Launching just ahead of the show’s eighth and final season, due to hit screens April 14, the new collection of six limited-edition Ultraboost silhouettes has been inspired by the locations and characters of Westeros, including the House of Stark, Lannister, and Targaryen as well as the Nights Watch and White Walkers.

References to the Game of Thrones world include a motto on the heel tag and a symbol on the tongue, with each house or group of characters also inspiring the colorway of each of the six shoes.
