If you were watching Game of Thrones and thought that the only thing missing is a nice pair of kicks that make you look like a Lannister — well, that’s kinda weird — but you’re also in for some good news!
Game of Thrones has teamed up with the sneaker company KOIO to bring you an exclusive pair of Game of Thrones sneakers based upon the aesthetics of the Kingslayer, Jaime Lannister.
Now, before you get too excited, there were only 150 pairs of these made. So, you know, the casualties of any given scene in Game of Thrones. Even when it’s just talking, somewhere, 150 people are dying painful deaths.
They’re being given away as part of an Instagram contest by KOIO. You have to re-post the picture of the sneakers with your shoe size.
They are low-tops with the Lannister crest on the heel, “Kingslayer” printed inside the shoe itself, and the Jaime’s golden prosthetic hand on the lowest lace.
They should also help with your credit score, because a Lannister always pays their debts.
I regret nothing.
Honestly, these are some of the gaudiest looking things I’ve ever seen, and it would be a struggle and a half to find an outfit that didn’t clash with these things.
And yet, at the same time, I wouldn’t be able to say no if someone offered these to me. Gaudy is kind of amazing to me. It’s one of the reasons I love superhero comics so much and miss the hell out of Hawkeye’s classic costume.
So check out KOIO’s Instagram contest if you want to get a chance at winning the “Kingslayer” shoes. They’re more golden than the honeyest of grahams, and I don’t know what that sentence means. Regardless, these shoes exist. There’s an Instagram contest for them. Check it out.
