Adidas announces six Game of Thrones themed Ultra Boost shoes

Adidas announces six Game of Thrones themed Ultra Boost shoes

Adidas dress their Ultra Boost sneakers up in ‘Game of Thrones’ themes. Let’s hope the show’s final season is somewhat more ambitious than the shoes.

If you thought Adidas’ recent Dragon Ball Z collaboration was a little reserved, then prepare to be utterly unmoved by their new ‘Game of Thrones’ pack. Featuring variations of their popular Ultra Boost 4.0 shoes, Adidas are paying homage to six sigils from HBO’s TV phenomenon.

We won’t find out who claims the iron throne at the conclusion of ‘Game of Thrones’ final season until spring. And it’s a good bet to assume that this Adidas pack won’t be available to buy until April to coincide with the show’s return to our screens.

Until then, feast your eyes on these six variations that represent the White Walkers, The Night’s Watch, House Targaryen, the Targaryen’s dragons, House Stark, and House Lannister.

Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 – House Stark

Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 – White Walkers

Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 – Night’s Watch

Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 – Targaryen’s Dragons

Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 – House Targaryen

Adidas x Game of Thrones

Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 – House Lannister

Adidas’ approach to this collaboration has been subtle to say the least. One could argue a distinct lack of ambition whilst others will appreciate the ‘stark’ approach (pun intended).

Modelled on the Ultra Boost 4.0 silhouette, each variant comes with an embroidered tag on the heel, an insole bearing the ‘Game of Thrones’ title and an embroidered sigil on the underside of the tongue. Other than these unimposing design elements, there’s little more to these shoes than the colourways themselves to give away which element of the show they are paying tribute to.

With the cost of a regular pair of Ultra Boost 4.0 hovering around the £100 mark, expect to pay in excess of that for these special edition sneakers.
