Square Enix Reveals GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Adidas Sneakers Collaboration
Square Enix and Marvel have revealed that they will be teaming up with Adidas for a new collaboration that will bring six new sneakers inspired by Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy video game.
The collection is set to launch in 2022 and will feature six unique sneakers, each inspired by one of the Guardians. There will be two sneakers based on Eidos Montreal‘s vision of Star-Lord along with one for Gamora, Drax, Groot, and Rocket Raccoon. No price has been revealed for the sneakers, but with the arrival set for next year, I am sure more information is bound to come our way.
Adidas senior designer James Liu shared some words in the press release, saying:
“A key starting point for the design of each sneaker was the unique visual cues from each of the characters – whether it’s the stitching details on Star-Lord’s leather jacket, Groot’s earthy color palette, or Drax’s unmistakeable tattoos, from there, we wanted to inlay various design discovery elements that helped further bring the story of reach character to life. Bringing it all together across the collection are unique signifiers for this original take on Guardians of the Galaxy as a Super Hero team – with matching sockliners, hang tags, labels, and packaging.”
