The pop-up store will channel your inner child thanks to a VR light sabre game and accompanying music from the original trilogy.
The collection consists of three colourways for the Bata Tennis, each representing R2D2, Darth Vader and the Stormtrooper. The Bata Bullets high tops, on the other hand, will arrive in either white or black, representing the light and dark sides.[caption id="attachment_13292" align="alignnone" width="683"] Image: Justinn Lim / The PLAYBOOK[/caption] [caption id="attachment_13296" align="alignnone" width="1024"] Image: Justinn Lim / The PLAYBOOK[/caption] [caption id="attachment_13311" align="alignnone" width="1024"] Image: Justinn Lim / The PLAYBOOK[/caption]

While Bata often gets associated with white school shoes, the company has been making strides in producing exceptionally stylish footwear for the new sneaker-wearing generation and its latest Star Wars collaboration cements its place in today’s sneaker world.
The Star Wars x Bata Heritage capsule collection will feature characters we know and love on the classic Bata Bullets and Tennis silhouettes. Both sneaker silhouettes are iconic in their own right and make the perfect backdrop for this year’s Star Wars Celebration on May the 4th.
The Bata Bullets, for instance, was first introduced in 1964 as a basketball shoe for the Baltimore Bullets and was later relaunched in 2016 just as ‘retro’ became cool again. The Bata Tennis, on the other hand, has been around even longer when it was first manufactured in 1936 for school children in India to wear for P.E.
For the collaboration, the Bullets will come in either white or black, representing the light and dark side of the Force. Light sabers can be found at the back of the shoe to truly give it the Star Wars edge.
The Bata Tennis will take on three variants, each featuring tri-coloured graphics of Darth Vader, R2D2 and the Storm Trooper respectively.
The Star Wars x Bata Heritage SS18 Collection will arrive in Singapore via a curated pop-up store at ION Orchard (Basement 4) from May 4 to May 6, 2018, between 11am to 9pm. The collection will also be available online at bataheritage.com on the same day.
