to see player exclusive models for his high school alma mater, St. Vincent-St. Mary. Another private b-ball powerhouse, Queens’ Christ the King joints SVSM for a couple of Nike Zoom Lebron Soldier IV PEs.

Recently we showed you the Star Wars lineup from Adidas. These shoes have generally gone over pretty well with fans as Star Wars is one of the most popular movies ever and the characters are some of the most recognized characters in the world. Most of the shoes so far have featured colorways that have been inspired by the colorways of the costumes of the different characters. Today though we are going to look at a pair that we think would be what the Wookies would wear if they had a basketball team. This is the new Star Wars x Adidas Originals Nizza Hi Good. It features a predominantly mesh upper that will come in the color blue. This will be accented by yellow on the stripes and in a line that runs around the length of the sole. And to let you know for which team you are playing there´s a “Wookies” writing around the bootleg. You can see some more pics after the jump.
