A Lannister always pays his debts, but sometimes that reimbursement arrives in the form of limited-edition shoes.
Italian sneaker manufacturer KOIO has collaborated with HBO on the Kingslayer, a gold low-top inspired by fan-favorite Game of Thrones character Jaime Lannister. However, the shoes won't be available in stores; instead, KOIO will offer 150 pairs exclusively through a giveaway on its Instagram page.
Played on the hit drama by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jaime became known as the Kingslayer after he killed the Mad King Aerys Targaryen, whom he was sworn to protect, during the rebellion that ended with Robert Baratheon ascending the throne. The low-tops pay tribute to Jaime with a shoelace tag in the shape of a hand, a reference to the gold prosthetic he wears in place of the one severed while he was a prisoner of House Bolton. The Lannister crest is also stamped on the heel of the shoes.
Game of Thrones' final season doesn’t yet have a release date, but the penultimate season is now available in full on HBO Go and HBO Now. Based on George R.R. Martin’s bestselling fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, the hit drama stars Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen and Kit Harington as Jon Snow.
