In case you didn’t know, there’s exactly 17 days (April 14) till the first episode of the last ever season of Game of Thrones rolls out. And if reading that sentence didn’t make you tear up a little, we can’t be friends.
In the wake of this auspicious GOT time in our lives, the whole world’s been obsessed with GOT as should be expected. Cue the new Adidas line of GOT-themed sneakers. Yep, that’s right. Thanks to the ingenuity of this beloved footwear brand, you can rock your favourite Thrones house on your kicks and walk anywhere with pride.
The kicks are the Adidas Ultraboosts which have received a total revamp in their design, as inspired by the noble families that reside within the Seven Kingdoms and beyond The Wall.

2. adidas x Game of Thrones House Stark Ultraboost
"Winter is Coming" - the words of House Stark of Winterfell. Another one of the Great Houses of Westeros who rule over the North, from their seat at Winterfell. When you wear the Stark-grey shoes, you embrace the direwolf nature an their strong sense of loyalty. Wearing this shoe will deffs earn you some serious street cred because "The North Remembers".

This blue-toned icy sneaker is made in the likeness of the Night King. Chills.
4. adidas x Game of Thrones Night’s Watch Ultraboost
"Night gathers, and now my watch begins" - words from the revered Night's Watch oath. If you prefer this dark grey and black shoe, you must be one brave soul, similar to our brothers at Castle Black, who bravely risk their lives defending The Wall. We thank you for your noble service.
5. adidas x Game of Thrones House Targaryen (W) Ultraboost
"Fire and Blood" - the words of the House Targaryen of Dragonstone. This silver design is crafted for all those fierce, fearless females who side with the dragons of House Targaryen.

6. adidas x Game of Thrones House Targaryen (M) Ultraboost
This fiery sneaker is just as wild as the person who decides to put it on. The particular design is for males who side with the dragons of House Targaryen.
As of now, only the sneakers inspired by House Targaryen and House Lannister are available in the UAE. Sad news but, we'll take what we can get.
The adidas x GOT collection is priced at Dhs750 per pair, and you can purchase them online at shop.adidas.ae.
You'll also be pleased to note that the new series of the hit show will be aired on OSN in the UAE at the same time as it does in the US. The new season will begin on April 15 at 11pm UAE time on OSN Series First HD.
That gives us around two weeks to rewatch all seven seasons before then. Alright, we're signing out to go hibernate in our new GOT sneakers and binge on all the episodes till then.
