You’ve got a friend in Adidas as the famous sports brand releases a pair of Toy Story-themed trainers. Kickstarting Pixar’s critically acclaimed slate of movies back in 1995, Toy Story claims the crown as the world’s first movie to be made entirely in CGI.
After an agonising wait between Toy Story 2 in 1999 and Toy Story 3 in 2010, the franchise seems to be rounding off with a fourth movie. To celebrate Josh Cooley’s upcoming epic, everyone is cashing in on Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang.
While rumours of a potential Adidas/Toy Story collab emerged earlier this month, Pixar patrons can now get an official look at the Toy Story 4 x adidas UltraBOOST 19.
Themed around Buzz Lightyear, the trainers have the Star Command ranger’s typical colouring and Adidas Primeknit fabric. The shoes are finished with a Toy Story 4 tongue tab and the footbed has a picture of Buzz Lightyear himself.
Unfortunately, it looks like these are the only Toy Story 4 trainers. Anyone hoping for a Woody or Emperor Zurg version will be slightly disappointed. Alongside Tom Hank’s portrayal of the stalwart sheriff, Tim Allen’s Buzz has become one of Toy Story‘s most marketable characters.
Earlier this year, Hanks shared a tear-jerking response to the movie. Hanks has closed a chapter on one of the most recognised and loved fictional characters of all time and we’re feeling very emotional about the whole thing.
The 62-year-old actor took to social media to share a photo of the recording taking place. The Oscar-winning actor wrote: “Final line, final session as Woody of Toy Story 4. We rode like the wind, to infinity and beyond. Hanx”
Hanks first appeared as the character way back in 1995, the first three instalments alone have grossed more than $1.9 billion worldwide.
The new film is set for release June 21 and will follow the gang taking a road trip with a bizarre new character, Forky.
There’s been no official comment that the fourth film will be the final in the franchise, though it’s generally thought that this will be the curtain call.
“When I went in for my last day of recording, I wanted to have my back to them, because usually you’re facing them so you can look right up and you can talk about it,” Hanks told BBC.
“But I didn’t want to see them and I wanted to pretend they couldn’t see me. When I realized what they were going for, I realized, ‘Oh, this is a moment in history.'”
The Toy Story 4 x Adidas collaboration will release alongside the movie premiere on June 21.
