Winter is coming and so is Adidas' coolest collaboration yet.
Unless you live under a rock, or just generally hate fun and great television, you've probably been eagerly awaiting the epic conclusion to HBO's Game of Thrones. Whilst you've been reading through every plausible theory as to who will take out the Iron Throne, you've probably also contemplated which house you'd theoretically be in. You might even have made the mistake of picking a favourite character, and for that, we feel your pain. Valar Morghulis.
As possibly the most popular TV show of all time, it makes sense for brand names to get in on the action and create some truly awesome merchandise. Which is exactly what Adidas have just done. First teased late last year, the sportswear giant have now released images of a six-piece sports shoe capsule that allows you to represent your allegiance in style.
Each design will be a reissue of the Ultra Boost 4.0 silhouette. The style boasts a responsive midsole cushioning and stretchy knit upper that adapts to the shape of your foot as you run, making them supremely comfortable as well as seriously stylish.
Inspired by the major houses or groups of characters in the award-winning series, the collaboration will include an iteration for House Stark, House Lannister, House Targaryen, the White Walkers, the Night's Watch and even the Targaryen dragons. Each pair showcases colour schemes representative of its group, along with a sigil or phrase from each figurehead. The six variations also feature Game of Thrones custom insoles.

When can you shop the collection?
Whilst an official release date is yet to be announced, the show's final season will air this April, meaning the collaboration should drop not long before. The Ultra Boost 4.0s usually retail for around $260, though an exclusive collection like this could see the price point pushed closer to the $300 mark.
