Winter is coming. And so is the ultimate season of Game of Thrones. And apparently so is a line of Thrones-themed sneakers. Wait, what?
To tie in with the ultimate season of HBO’s massively in style sequence set to premiere in a bit over two months, Adidas has unveiled a brand new line of Game of Thrones athletic footwear. Because nothing says feudal society with kings, knights, undead White Walkers and dragons like…sneakers. Okay, high quality. Like we’ve stated earlier than, it’s not like that is among the many weirdest merchandise to tie in to a movie or TV present. (Not even shut.)
According to Sneaker News, which first broke the information, Adidas is releasing six pairs of footwear inside its Ultra Boosts line impressed by the present’s most well-known homes or characters. There’s a pair of footwear representing the Night’s Watch, the White Walkers, House Targaryen, the Targaryen’s dragons, House Stark and House Lannister.
Each pair includes a tiny tag within the again stating a phrase or sigil representing that home or group, corresponding to “Winter Is Here” for the White Walkers, “Winter is Coming” for House Stark and “Hear Me Roar” for the Lannisters.
To be sincere, it’s a bit bizarre that these footwear aren’t bloodstained.
Now, these footwear aren’t the one merchandise on the market related to the sequence. There have been GoT beers, GoT wines, GoT fragrance (severely), even GoT lunchboxes (y’know…for youths!). If there’s a sci-fi and/or fantasy franchise on the market, likelihood is, there’s gonna be some merchandise hooked up to it, regardless of how weird.
Although Adidas hasn’t particularly introduced when these footwear can be obtainable for buy past someday within the spring, the ultimate season of Game of Thrones premieres on HBO April 14, so probably inside that window.
