Does Your Loyalty Match Your Style? Adidas & Game of Thrones Ultra Boost Partnership

For those that aren't on top of the sneaker game, Adidas has officially released their partnership with HBO's masterpiece Game of Thrones. The show's popularity combined with the Ultra Boost trend was a massive hit. Immediately after becoming available for purchase, four out of the six shoes sold out. Leaving me to question: Did your loyalty during the show match your style?

So, which shoe are you?

Each shoe includes their name on the tongue, and is designed to have the same "endless energy" and "natural movement" as all of the other Ultra Boosts. The launching proved to be a success and perfectly aligned with the season premiere. This partnership added to the momentum and excitement of what's to come in GoT this year!
