Knowing a good tie-in when it sees one, Adidas couldn't pass up a collection inspired by Avengers: Age of Ultron that, of course, includes a Quicksilver sneaker.
The lines of shoes and apparel for children and adults, with the former having their choice of T-shirts, shorts, sneakers and accessories based on the Hulk, Iron Man and Captain America. The kid's collection will be complemented by running shoes for grownups in four designs, but the star is the silver-green "Quicksilver" Adizero Prime Boost (above), which the company teases will be worn in the Marvel Studios sequel by "an exciting new Avengers character." Who could that be?
It's referred to at one point in the Adidas materials as the "Quicksilver Hyperfast," which sounds ridiculous and wonderful at the same time.
The entire collection will be available in stores and online by May 1, in time for the North American premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
