Pick your favourite from the Game of Thrones x adidas Ultra Boost Collection

March 14th, 2019

Brace yourselves for winter is coming for the last time on April 14th! Ahead of the eight and final season of the HBO hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, adidas is releasing the Game of Thrones x adidas Ultra Boost  collection. Тhis six-piece set pays homage to six of the show’s most prominent houses or groups of characters. There is an iteration for the Night’s Watch, the White Walkers, House Targaryen, the Targaryen’s dragons, House Stark, and House Lannister. Each pair Ultraboosts comes along with its own representative colour and special details like “Hear Me Roar” or “Winter is Here” or a signature crest.

Each shoe in the collection features the BOOST mid sole technology for unlimited energy return, a Primeknit upper for lightweight performance, and the iconic heel counter for adaptability and support.

Here is a closer look at all six visions:

Game of Thrones x adidas Ultra Boost “House Lannister”

House Lannister are rich, powerful and the current rulers of Westeros. Their sigil is a golden lion on a crimson field and their motto is “Hear Me Roar.”

The Primeknit upper is red, the Three Stripes branding is gold. Black hits are present on the tongue, lining, cup heel and the Boost mid sole.

Game of Thrones x adidas Ultra Boost “Targaryen Dragons”

For “House Targaryen” adidas made two versions. The first one draws inspiration from the Targaryen’s close relationship with dragons. The gradient fire-like Primeknit upper is in black and red, the official colours of the house. The Boost mid sole as well as the lace cage and heel cup are all black.

Game of Thrones x adidas Ultra Boost “House Targaryen”

The second one Ultra Boost is all white, with cream and silver on the laces, lace cage, heel cup, and heel tag. The allusion here is to the Targaryens’ distinctive looks. Being an old noble Valyrian family, their features include pale, white skin and silver hair.

The “Fire and Blood” motto is present on the heel tag of both pairs.

Game of Thrones x adidas Ultra Boost “House Stark”

House Stark’s colours are black and grey, so a dark grey Primeknit upper is combined with black lining, mudguard, Boost mid sole, rubber outer sole, heel cup, and Three Stripes branding. The motto of the house, “Winter is Coming,” is sewn onto the heel tag. 

Game of Thrones x adidas Ultra Boost “Night’s Watch”

The guardians of the seven kingdoms patrol the ice wall at the most northern point of Westeros. The Night’s Watch wear black heavy coats to protect them from the cold.

The corresponding Ultra Boost is decked in black and white Primeknit upper, which most likely represents the always snow-covered garb worn by the Night’s Watch. There are more hints to the snowy and icy north – the white mudguard, Boost mid sole, and outer sole. Since the guards are wearing heavy leather and armour, a leather lace cage completes the look.

Game of Thrones x adidas Ultra Boost “White Walker”

Тhe White Walkers’ Ultra Boost is dressed in white Primeknit, with contrasting black Three Stripe branding, liner, and inner of the tongue. The lace cage, heel cup, and mudguard are a translucent icy blue, owing to the Walkers’ frozen natural habitat.

 “Winter is here” is written on a little tag on the heel as a wink to the fans who are well aware that the White Walkers come when the winter does.

The official release of the capsule is on March 22nd on adidas.com, the adidas app, and select retailers worldwide for about £136 per pair.
