Who do you pledge allegiance to? After months of anticipation and speculation, Adidas has officially dropped its Game of Thrones collection, so it’s time to decide where your loyalties lie.

The Adidas x Game of Thrones trainers offer a Seven Kingdoms-themed take on the brand’s popular Ultra Boost line. Six new designs mirror well-known elements from the show.

There are White Walker trainers in icy blue; House of Targaryen shoes that come in a mix of fiery orange and black, and all-white with metallic silver stripes; a House of Lannister version in bright red with gold stripes; House of Stark trainers that come in a solid shade of dark grey; and Night’s Watch trainers that are, as might be expected, all-black with a white mudguard.

Tags attached to the heels of the shoes feature well-known phrases from the hit television show, including “Winter is Coming”, “Winter is Here” and “Fire and Blood”. House crests are hidden away at the throat of the sneakers.

The shoes are all unisex, with a lightweight knit upper that allows your foot to splay naturally, according to Adidas. Meanwhile, a fitcounter molded heel counter provides a natural fit that allows optimal movement of the Achilles heel.

The sneakers are available to purchase now on www.adidas.ae and retail for Dh750. You’ll have to hurry, though – only the white House of Targaryen and red House of Lannister versions are currently available on the UAE site and on Adidas’ US site, three of the six designs have already sold out.
