Yes, season eight is only one month away (hold onto your dragon!)...and now we finally have a release date for the Game of Thrones-themed sneakers as well.
Back in November, Adidas teased a GoT-themed collection of Ultraboost sneakers, leaked by the Yeezy Mafia Twitter account in July. On Monday, Adidas confirmed the sneakers will be available on March 22.
The collection will feature six House-themed pairs in all. So far, we've seen two House Targaryen styles (one red and black and one all-white), plus a White Walkers version of white and black with ice-blue details. Sneaker collector @solebyjc debuted two of those styles on his Instagram account last year, and we’re digging the little slogan-bearing flag attached to the back (the White Walker one says “Winter is here,” while the House Targaryen ones read “Fire and blood”).
The other three will be a Night's Watch black-and-white pair, House Lannister in red and gold and House Stark in gray and black. Each pair will retail for $180 and be available on Adidas.com beginning March 22.
Thrones-fans will flip for the details, which include GoT-branded insoles as well as the house heel tab and house motifs displayed on the back tongue tags. (Just one question: Are these good for running away from the Night King?)
Call the Iron Bank. We’re going to withdraw some coin for the perfect pair of shoes to outrun the Army of the Dead.
