The Game of Thrones season finale is coming and so are these awesome Adidas x Game of Throne Ultraboost sneakers. The sports apparel brand has finally launched the GoT edition of their Ultraboost after we got a steal of their first look back in October 2018. Adidas Canada posted pictures of this collection on their Instagram page, which also stated that these beauties will be available on March 22nd.
The collection is home to six different versions of the Ultra Boost 4.0, with each one of them following a unique Westeros-ian theme. The icey-blue white walker edition and the fierce House Targaryen edition are two that have specifically caught the eye of our audience.
The news of the collaboration was first broken out by Highsnobiety, when they spoke to project manager at Adidas running, Stephan Schneider. Here’s what he said:
When you look at Adidas and HBO, or Game of Thrones particularly, you have two powerhouses and two iconic brands. We wanted to bring a sports icon and blend that with a cultural icon to create a really powerful and meaningful story. HBO was very open to our suggestions for how we would bring everything to life. I think that’s the beauty of the collaboration between Ultra Boost and Game of Thrones. It speaks to all three dimensions, all consumers. So you definitely talk to the sneakerhead, you’ll talk to the Game of Thrones fan, but you’ll also have a shoe that you can actually run in. It’s just a very cool new spin on a running shoe.
There is not one valid reason why these ‘ice blue’ shoes should not be a part of your shoe collection if you are a GoT fan. We already know what a hit the Ultra Boost 4.0 were, this GoT edition just takes them to an all new level.
While, we aren’t sure if there is going to be an edition for every single house, as it hasn’t been confirmed, the House Targaryen edition is absolutely ‘LIT’.
Here are the rest of the shoes from the Game of Thrones x Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 collection.
There are speculations of other colours and “House”editions to be launched soon. With House Stark being the most popular house among fans, we dearly hope there is one of the Starks too!
