Sneaker collaborations have been a hot trend for some time, and it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down in 2019. Adidas is making a name for itself with the amount of high-profile collaborations they’ve been churning out over the last couple of years, and it doesn’t get much more high-profile than teaming up with the biggest TV series in the medium’s history: Game of Thrones.
So – what’s better to combine it with than one of their most popular modern shoe models, the Ultra Boost? For those unfamiliar with Adidas’ shoe tech, their ‘Boost’ cushioning material has been a runaway hit since launch a few years back. The Ultra Boost model is likely the most prevalent from their Boost collection, too, so it makes for an ideal collab candidate.
The line-up has six shoes that are themed after popular groups and houses within the Game of Thrones lore: White Walkers, House Stark, House Lannister, House Targaryen, Targaryen Dragons, Night’s Watch. The coolest part about the team-up is that the designs aren’t absurdly eye-catching, but still do a good job evoking elements of the concept they’re representing. They’re good standalone colourways, but made better (and more sought after) because of their limited release numbers and association with GoT.
So no matter who you’re rooting for when the final season comes, you can match your allegiance with the appropriate pair of Ultra Boosts. Personally, the House Lannister pair has just the kind of colour pop we like!
