Since it first hit screens in 2011, Game of Thrones has made waves across the entertainment landscape, transcending the world of Westeros to firmly anchor itself in modern pop culture.
Now, ahead of its eighth and final season , adidas has reimagined the iconic houses and characters of Westeros in sneaker form. The collaboration features a collection of six limited-edition Ultraboost, each carefully designed to represent the characteristics, colors and details of the heroes and villains to which they refer.
In addition to the icy "White Walker" UltraBoost, Adidas will also be rolling out colorways for House Lannister, House Targaryen (two colorways), House Stark and the Night's Watch. Of course, each pair consists of a colorway inspired by the House it represents as well as Game Of Thrones branded insoles. Additionally, each special edition sneaker includes a heel tab that features a familiar phrase such as "Winter Is Coming" (House Stark) or "Fire And Blood" (House Targaryen).
It was originally believed that the collection would release some time in mid-April, right around the time that the much anticipated final season debuts.
Game of Thrones fans can look forward to the kicks dropping at select Adidas retailers on March 22.
