When fashion decides to collaborate with a movie or show you are extremely passionate about, you know you need it, whatever it is. Case in point: GOT fans will go nuts over the Koio x Game Of Thrones sneakers dedicated to none other than Jamie Lannister.
Called "The Kingslayer," these Game of Thrones-inspired shoe is a limited-edition piece that lets you wear your fandom on your feet. Koio, a New York City-based shoe company and HBO teamed up to create these wonderfully shiny set of kicks.
The shoe, which is in the shape of Koio's signature Capri low-top form, is made with Italian leather. On Aug. 31, Koio posted a photo on Instagram announcing the collaboration and showing off their first look.
Here's the catch, though: They're not actually for sale. Bummer, yes, but not as bad as the many cliff-hanging moments Game of Thrones has left its viewers with.
Yeah, this will be breaking hearts everywhere. But, a lucky contest winner will be able to snag a pair. On the Instagram post, the caption tells contestants to repost the photo with the hashtags "#kingslayer" and "#myentry" along with your shoe size and tagging @koiocollective.
Obviously, fans are freaking out in the comments section, writing "Very neat sneakers, hope i win then 😮" and "I. Must. Own!!!" The want makes sense — the fabulous sneakers are both stylish and comfy.
Aside from being gold, a nod to Jamie Lannister's golden hand, which he lost back in season four, the shoe also has a metal hand on the front laces, as well as House Lannister's sigil printed on the back of the shoe.
These Koio x Game of Thrones sneakers are actually part of a larger collective called "Rep The Realm." For the seventh season of the show, seven designers will be creating limited-edition, micro-collections that "Rep the Realm."
Search the hashtag on social, and you'll find more about these collections, from seeing the designs, to learning more about the whole movement. Items include a hoodie, biker jacket, pins, and more. These sneakers are the final item in Rep the Realm.
