Season eight of the epic HBO show starts April 14 and what better way to celebrate than with a new pair of running shoes inspired by your favourite characters?
With April right around the corner, Game Of Thrones fans around the world are eagerly waiting to find out who will end up on the Iron Throne when the acclaimed HBO series finally comes to an end. To celebrate one of the most popular shows in history, Adidas has teamed up with the series to release a six-piece set of co-created Ultra Boosts.
Inspired by six of the show’s houses or groups of characters, there will be an iteration for the Night’s Watch, the White Walkers, House Targaryen, the Targaryen’s dragons, House Stark, and House Lannister. The House Targaryen shoe, for instance, features a black and scarlett design, reminiscent of the three-headed fire-breathing dragon. As for the White Walker sneaker, it features corresponding white, black, and icy blue hues.
Along with colour schemes that are representative of these major figures, there is a phrase or sigil from each, like “Winter Is Here” for the White Walkers, and “Hear Me Roar” for the Lannisters. Each pair features a “GoT” sigil on the tongue and the corresponding faction’s motto on the heel tag.
Each pair of sneakers retails for $180. The Adidas x Game of Thrones Ultraboost is available exclusively at adidas.com. The Ultraboost shoe also features Adidas’ signature boost midsoles, a Primeknit upper for lightweight performance, and the iconic heel counter for adaptability and support. So, they are definitely a comfortable way to support your favourite characters.
The running sneakers went live yesterday morning, and unsurprisingly, some are already sold out. Each cart is limited to just one pair per person per style, so pick up a pair while you can— or you might end up having to buy them on eBay next week for double the price.
