HBO Asia x Game of Thrones Custom Sneakers

HBO Asia celebrates the coming season 8 of Game of Thrones with the release of four custom pairs of adidas trainers. Tapping into some of the non-extinct houses as well as the White Walkers, we see House Lannister translated in a black, red and gold pair of Continental 80s, House Stark represented by a pair of earthy adidas Falcons, House Targaryen in the form of a desert-camo Stan Smith, and finally the White Walkers by the adidas Micro R1. On top of getting custom paint jobs that reflect each house’s respective colors, the sneakers also see gold foil crest stampings and ornamentation via leather collar skirts, beadwork, and metal hardware. It feels like the entire world is waiting for GoT‘s final season to air, and this foray into footwear is just another way HBO Asia is creatively building up more excitement. We’ll have to see come April 14th if the 8th season lives up to the buzz.
