It was an open secret, but these days Adidas has confirmed through the social networks: from March 22 they will launch a special edition of the emblematic Ultraboost inspired by the last season of Game of Thrones.
Coinciding with the arrival of the final season of the series, Adidas has created six different models: Westeros, Stark, Lannister, Targaryen, Night Watch and White Walkers.
References to the world of Game of Thrones include a slogan on the heel tag and a symbol on the tongue linked to each house or characters. The Ultraboost had become popular among athletes for the materials of its sole.
The material of which the shoes are composed is known as TPU and it’s made of a set of ganged capsules that conserve some of the energy of the stride and release it later. It also has the advantage of being much more resistant to heat than other similar materials: for example three times more than EVA rubber.
