adidas’ collaboration with HBO’s Game of Thrones is no secret at this point. Pairs have been leaked online for weeks now, though only recently have we received a good look at the brightest pair of the bunch. Check adidas Ultra Boost “White Walkers” below.
Collaboration is coming. Next year, HBO’s smash-hit Game of Thrones will give their take on an adidas Ultra Boost for each family in the show. This announcement comes as such a surprise because it feels very strange for a TV show of this caliber that hardly makes its own merchandise to be interested in such a high-profile collaboration. However, it is very fitting. Next year, GoT’s eight-season run on HBO is coming to a close, and many fans are agonizing over what will happen to their favorite characters. While the leak of a project from Thrones and adidas doesn’t give us any answers, it certainly gives us something to look forward to as the final season quickly approaches. This week, the White Walker themed pair has finally surfaced online in stunning on foot images. The special edition Ultra Boost begins with a white Primeknit upper, reinforced with a translucent ice blue tone on the cage, heel counter, and toe box taping. The Ultra Boost cages’ raised stripes are painted black to match the inner lining and leather tongue tab, while a plain white midsole rounds out the colorway. Finally, the Game of Thrones-themed heel tab carries the “Winter is Here” phrase, while the lace aglets read “White Walkers”.
While no precise release has been announced for the new adidas x Game of Thrones collaboration, the project is slated to arrive sometime in 2019. Due to the timing of the next and final season, the footwear collection is likely to release either in the early months of the year or in stages in tandem with the show.
